Ancestrale is a part of our “50” Series, created in honor and celebration of our 50th vintage. The “50” Series includes our best and most unique wines that epitomize the progress and accomplishment we have made in our first 5 decades of tending vines and making wines in the Lake Erie AVA and set the bar for our next 50. Traminette, a child of Gewürztraminer, is one of the most successful French Hybrid varieties grown in the Lake Erie Region and has a spicy, fruity character that is perfect for a Pét-Nat style sparkling wine. Honoring the deep roots that both Traminette and Presque Isle Wine Cellars have in the region, this wine is made in the centuries-old Méthode Ancestrale fashion that uses natural yeast and produces a rustic sparkling wine with each bottle having its own personality. Ancestrale is a delicious and bold expression of Traminette’s clean and bright varietal character.
Serve very well-chilled for your own celebration of the goodness of life with family and friends.
