In a Northern pocket of the valley on the timbered hills of Diamond Mountain, Schramsberg quietly takes the valley's best chardonnay grapes and pinot noir to craft their renowned sparkling wines. With a dedication to quality and tradition, the vineyard has established itself as a premier producer of sparkling wines in Napa Valley.

Everyone involved with Schramsberg Vineyard believes in sticking to their successful style of sparkling wine. From hand-riddling each bottle to carefully selecting the grapes, every step of the winemaking process is done with precision and passion.

What is riddling? Schramsberg Vineyards does it by hand. As if choreographed, Jesus Calderon periodically rotates bottles of sparkling wine to ensure a consistent and high-quality product. This attention to detail sets Schramsberg apart from other wineries.

Today, Schramsberg offers three entry-points to their particular brand of sparkling. There's Mirabelle, offering all the excitement and effervescence of a sparkling wine at a more accessible price point. For those seeking a more refined experience, Schramsberg's Blanc de Blancs and Blanc de Noirs deliver complexity and elegance.

Napa Valley is the great American wine region. But with more than 500 wineries — and tasting fees that aren't cheap — it can be hard to stand out. Schramsberg, with its rich history and dedication to quality, has earned a place among the top wineries in the region.

The price of Champagne has risen, but good alternatives are made all over the wine-producing world. They might taste different but they are equally delightful. Schramsberg Vineyard's sparkling wines offer a high-quality and affordable alternative to traditional Champagne.
