If you’re interested in wine at all, you may have heard of the recent surge in interest and popularity of “Pet Nat” — pétillant natural wine, naturally carbonated in the bottle, similar to bottle-conditioned beers.
Personally, I love these wines, and I *really* love that my friends are involved in making it and importing it.
This Saturday, we’re going to be showcasing 3 Pet Nat wines that our friends have either produce or procured, with all three being available by the glass for just $8/glass all day and night.
We’ll be pouring:
Los Pilares “BLACK PET NAT” (San Diego) 2014 – sparkling red wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, the latest release from our low-intervention winemaker friends from San Diego. We put together the “San Diego Special” La Posta #8 carne asada concoction as the pairing for this wine, I guarantee that it is the perfect match.
Los Pilares “LA DONA” (San Diego) 2014 – sparkling white wine made from Muscat grapes. Last year’s inaugural vintage of this wine was a favorite at my local wine shop, and made Jon Bonné’s best 100 west coast wines list as well.
Les Capriades “PET-SEC” (Loire, France) sparkling white wine made from Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. This is one of the French wines that got everyone excited about Pet Nat to begin with, and it was chosen and imported by our friend Cory Cartwright at Selection Massale.
Together, these three wines give a broad and delicious taste of some of the joys of Pet Nat. We hope you can come on Saturday and enjoy them. We’ll be pouring them by the glass ($8 each) from 11:30am until we close at 9:00pm. Salud!
