"What people are saying about our work"

Champagne winemaker Gerald Ployez crafts L’homme qui ris in classic Brut style. The wine distinguishes itself with high notes of lemony crispness atop a rich middle of brioche toast, vanilla and honeysuckle. The wine’s hint of sweetness rounds out a classically light clean finish. With a tight, lively bead, this sparkler contends with imports at twice the price and places Monterey County and Steve McIntyre right in the middle of the international bubbly parade of stars alongside Napa’s entries and the wines from Europe. Double Gold Medal and "Best of Appellation" accolades from Appellation America...

We have had our sparkling wine bottled and disgorged at Ployez for over 10 years. Gerald and Shirley have been incredibly easy to work with. Gerald is flexible and accommodating and can offer valuable advice in finishing the wine. In my opinion Gerald’s experience and knowledge is indispensible. The projects are always completed in a
timely fashion and to a high standard of quality.
