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-Nats Red was the last of the three to be made. Mid-way through fermentation, I had second thoughts about putting any of the red into a bubbly. It was just so big and juicy. Tyler talked me back into it, and I stuck with the plan. It's interesting seeing the White, Orange and Red side by side. The three wines are so different and unique. This one is like raisins, dates and plums. The red is a bear, where the white is a ballerina, and the orange is just intense.
