If it’s bubbles and baubles mom is after, a visit to Breathless Wines is in order. Sisters Sharon Cohn and Rebecca and Cynthia Faust, who have eight children and one grandchild between them, launched their label as a tribute to their mother, Martha.
Like their wine, the tasting room also sparkles. Crafted out of four shipping containers that feel more chic than industrial, the room doubles as a boutique, filled with jewelry and a collection of pretty Champagne flutes and coupes.
Surrounded by a flower garden, the patio is an attractive oasis a few blocks off Healdsburg’s town square, and a great place to sample sparkling wine from award-winning winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster. The pinot noir-based Blanc de Noirs is a treat, as is the Brut, which is served with a side of potato chips.
Details: Tastings are available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Tuesday, for $16 or up to $69, if you opt for the sabrage experience, which includes a lesson in opening a bottle of bubbly with a saber. 499 Moore Lane, Healdsburg; www.breathlesswines.com
