2014 LA FANTASIA (The Fantasy)
Stainless Steel tank-aged, carbonated from natural yeast fermentation
2014 LA FANTASIA (The Fantasy)
An Italian style soft sparkling wine which is lower in alcohol, naturally sweet and refreshing with bright aromas of cherry, exotic flowers and wild berries. Darker in color than most rose-style wines, this is loaded with flavor and has more structure. It is absolutely packed with black raspberry, plum and strawberry flavors in the mouth and ample sweetness which leads to a creamy, round finish.
Food Pairing Notes
The lingering fresh fruit flavors go well with tangy fruit and cheese platters as well as rich desserts. Perfect for special occasions or just sipping on a warm summer evening.

A fun, refreshing lightly sweet wine -- perfect for informal parties. Great on ice! And the screw top bottle makes it perfect for picnics and summer concerts in the park.

I tried this wine downstairs in the tasting room of the winery last week during our visit, and had my 5 tastings. Since I do not like reds, I did not choose this wine. The connoisseur said I must try it, since it is their best selling.... and I LOVED it! I ended up buying a bottle to take home, which was a challenge to fit into my checked baggage, but SO worth it! I would highly recommend this wine to anyone who likes sweet wine/dessert wines (Moscato is my favorite). I can't wait for a special occasion to open the bottle I brought home to MN.

We just received this in our first shipment and loved it. We will be ordering a couple more bottles.

I've never liked a red wine till I had fantasia! I went to the tasting, tried it, loved it, bought two bottles to bring home, shipped six more and now am ordering 12 more, I absolutely look forward to this wine when I get home from work! Thank you!!

My daughter and I tried this wine at a tasting. We loved it and bought a bottle. It will not make it home as we have. Polished off the bottle. Will buy more in the future.

I didn't think I liked wine. Our realtor gave us this bottle as a house warming gift. Turns out, I *DO* like wine... THIS wine! Definitely will be buying more

BEST WINE I have ever had. It does not even compare to other wines I've tried in the Napa area. I posted about it on my blog I love it so much. Check out "If Wine Were a Movie" on www.1757blog.Wordpress.com! http://1757blog.wordpress.com/2013/08/07/if-wine-were-a-movie-moulin-rouge/

I absolutely love this Rose! Tried it first in the tasting room and enjoyed it immensely. We bought 3 bottles to take home. Now just purchased 6 more. This is a wonderful wine for our hot summers and parties. Enjoy!

My wife and I just did the guided castle tour and sampled this wine. We favor sweet, white wines. After drinking this wine, we immediately bought a case.

My friend served 3 bottles of this wine for her wedding toast just this past weekend. Everyone loved it. I will be ordering 2 bottles just because I love it. And I don't normally drink wine!

I absolutely LOVE Fantasia! I felt I was always missing out when my immediate family had a glass of wine because I could not acquire a taste for it no matter how hard I tried. This was a pleasant surprise to sample in your tasting room and I now enjoy it immensely! Thank you so much for the delightful experience each time I partake.

Like mostly everyone else, I am not a wine person. I enjoy a light Moscato, but reds are not my thing. My friend went to a tasting at the winery and brought home a bottle of this wine and insisted I try it. We popped it open and finished the bottle that night. This wine is absolutely AMAZING. I plan on buying a case and giving them away and Christmas gifts. If you don't like wine, you obviously haven't tried La Fantasia. I promise you, you will enjoy it!!

Visited California and my sisters and I just had to visit Napa. I love sweet reds and did research to see which wineries sold them. I tasted many wines during the tasting and was so pleased with La Fantasia. I ordered three bottles to take back to Chicago. In fact, my sisters bought a bottle as well. The cashier was helpful in showing us how to wrap using the wine skins for protection during thee flight. I'm taking my time drinking them so they can last. I'm sure I'll be purchasing this one of a kind red many more times in the future.

If there were a 10 rating, I would give it a 10!!! We are not much for wine drinkers, but want to be. We toured the winery and loved every part of it, especially the wine tasting at the end when we found this excellent light and fruity La Fantasia. Going to order many more!
(Mar 12, 2014 at 12:25 AM)
The perfect wine on a warm day or night! Appeals to all palettes
(Mar 20, 2014 at 6:26 PM)
I love this wine..... I want to get into the wine scene since I live in Napa and that's basically all there is to do. I've tried a few different wines but wasn't impressed. I went to a get together and of course being the Napans we are there was wine. One being La Fantasia.... it was AMAZING!! The main thing I don't like is the alcohol aftertaste which this wine doesn't have!! Basically I LOVE it!!!
(Apr 8, 2014 at 12:41 PM)
So yummy hard to tell there was any Alcohol
(Apr 9, 2014 at 5:59 AM)
I dream about this wine!
(May 25, 2014 at 3:23 PM)
A complete must-have. I cannot rave enough about how good this wine is. I live 2 hours away and make special trips just to get myself a couple bottles. Worth every penny.
(Jun 10, 2014 at 4:02 PM)
I love my whites..so when the connoisseur insisted I try their best selling red wine , I gave in. I loveeddd it so much that out of the 5 wine tasting sample I asked for Fantasia thrice!!! Now I am a red wine convert.
(Jul 25, 2014 at 10:01 AM)
Wasn't a big fan of wine until I tried this wine. Love It!!!!!!!!!!
(Aug 2, 2014 at 8:17 AM)
I only like a handful of wines so much so i only purchase specific brands..ie. Cranberry wine produced by Muskoka Lakes. I like them sweet but not ice wine sweet. When i went wine tasting in Napa i thought this is going to suck....but then i met La Fantasia and i rushed to buy a bottle to share with everyone in Toronto, Canada. The toughest part about that was trying not to drink it before we left.it made it but i regret only buying one!!! Please put it in the LCBO!!!!

This wine should not even be called wine. First it is not "rosé". Second, it tastes like a soft drink. It works for people who does not like wine.
I don't recommend it at all
(Oct 10, 2014 at 6:14 AM)
If magic had a flavor it would be this wine.
(Oct 18, 2014 at 6:00 PM)
The best wine I ever tasted!
(Dec 4, 2014 at 3:51 PM)
Since I don't like Rose or sparkling wine I was totally surprised I liked this wine. Perfect as a poolside or beach beverage on our hot Florida summer days. While I took home a couple of bottles of Lady of the Manor reds, I took home a case of this! All my white wine drinker friends like it as well. Have to order another case as we are down to 2 bottles and I am hoarding them until our supply is replenished. A great wine for non wine drinkers! Easy to see why it is their best seller...although the Lady of the Castle is my favorite
(Mar 1, 2015 at 2:38 PM)
Took a tour of the Castle. Tasted this on the tour. Great fun wine! Love it. It is a great pool side wine. People who do not like wine like it. I need another case
(Mar 6, 2015 at 4:27 PM)
I'm new to wine, so I don't like the bitter strong wines. This one is light, sweet and is so good!!!!!!!! I wish it wasn't so expensive compared to other wines I like but it's great. I also like Kikkoman plum wine.
(Mar 24, 2015 at 6:20 PM)
Delicious dessert wine. Easy to drink. Light and soft; a not overly sweet. Delightful sipping wine that pairs well with lighter foods like salads, white fish and chicken. A bit expensive but very enjoyable.
(Mar 28, 2015 at 5:28 PM)
My dear wife has never been much of a drinker she has fallen in love with this wine. It is too sweet for me, but she enjoys it very much, and "Happy Wife, Happy Life."
(Jun 9, 2015 at 6:51 PM)
Great for non-wine drinkers and non-drinkers in general. Tastes like those tetra-packed fruit punch juice for kids, except slightly bubbly and alcoholic. On the sweet side without being cloying, and over all monotonous. Nothing to overwhelm a bland palate. With that said, at $30, this is extremely over priced. You are just as good buying a bottle of Roscatto for your non-drinker friends. They wont know the difference.
(Jun 14, 2015 at 11:52 PM)
A great surprise to find a wine that was just "different" from the rest. I like sweet wine but this is in a different class. The all-natural fizz just tops it off perfectly. I don't drink large quantities of any wine but this could be the first I drink more than one bottle of...
