More than five hundred acres and nearly 40 years later, he has been proven correct, as Roederer Estate continues to produce award-winning sparkling wines from their estate grown grapes, blended with reserve wines aged in oak barrels to achieve the desired balance in the traditional Louis Roederer style. These wines include Brut, Brut Rosé, L’Ermitage, and L’Ermitage Rosé, and are made of pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. They all feature fine bubbles and elegant structure, with the Brut being crisper and lighter and the L’Ermitage being creamier and more complex.
You’ll find knowledgeable and friendly staff in the bright, spacious tasting room, with its distinctive long wooden bar and windows overlooking the rolling hills and vineyards. In addition to the sparkling wines Roederer is so well known for, a light, fruity pinot noir and a rich, lightly oaky chardonnay are available for tasting and purchase in the tasting room. Tours of the winery, where visitors can learn all about the process of making sparkling wine, are available by prior arrangement.
Take your glass out onto the patio and enjoy the beautiful view overlooking the valley from the comfortable tables and chairs, shaded by umbrellas on sunny days. Bon appétit!
