When it comes to Napa Valley, the first thought that comes to mind is likely wineries with serious Cabernet Sauvignon. But, did you know that this valley also has a bubbly side? Yes, indeed. Napa Valley is also home to some really incredible sparkling wine houses. Technically not called Champagne unless it is produced (and grown) in the Champagne region of France, Napa Valley sparkling wine features a wide range of styles and some sparkling fun options!


Chandon was the first winery established in the United States by a French wine producer, Moët Hennessy, and produced its first vintage in 1976. Known for sparkling wine, Chandon offers a vast array of bubbles in Brut and Demi-sec styles, as well as Blanc de Blanc, Blanc de Noir, Rosé, plus a fun Garden Spritz. Chandon also offers a few still wine selections, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Visit the winery for a range of traditional to adventurous tastings, or upgrade to a culinary tasting menu, or book a garden cabana with a group of friends.


Domaine Carneros

Domaine Carneros, founded in 1987, is a winery best known for sparkling wine produced in the Méthode Traditionnelle – the traditional French method – whereby the wine undergoes a second fermentation process in the bottle to produce carbon dioxide, which gives the wine its bubbles. The picturesque château at Domaine Carneros, perched up on a vineyard hilltop, is unmistakable and iconic. Take a walk up the grand staircase and enjoy a tasting either on the patio overlooking the scenic rolling hills of Carneros or inside the marble-floored chateau. Several styles of sparkling wine are offered in a flight of bubbles. Or choose a still wine flight of Pinot Noir. Or combine still and sparkling options in a single flight. Elevate your experience with a food and wine pairing, held in the Jardin d'Hiver glass house.
