The history of sparkling wine in France has been largely written by large Champagne houses that bought grapes in bulk from across the region, blending them in pursuit of a consistent and unchanging "house style". Farmers grew the grapes, and the houses made the wine, largely ignoring nuances in flavor as well as terroir.
In the last 15 years, farmers have wrested back control over wine making, and the result is a fantastic presentation of Champagne's chalky terroir. This collection is dedicated to the Grower Champagne movement. These are Farmer Bubbles.
