Pet Nat, short for pétillant naturel, can be made from any grape variety (this one is Chardonnay) and is a simpler and ancient way to make sparkling wine. In its purest form, as ours is, the ingredients are limited to grapes (with no Sulphur added). After spontaneous fermentation begins, but before it is complete, the wine is bottled and fermentation continues, creating those delicious bubbles. Jared made our first Lily's in 2011 and ten years later it remains our go-to wine for brunch, lunch, picnics and beach days. This wine will please many palates and is made for al fresco dining, preferably with your shoes off.

Tasting Note: This wine immediately calls to mind the summer delight of frozen lemonade creamsicles! The palate is awakened with tiny fine bubbles, the citrus profile playfully contrasted by hints of creamy vanilla and subtly herbaceous chamomile, honeysuckle and white tea. With beautiful dimensionality and aromas of sweet brioche that shout SUNDAY BRUNCH, this vivacious wine is easy to love. But make no mistake, this Sparkling Chardonnay makes her French ancestors smile with pride. She stands up to classy dinners, backyard shindigs and matrimonial celebrations. Every day is a Lily’s day. Pair with eggs, caviar, brunch, fried chicken, or a sunlit garden!
