The Pét-Nats are our first wines in a collaboration series.

The collaborative effort between Traynor Family Vineyards and The Courage Bar demonstrates the unique spirit of the County. It is evidence that by the willingness to experiment and to allow space for new ideas and approaches, and to celebrate and reward the hard work it takes to help all those things materialize, that The County is one of the most exciting wine regions in the world today. Trifecta celebrates both an ancient technique as well as the desire to innovate and play.

The Trifecta series is comprised of a white, an orange and a red wine and are made with much care, enthusiasm and love for experimentation.

Pét-Nat (Petillant Naturale) is perhaps the oldest method of making sparkling wines. With method Traditional (think Champagne) you take an aged still wine, inoculate it with yeast and sugar, bottle it, it ferments, ages, gets disgorged, dosage (filling the bottle back up again), and capped. But Pét-Nat, it is much less complicated, much less intervention in the wine, much more natural. Towards the end of primary fermentation (let's say 2% sugars remaining in the juice), the wine gets bottled... and that's it. What is left is probably the freshest, most fun wine you have had.

The Pét-Nat Orange is a delicious bubbly, full of field berries (strawberry maybe?) and sour cherry. It tastes like a really light, young, bubbly Pinot Noir, but it's not. It's made from Frontenac Gris, a wine that is usually harvested and pressed off its skins immediately and made into a white wine. We whole cluster fermented it, extracted a ton of fruit and some colour (not much in the skins) and some tannin, pressed it and bottled right away with some sugar left in the wine.

It is yummy.
