  Korbel Merlot Champagne
The 1999 Korbel Merlot Champagne is an experimental cuvee made from merlot grown in the Sonoma Valley and Russian River areas of Sonoma County. These areas produce very intense fruit driven varietal flavors in merlot. The merlot grapes used in this cuvee were fermented on the skins, in the traditional red wine manner. After barrel aging, the cuvee was bottle fermented in the Methode Champenoise tradition, combining the richness of merlot table wines, with the fun and sparkle of champagne.
  Korbel Moscato Frizzante
Korbel Moscato Frizzante is a delightfully aromatic and sweet summer sparkler, perfect for sipping on a hot summer day. We make our Moscato from the Muscat Canelli grape, the same grape as used for the production of the sparkling wines of Asti in Northern Italy. We harvest the grapes fully mature from warmer climates, where the Muscat can develop its trademark floral and sweet fruit characters to the fullest. Unlike most sparkling Moscatos, this cuvée was bottle fermented in the Méthode Champenoise tradition. This cuvée is a very limited release, and is only available in our wine shop and to our wine club members. Try Korbel Moscato Frizzante with fruits and fruit-based deserts.
