  • STORY

    Have you tried this 'ancient' style of sparkling wine? Pétillant Naturel is simply French for 'naturally sparkling,' and that's essentially what it is! 'Pét-Nat,' for short, is the OG way to make bubbles and what evolved into the champagne you drink today. Its discovery was accidental, known as Méthode Ancestrale; it was first documented sometime in 1531 by monks in Limoux, Southern France.

  • TASTING NOTES

    Thunder daze is our most sophisticated pleasure, a luxurious overachiever if you will. Lipstick and an Aston Martin. If Bond drank Pét-Nat, this would be it. A frothy tropical paradise, with sourdough brioche and orchard apples gone seductively wild. Chic and not afraid to speak its mind. Cidery pears with peaches and cream push a mineral end for a lingering finish.
