These wines were created using fruit harvested from the Lake Chelan AVA and finished using the traditional Methode Champenoise. They were aged on tirage for 3 years and possess great complexity and sophistication while being very distinct styles. The champagne wines are a continued testimony to all of the extraordinary and diverse wine styles Ray Sandidge has skillfully produced though his years as one of Washington States’ premier winemakers.
