Pét-Nat Party

  • The Cheese Shop of Salem (map)


Nothing says August like Pét-Nat. The Ancestral Method (a technique in making sparkling wine) is used to make most pét-nat (pétillant-naturel), or slightly sparkling glou-glou (glug-glug) juice, as we like to call it. Pét-nats can be identified by the crown cap which tops the bottle of this fizzy juice, which is used instead of a cork because the wine is not disgorged, and has no added dosage or sugar addition, after the first fermentation process. These semi-sparklers undergo a secondary fermentation in bottle. They are meant to be enjoyed young, wearing linen, on a porch, in the sun, or in a warm rainstorm when you’re camping and you need a pét-nat pick-me up. Pét-nats bring smiles, and hope, and fun, and they always bring the party. Come party with a pét-nat! Pét-nat Party Picks here!
