Semi sweet cloudberry sparkling wine
Cloudberries are found in northern countries, including Latvia. The way to this national treasure is not so simple, but the benefits are invaluable.
Early, cool morning, when the sky begins to colour like the berries we are looking for. The first rays of the sun warm up your shoulders, and the first songs of birds accompany the berry pickers on their way to the swamp. Everyone already knows their best places and each summer after Midsummer celebration they go to check them. Very soon cloudberries must be ready. This is a short time – only about 2 weeks. In the beginning of July, the berries are usually ripe, but others right next to ready ones are just blooming.
Every year, diligent berry pickers manage to find this special Latvian golden berry among mosses and llamas of the bog and deliver them to the hands of skilled wine maker in order to make an excellent cloudberry wine.
Berries are harvested in the Gauja National Park. Wine fermented and naturally settled for about 12 months. It is a great addition to desserts, fruit and cheese. Recommend to use chilled +14˚C. Contains sulphites.
Every year, Ligatne winery participates in the Latvian berry and fruit wine competition, as well as the Baltic Cup, where cloudberry wine has received award-winning places for wine quality countless times.
