Winemaking Notes: The fruit was manually harvested from the Ellison Estate Vineyard in Grand Isle, Vermont. Both varieties underwent whole-cluster semi-carbonic fermentation before being foot crushed. They were both fermented and aged in demijohn with native yeast. In the late winter/early spring of 2020, the varieties were blended and organic maple syrup was added to the still base wine to start a second alcoholic fermentation. The wine was bottled to finish under cap as a traditional method sparkling wine. There were no addition of sulfites or any other substance (just grapes and maple syrup). The wine was bottled without fining or filtering.
