Pét-nat is the pet name for Pétillant Naturel, one of the oldest types of sparkling wine. It is produced by bottling wine before it has finished fermenting. Its bubbles form naturally as the wild yeasts digest sugar in the grape juice and release carbon dioxide that is trapped inside the bottle. Pét-nat can be dry or sweet, white, red or pink, but it is always gently effervescent. Some have dubbed it "the New Rose."
