ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
Under the Wire is a project grown from a mutual friendship and love for wines with bubbles. Our simple, yet unique premise is to make California sparkling wines based on an individual vineyard in an individual year. Inspired in part by the grower Champagne movement we aim to prove that California can produce unique, delicious and terroir-driven sparkling wine. We hope these wines capture your imagination!

ABOUT THE VINEYARDS: 
High above the Salinas Valley in the shadow of the Pinnacles National Park, the Brosseau vineyard lies in the remote Chalone AVA. Despite the lack of neighbors, Brosseau grows some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the state. Owned and founded by Jan and Jon Brosseau and organically farmed by their son Bill, the vineyard epitomizes the saying ‘beautiful vineyard, beautiful wine’. The vineyard is planted on a super sexy mix of limestone and granite in perpetual decomposition, as if the Cote d'Or married Beaujolais. A labor of love since 1980 the property has been developed into an amazing ranch; one at which we love to stay the night before picks to catch a killer sunrise as grapes are harvested under lights.

Brosseau has a special place for us as it was the first vineyard we worked with for our sparkling journey. Our foundling idea started after tasting the still wines that Bedrock Wine Co. made in 2009 and 2010 from the vineyard. Realizing the incredible flavor development at low sugars and low pH we thought it could be an excellent place for sparkling wine. The first wines produced from the vineyard are staggering, showing off the limestone and granite minerality and a savory umami character that is Brosseau's signature.
