North Coast, California

Served at White House events from the time of Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama, this unique sparkling wine is made in both a crémant (creamy) and demi-sec (half-dry) style. Its varietal composition is mostly Flora, a hybrid of Sémillon and Gewürztraminer developed at nearby UC Davis, which gives the wine fragrant aromas and mouth-filling tropical fruit flavors.
