Cheers! We are pleased to offer our members this award-winning sparkling wine from Napa Valley’s esteemed Pono Wines. Crafted from 100% Pinot Noir, this lively and bubbly Blanc de Noir comes from the famed Thompson Vineyard in the Carneros-Napa Valley AVA. The Thompson family has been farming the land for more than 80 years, and the fruit is among the most desirable in the region. Pono’s 2018 Ali’i Blanc de Noir (Ali’i in Hawaiian means ‘Royalty, for the King or Queen’) offers aromas of bright strawberries, wild raspberries and cantaloupe. The vibrant and spritzy palate beautifully complements the fresh nose with its core of well-balanced lemon fruit flavors that continues to draw you in for more. Pono’s Ali’i Sparkling Wine is the perfect choice for any celebration or serendipitous event. Enjoy!
