Celebrate American Fizz!

Earlier this year I visited the Champagne
region at harvest time, and I’ve enjoyed tasting several different
Champagnes in the months since. At the same time, I explored the current
range of American fizz for my December article in Washingtonian
magazine. Just as the finest Champagnes are a complex expression of the
place, soil and time they are made, some top U.S. sparkling wine
producers are focusing on specific appellations and achieving top
quality. Which areas are top for U.S. bubbly? Think Carneros, Green
Valley, Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley – and one you probably
don’t know yet: Carter’s Mountain.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!
