In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies assumed stewardship of the
winery with the mission to produce America's first methode
champenoise sparkling wines, using the noble grapes of Pinot
Noir and Chardonnay in the classic, old-world tradition.
Each vineyard would be vinified separately to create small,
individual lots of base wine, then painstakingly selected
and handcrafted into America's artisan sparkling wines.
