PLACE

This limited sparkling wine originates from the same SIP Certified Sustainable block that goes into the Sea Queen Albarino. These sparkling wine grapes, however, are picked at a lower ripeness level. 

It embraces Albarino’s ability to soak up all the elements of the sea both above and below the ground. Grown just 5.5 miles from the Pacific, this wine brand demonstrates why the Edna Valley has proven to be the New World home of Albarino. 

There is no doubt that Albarino has found its home in the Edna Valley and it is only highly fitting that the exploration of the varietal has found its way into a micro production of a zero dosage sparkling wine bottle. Albarino speaks to the nearby Pacific and is loaded with lively natural acidity. A sip brings drinkers to the sound of waves in the sea.
