One of the great things about a West Coast Book Launch Tour (for my new book, KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris, France) is there were great travel and wine experiences to be had…from Washington to Oregon to California!
We started in Seattle which meant Washington wine. Just into town, a friend gave us a bottle of Treveri Cellars “Blanc de Blanc” Extra-Brut. The same winery happened to be featured at an event Saturday night at Bottlehouse, a great little wine bar in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood. This time the Trevari Cellars Sparkling Rosé.
Treveri is a family-owned sparkling wine house in Washington’s Columbia Valley. They opened in November 2010 with a mission to put Washington sparkling wine on the map. Since its opening, Treveri wine has been served at White House State Department receptions and the James Beard Foundation in New York.
Producing a wide array of sparkling wines, including non-traditional varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Petite Verdot, Mueller-Thurgau and Syrah, Treveri focuses on 100% varietal sparkling wines.
The “Blanc de Blanc” Extra-Brut is very interesting and bursting with apple notes. But my favorite was the…
- Variety: Chardonnay and Syrah
- Aroma: Berry and citrus
- Taste: Sparkling strawberry with hints of rhubarb
- Price: $18
- My thoughts: This is an excellent sparkling AND rosé…similar to something you’d taste from France. It was a big hit with the crowd at the event!
Cheers to this great sparkler from Washington!
