Ian Blackburn hosts a tasting of TWO Pét Nat Wines along with Doug Swim!

Doug Swim - Guest Educator
Expert on Natural Wines - Doug was raised in Napa, Ca where he acquired a love for wine at an early age. Jobs in wineries, restaurants and bars in Napa & San Francisco cultivated his education and passion for wine while pursuing a degree in Humanities from San Francisco State. Work and a thirst for more knowledge led him to Los Angeles where he currently resides.

Pétillant Naturel is a French term directly meaning Naturally Sparkling. If you like Champagne, venture out to the wilder side of the bubbling alternative. Pét-Nat is bottled while still undergoing its first round of fermentation which is also what the French call "Methode Ancestral". The earliest-known sparkling wines come from the area around Limoux, a town in the Pyrenees mountains of southwest France.
Pair these delicious crisp wines with a lighter fare to enhance the equation on both ends.

Donkey and Goat, Lily's Pet Nat Chardonnay, Anderson Valley, California, 2019
An aromatic explosion of orchard fruit and floral notes immediately grabs attention. With air more earthy notes, bright citrus fruit and a touch of spiciness develop. This wine is extremely gulpable, with silky texture and a touch of sweetness that is nicely supported by a backbone of acidity.

João Pato Duckman, Rosa Duck Pet Nat, Bairrada, Portugal, 2020
The Duckman wines express the true character of Bairrada’s indigenous varietals and its exceptional maritime influence. There are no indications of the region on the labels, done intentionally to demonstrate an acute sense of place and varietal typicity through minimal intervention in the cellar.  Maria Pato, the daughter of Luis Pato, created this project because of her love of the region and varietals, so much so that she felt constrained by the standards of Bairrada wine making.
