California Blooming Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

California Dreaming, California Drinking, California Blooming, introducing an original Glass of Bubbly Cocktail, aimed at capturing the wonderful flavours from the sun-shining, film-making, dream-creating state of California.

If you can’t go in person, go in spirit, that’s the motto of the company behind California Gin and to aid its Californian expression we’ve combined it with the amazing Prosecco brand of Giusti.

The Prosecco – Giusti

The Giusti family’s passion for wine dates back to the 1600s, the journey started when they bought a two-hectare property where Giusti Wine was soon to be established. Giusti Wine came from the original Dal Col vineyard which dated back to 1945, the full name of the company is Società Agricola Giusti-Dal Col srl, Giusti Wine planted its first vineyard in 2002 and grow rapidly with them now owning 75 hectares.
