Description

Our inaugural vintage of Fesstivity’s “Anniversary Cuvée” was released in honor of the Fess Parker Winery’s 30th anniversary. This was a milestone we felt especially proud of as a family owned and operated business.

The Anniversary Cuvée is a special wine that’s made using Méthode Champenoise techniques and bottle aged en tirage for an extended period of time. It represents our commitment to making the best wines that we possibly can, year after year.

While every anniversary might not be as noteworthy as a 30th, we’ve continued to make a very limited amount of this wine each vintage as a way of commemorating the time that has passed and the opportunity we’ve had to continue doing what we love as a family.

Cheers to whatever anniversary you may be celebrating! 

Wine Critic Reviews
"There are just over 500 magnums of the 2016 Anniversary Cuvee produced, and it's based on 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir that was aged 9 months in neutral barrels and in tirage for three years. Its medium gold-hue gives way to a subtle yet incredibly classy bouquet of stone fruits, honeyed flowers, brioche, and subtle yeasty nuances. Beautiful on the palate, it's a richer, medium-bodied sparkler that has a fine mousse, plenty of mid-palate flesh, and a great finish. It's one impressive sparkling wine that will certainly compete with any number of Champagnes out there." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "The 2016 Anniversary Cuvee offers good brightness and energy, with hints of apricot, white flowers and lemon confit that open nicely. This stylish sparkler is a fine choice for drinking now and over the next few years..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
