Bar Takeover - The Pet Nat Party!

Join the party! We'll have winemakers from Early Mountain Vineyard, Old Westminster Winery, and Quartzwood Farm pouring nothing but delicious pet nats all evening! This is a three-for-one Bar Takeover! Every time a pet nat pops an angel gets its wings, right?

Old Westminster Winery (Westminster, MD) has been instrumental in popularizing the pet nat style, particularly on the East Coast. They have been working with a number of different varietals for this wine style, and continue to break ground in terms of revitalizing older, less conventional winemaking techniques. Their wines are not readily available in this area and we are pumped to have them!

Quartzwood Farm (Lovettsville, VA) is the project of Ben Sedlins and Sarah Searle. Ben has been working in winegrowing in Northern Virginia for years, and is (you may have already gathered) the Vineyard Manager for WFW. This Quartzwood bottling is the inaugural release of their pet nat, produced in teeny quantities and destined to last a scant weeks before selling out.

Early Mountain Vineyard (Madison, VA) is doing a lot of things right, of note their hiring of viticulturist Maya Hood-White, who started their pet nat program a few years ago, producing sparkling wines from oddballs like blaufrankish, syrah, and malvasia . Maya's work with Early Mountain pet nats has been instrumental in the WFW Plateau bottling. We wouldn't been making it without her inspiration, and are excited to have her back pouring the new vintages.
