Carneros, CA – As COVID-19 restrictions are gradually being lifted, Domaine Carneros, the highly lauded sparkling wine house in the Carneros AVA of California, is excited to introduce two new offerings, both available to visiting guests as of April 1st.

The second iteration of their “Bubbles & Bites” food & wine pairing, specially curated to highlight the flavors of cuisines around the globe, now transports guests to Mexico. This new menu, beginning April 1, 2021, highlights the depth and vibrancy of fine Mexican cuisine, finding inspiration in history, family, and the freshest local ingredients. The experience is led by one of their most seasoned wine educators, and includes a seasonal menu of four savory bites and one sweet bite, each of which has been specially designed to pair with four Domaine Carneros sparkling wines – the Ultra Brut, Estate Brut Cuvee, Brut Rosé and Vermeil Demi-Sec. To book this experience ($90 per person excluding gratuity and tax), guests may call 707-257-0101 x 150, email or reserve online.

Additionally, beginning April 1st, Domaine Carneros will be offering a new unforgettable and elevated tasting experience: The Art of Sabrage. This experience, offered Monday through Thursday for parties of two to six people, shares the history, legend and technique of this dramatic ritual which dates back to the age of Napoleon. This experience includes four tastes of Domaine Carneros sparkling wines paired with a selection of local artisanal delights from Journeyman Meats, Cowgirl Creamery, and Tsar Nicoulai caviar and includes the sabering demonstration. To book this experience ($150 per person excluding gratuity and tax), guests may call 707-257-0101 x 150, email or reserve online.

About Domaine Carneros 

Founded in 1987, Domaine Carneros reflects the hallmark of its founder, Champagne Taittinger, in creating a vision of terroir-driven sparkling wine and preserving the quality tenets of the traditional method production.  Located entirely within the Carneros AVA, between Napa and Sonoma counties, the six estate vineyards total approximately 400 acres with 125 acres planted to Chardonnay, 225 acres planted to Pinot Noir, with the remaining acres currently in development. The winery focuses on making ultra-premium Carneros sparkling wines largely estate grown and limited production Pinot Noirs. 

Domaine Carneros’ château has become a landmark and symbol of the region. The architecture and interior design were inspired by the 18th century Château de la Marquetterie, the historic Taittinger family residence in the Champagne region.  In March of this year, the San Francisco Chronicle named Domaine Carneros one of the top 25 Best Bay Area Wineries to Visit. 

The winery also places a high value on preserving the environment and has been a leader with respect to a vast array of environmental undertakings. The roof of the pinot noir winery adjacent to the château hosts a solar array that was the largest on any winery in the world when it was installed and this year, a state of the art microgrid system will be installed which will help the winery with 85% of its energy needs.  Two of the most recent awards, were the California Green Medal for Domaine Carneros’ demonstration of “Smart Business through efficiencies, cost savings and innovation from implementing sustainable practices,” and in 2020, the Napa Climate Now Climate Champion in the Business category.
