Napa and Sonoma Sights

Schramsberg

Updated 05/01/2014

Fodor's Review

Founded in 1865, Schramsberg produces bubblies made using the traditional méthode champenoise. To taste, you first must tour, but what a tour: in addition to glimpsing the winery's historic architecture, you see the underground cellars dug in the late 19th century by Chinese laborers. A mind-boggling 2 million–plus bottles are stacked in gravity-defying configurations. The tour includes generous pours of very different sparkling wines. To learn more about them, consider the three-day Camp Schramsberg. Fall participants harvest grapes and explore food-and-wine pairing, riddling (the process of turning the bottles every few days to nudge the sediment into the neck of the bottle), and other topics. In spring the focus is on blending sparklers.
