California Sparkling Wine

Inspired by the harmony, power and beauty of nature. A wine to bring you joy in all of life's moments.


The blue hue of the delphinium flower is considered one of the rarest colours to exist in nature. Enjoy this sparkling wine — an uncommon, joyful blend, made naturally.


Our inspiration comes from the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
We hope you feel it in every bottle.


We work with nature not against it. Organic farming, native yeast fermentation and absolute minimal additions, for a fresh, soulful expression of California.

Joyous Wine

For celebration and survival.

  • Organic Grapes

    No herbicides or pesticides ever. We honour the land by farming for microbial health and bio-diversity in the vineyard.

  • Made with Love

    No commercial additives or machinery. Wine made with real hands (and sometimes feet) and always lots of heart.

  • Woman Owned

    Delphinium is founded, owned and operated by a lady — with the love, support and inspiration of her family, colleagues and friends.

  • For the Planet

    We donate a portion of profits to the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation for tide pool conservation and restoration.

  • Who We Are.

    Courtney Humiston is a Sommelier and journalist who has been hustling in the wine industry for over 10 years— in restaurants, mostly, but also in vineyards and cellars across Northern California. A Champagne obsessive and advocate for natural and organic practices, making sparkling wine is truly a dream come true.

  • Where We Are.

    Northern California is both our spiritual home and actual home. The climate here is defined by the willfull and powerful Pacific Ocean. It can be peaceful or turbulent, just like all of us. Cheers to her and to all of you!

  • Why We Are.

    I wanted to make a wine that lifts your spirit and feeds your soul, all while honouring the natural world. Because we need sparkling wine (and each other)... in times of joy and celebration; but also in times of sadness and defeat.

What Does Delphinium ...

Taste like?

Just-ripe stone fruit, coastal flowers, citrus blossom, sea spray, quince, lemon zest.

Feel like?

Dew on spring flowers, a walk on the beach at dawn, the memory of freshly baked bread, a smile from a stranger, a kiss on the cheek.

Pair With?

Freshly-shucked oysters with a squeeze of lemon, fresh cheeses, steamed clams with loads of herbs, or just good company.


"We call this 'Tuesday.' It is so good!"

"My friend and I went through 10 of the 12 bottles I got from you in 36 hours! Delphinium was the clear winner :)"

I tried her this weekend and I'm in love...she is my new bubbly mistress!

Wanted to let you know we just had your sparkling. And LOVED it…. Next time we’re up in Healdsburg, we’ll be sure to get some more! Congratulations on this new endeavor. I’m sure a lot of heart, sweat, and commitment went into it. It paid off!
