|We take pride in elevating orthodox standards to the next level in our sparkling production. To accomplish this goal our process for sparkling wines follows particular procedures stemming from traditional French law but adapted and modernized by our sparkling winemaker Michel Salgues. In addition, we have all the necessary equipment in house and control the process fully: from grape, through tirage and finally to release. According to French law, Champagne Houses in France must use the first 150 of the 180 gallons of juice extracted from each ton.||Caraccioli Cellars raises the bar on this regulation further as we only use the first 120 gallons per ton. This provides the best ‘heart’ juice from each grape and allows for our wines to shine in thier purity.
Each secondary fermantation lasts nearly four years, with a addional year of aging on the cork for a proper marriage between the cuvee and dosage. Our processes are constantly being perfected by Salgues ensuring that Caraccioli sparkling wines are smooth and cultivated.
