We have maintained a time honoured tradition by naming our sparkling wines after the widow and matriarch of the family. Named after Catharine Smith, Henry (Smith) of Pelham's wife, Cuvee Catharine is a hand-picked, bottle fermented sparkling wine that sees lengthy aging.

The unique characteristics of each vineyard are transported directly to the palate of the wine taster with Pinot Noir better than with any other grape. It is therefore a kind of natural GPS that gives this variety its telltale qualities, unique and telling with every vineyard site. We believe that the resulting wine is a wonderful example of that our corner of the world can do with this touchstone grape variety.
