La Garagista Ci Confonder, enchanting Pet Nat Rose from Vermont
(Chi•con•fond•ay) It confounds us. Surprises. Dumbfounds. Slays. Bedazzles. Staggers. Shakes. We’re feeling a bit bedazzled by petillant naturel, an old-style first fermentation in bottle. Our Ci Confonde Rosé is bottled shortly after harvest, and left to finish its frothy alchemy under the cap, creating a fine bead of pearly effervescence. Hand-harvested and unfiltered, this alpine sparkling hails from our vineyards in the northern climate of Vermont.
