Sparkling wine doesn’t stand still, and neither should you.
Light golden in color, with vibrant aromas and flavors of baked apple, white cherry and lemon meringue, Faire la Fête—meaning to create a party— encourages the celebration of lives explored with sense of discovery, simplicity, appreciation and zeal.
Faire la Fête is a Méthode Traditionelle Brut Sparkling wine from the southern French town of Limoux. It was here in Limoux, during the mid-16th Century that the traditional method was invented for producing quality sparkling wine by allowing the secondary fermentation to take place in the bottle. Pre-dating Champagne, Limoux is the “birthplace of bubbles.”
Known as a Crémant de Limoux, Faire la Fête is made exclusively from hand-harvested and whole-cluster pressed Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Chenin Blanc. The wine spends 12-months on its lees before being disgorged, creating an incredibly sophisticated sparkling wine that also has approachable and delicious aromatics and flavors.
Faire la Fête pays homage to Limoux, where for over 400 years the longest running Carnival has taken place in celebration of the transformation to spring and the beauty of sparkling wine. Each year, celebrants gather from the 42-villages within the Limoux appellation to eat, sing, and drink sparkling wine in the world’s most glorious party, or Fête.
