June 22: Pop the Cork on our New Vintage of Auguri!

We are happy to announce that the latest vintage of our dry sparkling wine Auguri is ready to release.  Made in the classic “zero dosage” or zero residual sugar style and inspired by Prosecco Superiore made in the Lake Garda region in Northern Italy, this is traditionally made in the bottle secondary fermentation which creates a bracing lip-smacking acidity and freshness yet is rather full bodied.
