1. 2012 California Classic Sparkling Wine by Hammersky
Hammersky offers both a classic brut and a demisec sparkling wine.
The “HammerSky Classic” is a demisec, great for pairing with fruit and cheeses as a lighter dessert after dinner, bright and effervescent with a touch of residual sugar on the ending notes
The “Naughty Princess: Detained” is more of a traditional brut style; while not as dry as a French champagne, it has a much crisper mouth-feel, and hints of apple to pair perfectly with with any celebration and meal, including your event or party for tonight!
Opolo’s sparkling wine is refreshing, light golden in color and full of flavor with pronounced ribbons of bubbles. The palate holds effervescent notes of peach and apple that lead to a delightful finish. The sparkling is perfect for an afternoon poolside or the enjoyment of your finest celebrations under the fireworks in Paso Robles!
Always seductive, this Moscato treats the taster with aromas and flavors of melons and peaches, and offers a floral and citrus like bouquet. Generally served chilled, this delightful wine is slightly sweet with a touch of sparkle in the glass and compliments fresh fruit, cheesecake and appetizers for that perfect party.

A sparkling mix with a bubbly essential oil zing of Pomegranate and a refreshing finish that can be tasted alone or mixed with your favorite juice or nectar to make the perfect cocktail!
The peach version of this sparkling wine is just the right amount of sweet and smooth offering a hint of peach flavor and a light finish that pairs well with both desserts and savory tropical dishes with fish or chicken. Use it to toast tonight or mix it with orange juice in the morning for that perfect mimosa!
