Ancestrale is a celebration of our 50th vintage, joining Saudade and Härbinger as the third wine in our 50th Anniversary Series. Riesling was one of the first classic European varieties successfully grown in the Lake Erie Region and our 2019 Riesling grapes had a character that was perfect for a Pét-Nat style sparkling wine. Honoring the deep roots that both Riesling and Presque Isle Wine Cellars have in the region, this wine is made in the centuries-old Méthode Ancestrale fashion that produces a rustic sparkling wine with a direct expression of Riesling’s clean, fruity varietal character with each bottle having its own personality.
Serve very well-chilled for your own celebration of the goodness of life with family and friends.
