With a venturous spirit and an appreciation for extraordinary wines for every palate and price point, Healdsburg-based Share A Splash Wine Co. is a portfolio brand name encompassing Cannonball, Angels & Cowboys, High Dive Napa Valley, Astrolabe wines from New Zealand, and Twin Vines by José da Maria Fonseca from Portugal. Driven by their mission to share a splash in every glass, the one-of-a-kind wine portfolio has a presence in 47 United States and 30 international markets.
Embodying the heart and soul of the portfolio brand through artistic expression lies Head Winemaker Ondine Chattan. Crafting the wines for Cannonball and Angels & Cowboys showcases the versatility and strength behind Chattan’s genius. “At Share a Splash, we endeavor to collectively tell a story, share a perspective, and encapsulate that sentiment in a bottle. When you see Cannonball or Angels & Cowboys on the shelf or wine list, we hope that our fun-loving, inclusive, artistic, attainably indulgent point of view is conveyed and entices you to try the wine. In the bottle, our stylistic message is one of distinctive, luscious, juicy, fruit-driven wine laced with the elegance of French oak and framed in refined tannins. It aims to deliver an engaging and gratifying tasting experience as well as extend an invitation to accompany us in the lifestyle and mindset of Share a Splash,” Chattan said.
Share a Splash wine co. recently welcomed a new addition to the family. Expanding on the Angels & Cowboys highly successful Rosé program, Angels & Cowboys Brut Rosé was released to the market late in 2020. Ondine has crafted the Brut Rosé in the traditional Méthode Champenoise, a method that allows a wine to go through a second fermentation inside the bottle producing small, fine bubbles and a creamy mouthfeel. Sourcing traditional Champagne varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier from favorite Northern California vineyards, the resulting wine is crisp and well balanced with red raspberry notes, strawberry, and watermelon.
Partnered with the Angels & Cowboys Sonoma County Rosé, the still wine counterpart is made in the Vin Gris style, presenting a full-bodied Rosé with notes of white peach, nectarine, and fresh raspberry. A Grenache-based blend, the stunning Rosé exudes character and elegance. Using the traditional Provençal method, the grapes have minimal skin contact producing a delicate style wine composed of ex- plosive aromatics and vibrant acidity.
“Ethereal and ephemeral, rosé wines are all about being in and enjoying the moment. Our two rosé wines, the Sonoma County Angels & Cowboys and the Brut Rosé, both offer the delicate palate structure, bright fruit, and lively acidity that make rosé so appealing,” expressed Chattan.
