“Nobile” – perhaps the description from which Nebbiolo originated. And what more noble role than the ultimate celebratory wine, one with petite bubbles, effervescence in body and character, and a lovely, delicate color? Introducing the sixth entry to the Palmina Nebbiolo family – a sparkling version that hails from the Nebbiolo grown for Palmina at Rancho Sisquoc in the Santa Maria Valley. For those of you who know the history of Steve and Brewer-Clifton, you'll remember that he and Greg first started that winery making sparkling wine.
Sparkling wines are delightful for celebrations, but they are also a perfect companion to many a meal — we recommend adding bubbles to your pairing selections!
Sisquoc Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley

The 2011 Lumina is the third vintage of this unique sparkling wine made from Nebbiolo in the traditional "methode champenoise." The grapes were grown for Palmina at the Rancho
Sisquoc vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley and picked earlier than grapes for Palmina’s still wines to retain the natural acidity of the grape and still showcase the spice and fruit profile of the varietal.
For those of you who know the history of Steve and Brewer-Clifton, you'll remember that he and Greg first started that winery making sparkling wine.
Lumina is delightful for celebrations, but it is also the perfect pairing for the table. We hope you enjoy the special wine with friends and family this holiday season.
