Everyone loves a good bubble, right? Especially when it’s in wine form. Sparkling wines are becoming ever more popular and have established themselves as a core of the millennial drinking trend.
It used to be that Champagne was the thing to drink but these days, there are some others making their way to the top. Prosecco, Cava, and even Petillant-Naturel wines are what people are reaching for, not just for celebrations, but for their after dinner drinks and picnic party sips.
Long Island wineries have a key part in what New Yorkers are drinking these days and their sparkling wines are keeping up with the trends.
Sparkling Pointe uses only the Methode Champenoise to create their sparkling wines, which are the only kinds of wine they produce. In fact, they’re the only winery on Long Island who produces exclusively sparkling wines! They’ve got something for everyone from the classic Brut to the fascinating Noir de Noirs, a red sparkling wine made from 100% Pinot Noir.
The folks at Channing Daughters take a very special pride in their winemaking, which is evident in their methods. After their grapes are exclusively hand-picked, red grapes are actually stomped by foot, and the white grapes are whole cluster-pressed. They’ve recently helped with the trend of Petillant-Naturel and produce three different varieties of Pet-Nat wine, each with a different blend of grapes.
Jamesport Vineyards is a leader in the Long Island wine community, and one of the oldest vineyards in the North Fork. Among their three beautiful collections are three Petillant-Naturel wines made from Albarino, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc, which are unconventional sparkling wines.
Long Island has so much to offer in the way of wine, even in the category of bubbly. If you aren’t ready to make your way to the tasting rooms, check out your local wine shops for an LI selection!
