Lexy's Toast Brut Nature (pronounced nah-tour...it's a French thing) is a low in sugar Sparking Wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Why did we make it? Lexy (grumble grumble) has to keep a diet low in sugar, so she started researching extra dry brut Sparkling Wines, resulting in a total obsession with Brut Nature! What does it taste like? The wine is still made in the tradition of Method Champenoise, but has been tweaked it in an avant-garde way that allows the grapes to truly speak for themselves. We have used our GlenLyon Hog Wilde Chardonnay as the liqueur d'expedition (dosage) to add intriguing exotic fruit overtones to the bubbles. As always, Lexy's Toast Wines are best served with a healthy dose of creativity! "Don't Burst My Bubble. Just Drink It!"
Who is this Lexy person? Lexy is a huge bubble enthusiast. She is also an actress and a veteran of Broadway (The Pee-wee Herman Show) and Off-Broadway (Avenue Q, Gone Missing.) You can hear her voice on many voice-overs and audio books, TV commercials, and is a skilled puppeteer, having performed in Avenue Q in NYC and on Tour for many years. Lexy also has a one woman show “BRACE YOURSELF!” (TALES OF BRACES, BROADWAY, DATING, AND DROOL) which won a SF Broadway World Award. She grew up in Sonoma on her parent's winery, and decided they must needs produce some bubbles. Everyone needs bubbles! Yes, even you.
Why is there a Puppet on the Label? The label features a caricature of Lexy and her favorite puppet, Betsy Beastly (created by Jonathan Carlucci.) Lexy’s Toast celebrates the Brighter, Bubbly Side of Life! So, Don’t Burst Besty’s Bubble! Just Drink It.
