Lower ABV Leo Hillinger created Secco after an employee discovered she was battling breast cancer, and even today - more than 10 years later - a portion of the proceeds of his Secco sales go to breast cancer research.  It's 100% Pinot Noir given a short soak on the skins for pretty pink color. The grapes are picked early - so there's plenty of acidity - and then fermented to just one notch short of bone dry - to balance that acidity with oodles of ripe, juicy, fruit.  The fizz comes from the same method used in making Prosecco and the wine is released young, fresh, and ready to glug.

Wine Enthusiast’s previous 87 point review gives you a good feel for what to expect:  “Notes of strawberry candy rise from the glass and are dispersed on the palate by a lively, frothy fizz with large bubbles. A friendly, lemony freshness brightens the strawberry fruit. Light, dry and fruity, the body majors on easy enjoyment.”  But note that this year's model is the freshest, zestiest, and most completely yummy I've ever tried.  A perfect party and patio pink!
