Sappho: Brut Nature We grow our champagne-style grapes in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. They include the traditional grapes of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which are the principal grapes used in Champagne. We blend all three varietals for our signature Brut Nature. To our knowledge, we are the only vineyard-winery that has reproduced the seminal champagne grapes in Virginia to create a true French-style method champenoise sparkling wine that is bone dry and full of character. Secretly, we believe our grapes are happiest on Virginia soil, or should we call it terroir?


We had a late freeze in 2021, which affected our Chardonnay and reduced the amount available for our Brut Nature and Blanc de Blanc. Since we use only estate grown grapes, we have our fingers crossed for less variability in spring weather and greater availability of our Chardonnay-based sparkling wines in the future.
