Peace and love fellow wine-lovers. Are you ready for a far-out journey through trippy flavors, free love, joy and mind-bending enjoyment? Us too.
Once upon a time, nestled among the groovy lands of San Benito County, some righteous Wente-clone Chardonnay grapes were harvested and picked by the bright and free-spirited production team at Tank Garage Winery. For a brief history lesson: the Wente clone originated in the Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. C.H. Wente was an early pioneer of the California wine industry. His son, Ernest Wente, convinced him to bring some Chardonnay into an experimental lot using budwood from Meursault and vines from Montpellier, France and as the two sources mutated over time, they’ve now formed the genetic base for 75% of California Chardonnay. Trippy, huh?
We knew with some harmoniously classic grapes like these, and to capture the most vibrant expression of these psychedelic textures and flavors we turned to the méthode ancestrale. For anyone who might need a refresh, this is the oldest method for making sparkling wine and produces a beautiful and all-natural “pét-nat” (or pétillant naturel) by trapping carbon dioxide and fermenting itself inside the bottle with no added sugar or yeast. The gentle and silky carbonation in this bottle will have you wanting to join hands, pick flowers and graze meadows and mountainsides all day long. Hippy Sippy is truly bottled, free love, and your vibes will be at their most ultimate once you experience flavors of green apple, lemongrass and a mellow toastiness dancing on your taste buds. With delicate bubbles and medium-bright acidity, you’ll feel as though pure magic has unleashed amongst your senses. Get ready to take in the world around you like you never have before ✌️
This lively fizz pairs with so many scenarios that spread goodwill and love, not war, but is exceptional when paired with fresh raw oysters, halibut crudo, or any kind of seafood. It’s equally enchanting on its own, and the ideal, light, and easy companion for an afternoon beach excursion or a luxurious lay in the grass at the nearest park. We think you’ll be feeling all the free love and positive vibes when sippin’ on this pure alchemy. Peace out.
