From the winery – “At Bella the underlying philosophy is to produce sparkling wines of exceptional quality. Our vineyard series program is made in the traditional method which is two fermentations. The first fermentation is feral (wild and without the addition of nutrients or enzymes) and ferments dry in tank located on our property. The second fermentation is in bottle: we are careful to take the primary fermented-dry juice to another facility, off-site, and there we add the sugar and yeast to the juice prior to bottling for the second fermentation. No commercial yeast is used on our property. The wine is not filtered. The wines will spend approximately six to eight months on lees after which the majority of our vineyard series is either hand riddled or machine riddled and machine disgorged. All the wines are finished brut natural in style, with no dosage added. Bella exclusively produces single vineyard, single varietal sparkling wines as we believe each vineyard has a different personality that comes through in the grapes produced. We intentionally do not provide tasting notes as, just like when two people meet, what you pick up from someones personality may be different from what we pick up.”
Bella produces some of the most interesting wines in the Okanagan Valley. Lively with clear varietal character, this refreshing sparkling Rosé impresses with zesty notes of wild strawberries, white peaches, and sweet watermelon.
