When winemakers Pete Stolpman and Rajat Parr decided to collaborate on this particular project, wondrous things inevitably would happen.

Pete and his parents had been growing native French varietals in Ballard Canyon for years, though once Raj discovered the pale limestone soils, the Jura native variety Trousseau made its home here. They bottled a Pet-nat of Trousseau—the only Trousseau Pet-Nat in the world! As the oldest method of sparkling winemaking, this style is considerably unique. This wine was harvested, disgorged, and bottled early all to retain freshness and life with the bubbles created naturally in the bottle.
