Ballatore Gran Spumante

Spirito Ballatore, the winemaker behind this incredible sparkler, has won hundreds of awards for his well-priced sparkling wine, since he introduced it in 1984.

It’s not completely dry, but it’s not sweet either. Most of us say we like “dry” wine, but we really prefer a little sweetness to round out the flavors. We just think “dry” is more sophisticated. Get over it. Try this low-risk, high-reward sparkler.

Ballatore Spumante was introduced in 1984.
Since that time, Ballatore has consistently
been awarded top honors in some of the
nation’s most prestigious competitions. To
date, Ballatore Spumante holds over 250

The winemaker, Spir Ballatore, styled this
delightful sparkling wine in a manner similar to Spumantes from the Asti region of Italy, with a proprietary blend of specially selected California grapes.

The delicate freshness of Ballatore makes it a most charming sparkling wine. Inviting aromas reminiscent of ripe peaches and apricots combine to form a delightfully complex bouquet. Well-balanced and rich in
varietal character, this sparkling wine refreshes with melony flavors and a crisp, clean finish.

While traditionally enjoyed with desserts, Ballatore is an elegant and festive companion to any occasion.
