Korbel Champagne Cellars
Situated in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces the United States' most popular méthode champenoise champagne.
Premium California champagne has been Korbel Champagne Cellars' focus since the company was founded in 1882. Vineyards in the very cool Russian River Valley and other top appellations – many of which utilize sustainable farming techniques like natural soil amendments and natural pest controls – contribute delicate fruit character to the base wines, but it is Korbel's utilization of the time-honored méthode champenoise, in which secondary fermentation in the bottle is followed by extended contact on the yeast sediment, that gives Korbel California Champagne its fine, persistent bubbles and subtle complexity. Korbel California Champagne has been produced exclusively by méthode champenoise for more than 125 years.
A consistent gold medal-winner at wine competitions, Korbel California Champagne is the perfect sparkler for every kind of celebration; important celebrations like Presidential Inaugurations (it has been served at the last seven), big celebrations like weddings, small celebrations like birthdays and intimate celebrations like relaxing evenings at home for two.
In addition to champagne, Korbel Champagne Cellars also makes one of America's most respected brandies, as it has since 1889. Korbel is the only major brandy maker in the United States to maintain complete control of the production process. As a result, Korbel Brandy showcases rich character and smooth California style.
