When his daughter was a little girl, Francis Coppola made her a promise that he would someday make a sparkling wine and name it after her. Today, this Blanc de Blancs is one of our most popular offerings, a favorite for parties and weddings.
Fruity and refreshing, Sofia Blanc de Blancs is a rare blend of Pinot Blanc, Muscat, and Riesling. Mellow flavors of apples and pears are topped by a hint of citrus and honeysuckle. Elegant in character, this wine is lightly textured and vibrant through the finish.
- A light sparkling wine with an elegant, feminine flair.
- Each bottle is gift-wrapped in pink cellophane styled after a peony.
We pick our grapes at a lower brix (sugar level) to ensure that our sparkling wine has a more modest alcohol content. The fruit is wholecluster pressed into stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation, and then blended before undergoing secondary fermentation using the Charmat method. By adding small amounts of Riesling into the blend, exotic notes of pineapple peak through, while the inclusion of Muscat contributes aromas of honeysuckle and apricots.
From this stellar vintage, our Sofia Blanc de Blancs offers a gorgeous perfume of tropical fruit and white blossoms along with lively flavors of citrus, melon and minerals.
