a               
approach to winemaking

"pét project is about creating wines that are painstakingly simple and as complex as possible using only one ingredient - organically

farmed grapes"

- winemaker, Jay Anderson

 
 

"you can't leave 

I heard this phrase in culinary school. I took it to mean that simple isn’t always easy, it still requires attention to detail and respect for the ingredients and the consumer. Many chefs I worked under made a point to search out local, and specifically organic products whenever they were available, taking care to showcase quality, freshness, and seasonality. Preserving the integrity of the ingredient is true simplicity. This concept is fundamental to my winemaking process. It just makes sense to grow and source our main ingredient from vineyards using responsible, organic farming practices.

pét project is focused on creating natural sparkling wines using both traditional and non-traditional methods. Founded on the Ancestral Method, often called pétillant-naturel (naturally sparkling) or pét-nat for short, pét project also crafts piquettes, and other effervescent wines that capture the freshness and liveliness of fermentation. 

Sourcing solely from certified organic vineyards in Washington State, our grapes are farmed without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. Each wine is fermented naturally using indigenous yeast and contains only naturally occurring sulfites. Our goal is to create wines that are honest and simple- a true representation of fruit and site.

organic grapes only.

Zero additives. Because we only use one ingredient, we want to make sure it's the best, without the unknowns that come along with chemical inputs.

never fined or filtered.

Fining and filtering can remove the good stuff that gives wine complexity and texture. That's why we don't filter or use fining agents. 

no added sulfites.

While sulfur can be an important part of age-worthy still wines it is not needed in the production of pét-nats.  All our wines contain only naturally occurring sulfites.

always changing.

Experimentation keeps things interesting. Our lineup is different every year, growing with new varieties, styles, and techniques.
