Talking Animals, Pét-Nat is produced by an ancestral winemaking method, yielding a quirky, rustic, unfiltered sparkling wine. Its bright, refreshing characteristics and natural bubbles provide an unexpectedly pleasant surprise from winemaking's past. Made from 100% sustainably grown Grenache Blanc grapes from Mission Ranch Vineyard, this unpredictable and memorable wine is a pure expression of place and the magic of fermentation.

This wine is a new adventure for us - it’s our first attempt to pair wine with music! For this new endeavor, we’ve partnered with singer-songwriter extraordinaire LOLO, who played a sold-out Live in the Vines in 2017 at the winery. The concert was recorded, and that music is now available exclusively through Talking Animals.  The purchase of one bundle includes one song with each bottle.

We reached into our library and found a limited number of bottles of reserve, single vineyard Pinot Noir that we had stashed away for a special occasion.  We thought this is just the moment we’ve been waiting for. Striking, deep, rich, and vibrant- these words describe both Pinot Noir and Lolo’s music. Notes of luscious black cherry, raspberry, and rich, chocolatey goodness are balanced by bright acidity and beautiful notes of minerality, making this wine stand out.  The bottle age allowed the wine to integrate and mature to showcase the quality of the Mission Ranch Vineyard, where these grapes were grown.  While LOLO's voice is perfection, we hope you'll enjoy pairing her music with this unique wine.
