The secret of sparkling wines is the use of grapes that have a pronounced acidity, which is why Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay are preferred both "at home" in Champagne and in the rest of the world. In Romania, a local grape with similar potential is Cramposia, from which promising sparkling wines have already been produced. The most recent successful example of this is Avincis, where Cramposia meets the grape symbol of French sparkling wines – Pinot Noir.

Avincis sparkling wine pairs perfectly with friends

The result is an elegant wine, with lively notes of white flowers and freshly mown grass, to which are added classic pastry notes (toast, muffins), made more pronounced by the producer’s decision to leave the wine unfiltered. So, if you see small suspended particles that slightly cloud the wine, don’t panic, it’s just the yeast that produced the bubbles!
Like any sparkling wine, it goes perfectly with holidays and with the right person!

The bubbles in sparkling wine represent the carbon dioxide resulting from alcoholic fermentation

Sparkling wine production by the traditional method reveals the mastery of Nature, rather than the oenologist’s performance. In every bottle an exception could happen, every bottle is unique and that’s why the sparkling wines obtained by the Traditional method are sometimes considered more valuable than those obtained quickly, controlled, technically flawless, and perfect.
