Ep 091 – Breathless Wines

This week we are talking about our recent trip to the tasting room at Breathless wines in Healdsburg which is in Sonoma County


Breathless wines was started by three sisters and focuses on making high quality sparkling wines using Méthode Champenoise. We visited their tasting room and got an opportunity to chat with Sharon Cohn one of the founders.


We really enjoyed our time at Breathless and we think it’s worth a visit if you are in the area. We had the opportunity to taste four of their wines at the winery and below is one of our favorites.


Breathless Wines Brut NV – priced around $25.  With an almost rose color this wine smelled like baked apples and toast. It has flavors of citrus, pink grapefruit (got some bitterness) and apple with a pleasant finish that lingers.
We thought this wine was light, refreshing, crisp, with a hint of tartness, it’s not over the top and great with food or on it’s own.



We’re coming up to our 100th episode and to celebrate, we want to make you part of the show!
