To make wine is to make a pledge with the earth, to accept that at best we may briefly align with all that nature endows and capture a moment, as nature moves unconcerned.


Pata and David began making sparkling rosé in 2012 in Napa Valley. As an African-American, female owner and operator, Pata continues to make new inroads in the wine industry and help expand its story. Six harvests from the first production, apprenticeships in Tuscany, studies in France, four children - Pata, David, and Sapere are constantly trying to evolve and refine a new definition of elegance.

Our wine begins on the northern coast of California, where fog and sloped sun feed into early harvested fruit - which we blend mixing classic Champagne traditions with new California ideology to make a distinctly Sapere sparkling. Paying attention to the delicacy and biodiversity of the environment as much as the subtlety and pop of the bubbles. We pride ourselves on minimal intervention, in the vineyards and the cantina. Our
signature sparkling is a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, no added chemicals or sulphites, no residual sugar. Always vegan.
