For those who were unable to attend, we hope to see you in July at The 2300 Club!

TREVERI BLANC DE BLANC 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine crafted in the traditional method. Toasty, floral pear and spice flavors framed by a lively and fresh acidity. Treveri produces a remarkable set of sparkling wines from Washington’s classic and lesser-known varietals. All wines are hand-crafted in the traditional Methode Champenoise, with a secondary fermentation and conditioning occurring in each and every bottle.

Just three years since opening the doors, Treveri has been featured by the James Beard Foundation, served at the White House, and in the most recent months was recognized with a collection of 90+ reviews in Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast.
