Tagaris Winery to Release First Sparkling Wines


The Tagaris Winery Sparking Wines will host a soft release on April 17th, 2022.

[Richland, WA. Monday, April 4, 2022]- On Easter Sunday, April 17th, Tagaris Winery will be doing a soft release of their first ever sparkling wines. A 2021 Blanc de Blanc, 2021 Blanc de Noir and a 2021 Sparkling Rose, all sourced from their estate Arete Vineyard located in Columbia Valley AVA.

These wines are handcrafted in the traditional method, also called Méthode Traditionelle. “We decided to use this process because we felt the best way to showcase sparkling wine was to do it all by hand, every step of the way,” said Frank Roth, Winemaker of Tagaris Winery. “It is extremely time consuming and takes many hours to complete the process. The process is 10 times more labor intensive than traditional wine making. It takes one hour to disgorge, top off and cap only 30 bottles.”

“Washington grapes naturally have desirable attributes to create a sparkling wine rivaling any great French Champagne or California Sparkling Wine,” Roth says. “The chemistry just made sense to start exploring, researching and testing the production of a world-class wine from locally grown estate fruit. The Tagaris Winery Sparkling Wines will be a big, big wine for an already well-established brand,” he added.

The wines will be available for a soft release for Easter Brunch on April 17th, where tasting flights, mixed drinks and futures can be purchased for these wines. Futures can be purchased in Taverna Tagaris or online at www.tagariswines.com. The 3 sparkling wines will release to the public on Mother’s Day Sunday in the restaurant.

Tagaris Winery was founded in 1987 and has always sourced 100% of the fruit from their own estate vineyards. Their most sought-after vineyards are Arete, King Fuji and King Organics, which total around 2500 acres and over 27 different varietals.
