Thornton Winery has been producing Sparkling Wine using the same Méthode Champenoise production as used in Champagne since we opened in 1988. At that time Thornton was the only winery producing Sparkling Wine by that traditional method, which is universally acknowledged as the premier method, and we continue with that award-winning tradition to this day. We added table wines to our portfolio in 1993 and we now have a full range of wonderful White, Rosé and Red Wines added to a range of Sparkling Wines. With varietals traditionally found in France, we have numerous Rhône and Mediterranean varietals as well. Check our current range of wines on our website at www.thorntonwine.com, but be warned that you can only find our wines at the winery; we are not in distribution!
