California champagne goes organic
Korbel Chapagne Cellars from Sonoma Valley in California has introduced the first California Brut Champagne made entirely with organically grown grapes, according to a press release issued today. It will be available to consumers beginning next month with a suggested retail price of $15.99 a bottle.
The grapes used to make the new Korbel California Brut Champagne have been produced according to the USDA organic certification requirements as the fruit is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Like all Korbel California champagnes, the new Korbel Brut with organically grown grapes is made according to the traditional methode champenoise technique where secondary fermentation takes place inside the bottle which results in perfect pinpoint bubbles.
