New Sparkling Wine from Casa Larga Vineyards

Casa Larga Vineyards is releasing a new wine. The 2017 Muscat Ottonel Pétillant Naturel is a sparkling wine, fermented naturally from Muscat grapes harvested in 2017. The wine represents both a new wine in the portfolio for Casa Larga, as well as a different approach to winemaking. Muscat Ottonel was one of the first grape varietals planted in the vineyards on Turk Hill Road in Fairport when the winery began in 1974. The Muscat grapes are the first to be picked during fall harvest, and the 2017 Muscat Ottonel Pétillant Naturel was also the first of the year's harvest to be bottled - just 10 days after harvest.  Watch this YouTube video...
