Charles De Fere Moscato is a non-vintage Sparkling wine sourced from grapes grown in vineyards thru out France and produced in the Methode Ancestrale style. Methode Ancestrale is a technique to produce Sparkling wine that pre dates Champagne wines by 100 years. With Methode Ancestrale the still wine (no bubbles) is bottled before the first fermentation is complete. The wine continues to ferment inside each bottle, the CO2 from the fermentation can’t escape, causing bubbles to form in the wine. It produces a softer, sweeter, lower alcohol Sparkling wine than the Champagne or Traditional Method. Charles De Fere is one of Boisset Family Estates, which include DeLoach Vineyards, Raymond Vineyards and Buena Vista Winery a well as French, Italian and Canadian wines. No sugar was added in the making of this Bubbly and it is a fairly low production Sparkling wine (3,000) cases and should be found for under $10. The alcohol content is a low 7.5%.
