Chris Christensen is a self-taught, envelope-pushing vintner originally from rural Iowa. He burst onto the wine scene in 2011 with Bodkin wines, where he’s known for being the first American to make a Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc. He was recently dubbed the “Bubbles Innovator” on Wine Enthusiast’s 40 under 40 Tastemaker list, and he’s created eleven wines scored 90 points or higher by Wine Enthusiast.

Strawberries, raspberries, and black cherry; a bone dry, lightly bubbly rosé with zero added sugar. This unique rosé is 100% Zinfandel sourced from two California vineyards – 72% Gloria Smith Vineyards and 28% KLM Vineyard Ukiah, both with 100% head-trained vines ranging from 20-50 years in age. Chris believes in little guys helping little guys; the grapes are sourced from family farmers on the North Coast. It’s sparkling, aromatic, and downright quaffable.

One 250 millileter can of wine is equivalent to a third of a bottle of wine.

Pink brush strokes send a joyful, celebratory vibe that only bubbles can provide. The various hues celebrate the diverse array of wines that went into this blended rosé and are a nod to Chris’ blended background – ‘cause blending is beautiful, baby.

Any and all celebratory occasions, or a sunny day at the beach. We like sipping it alongside creamy Chevre or Brie, brunch, or with a fresh, herbaceous vegetable dish.

Whatever happened to pretty, aromatic sparkling wines? The Maker Wine project is about pushing the envelope, it’s about delivering.

The Maker sparkling rosé is dope. It has a fresh fruit, razzmatazz thing going – direct pressed, with Zinfandel coming from Lewer's High Rock Ranch Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast.
