Quake and Dave drink canned wine, actually not just any can of wine, but Underwood Oregon Bubbly In A Can, “The Bubbles”. The grapes come from 78% Willamette Valley and 22% Applegate Valley of Oregon. I imagine you have heard of the Willamette Valley, but the Applegate Valley is located inside the Rogue Valley AVA of southern Oregon (Willamette is the northern most AVA of Oregon). The blend is 40% Pinot Gris, 32% Pinot Noir, and 28% Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape, when one is produced in the French style its “Gris” and in the Italian style its “Grigio”. When Bubbly is produced in the Traditional Method, such as Champagne is, the 2nd fermentation occurs in each and every bottle of wine. Since this is a can of Sparkling wine and a can and a bottle are 2 very different containers, The Bubbles is produced in the Charmat Method, the same production technique as Prosecco. This is a vintage dated Bubbly, 2018, you will not see it printed on the can. With canned wine the label needs to preprinted on the can and to get the best price on the cans Underwood buys them preprinted in bulk, so you need to check their website to find the current vintage. So, this is a rather unique take on Bubbly, Oregon, Pinot Gris, and a 12 oz can, so tune into Quake and Dave and find out what they think!
