A producer of Charles Heinz Vineyard still Pinot Noir and California Champagne-method sparkling wine made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. All sparkling wines are bottled, riddled and disgorged by hand. The sparkling wine has become a cult wine that is hard to find and is only sold to mailing list members by allocation.

The wines are made by SF Chronicle's 2016 Winemaker of the Year, Michael Cruse. The first release was in December 2014. About 300 cases were made in the first vintage at Cruse's Petaluma winery where he crafts several other varietals under the Cruse Wine Co. label.
