Collaboration

After working together on numerous wine projects, Winemaker Patric Matysiewski and Grapegrower Kaibab Sauvage formed a partnership in 2019 with the goal to create a new breed of estate winery, Sauvage Spectrum. Their first release, Sparklet is a lifestyle brand focused on fun, fruit-forward, & affordable sparkling wines. Handcrafted, artisanal blends are grown with the intention to produce a modern sparkling wine. Nominal interference in the cellar highlights our premium high desert fruit. Unusual and rare blends allow us to exercise creativity showcasing the versatility of Colorado wines without being tied to tradition. Sauvage Spectrum is 100% Colorado estate grown and bottled. Our Owners are hands-on and visible in the production of our grapes and wine every day, in the vineyard and winery.

The Taste of Palisade

Our vineyards are situated in the Grand Valley AVA, and the magical town of Palisade sitting at 4,728'. Grown with melted snow from the steep slopes of the Rocky Mountains, via irrigation from the Colorado River. The "million-dollar breeze" blows through the high desert valley, developing thick skins on our grapes. The sunshine beats down on the valley floor, an ancient riverbed, radiating off the Bookcliffs and surrounding mesas. Warm days and cool nights allow our fruit to ripen but retain acidity for balance. Alluvium silt, sand, and clay loam soils with the addition of volcanic rock lend a unique minerality to our wines. Every year new grape varietals are planted for research and development, to further define the future of Colorado wine. We are not interested in mimicking wines from other regions. We are developing grapes with the intention to produce the true taste of Colorado wine.
