• Bodkin Blanc de Sauvignon Blanc Sparkling Wine

Lake County fruit from the Sandy Bend Vineyard Site. This was a drier version than last years which tended sweeter. Light and bright style to this sparkling wine with citrus, tropical fruit and mineral on a clean and focused palate, decidedly higher acid, sparkling sauvignon blanc. D&M Tasting Notes

America's First Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc! This unique and stylish twist on Sauvignon Blanc has a core of racy crispness driven by lively acidity, accented with lemon-lime aromas and citrus-passion fruit flavors. The pronounced citrus tones team with a note of toasted hazelnuts to accent the plush mouthfeel of the wine. Great for celebrating or everyday joy! Winery Notes

Originally from Iowa, Christensen is inspired by the Shakespeare phrase, “We few, we happy few.” He purports to make America’s first sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, in addition to Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and other grapes from across Lake, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. Bodkin is named for a type of arrowhead used by peasant Englishmen against armored French in the Hundred Years’ War. “Anytime you get to stick it to the French in this business, you have to,” he says. The wines are low in alcohol, high in acidity, limited in oak and meant to be approachable and easy drinking. Christensen also started a coaching business to help clients learn winemaking philosophy and process by, as he says, “explaining the whys, as opposed to telling them what to do.”
