Schramsberg 2010 Crémant Demi-Sec
North Coast, California

Served at White House events since the time of Ronald Reagan, this unique sparkling wine offers a softer effervescence characteristic of the crémant style. Its varietal composition is mostly Flora, a hybrid of Sémillon and Gewürztraminer developed at the University of California, Davis, which gives the wine fragrant aromas and mouth-filling tropical fruit flavors.
