What better Iconic Day of Love is there for bubbly wine than on Valentine's Day! We'll be showcasing some memorable bubbles for you to try before springing them on your soul mate. What to pair with pink bubbles? Ha! How about a chocolate body paint set? A raw oyster body shot? A tub of soapy hot water and Tom Jones over the loud speaker! Make up your own fun but make it with tickly fun bubbles!
We'll be popping the corks on the following wines. The tasting is free with a 15% discount on any pink wine, still or con gas. And, I'll probably have more than these four.
Vino Spumante, Montalcino, Pertimali Co., Montalcino, Italy. Lorenzo was a huge drinker of Prosecco, but unhappy with the headaches that resulted in the aftermath. So, he took matters into his own hands and created his own sparkling wine. Longer tank time with lees contact helps to round out the long life span of this wine. This blended wine contains sangiovese!
- Vin Mousseaux, Paul Buisse, Loire, France. Amazingly clean and bright with an assemblage of fruit you might not be familiar with - Pineau de Loire and Chardonnay.
- Cremant de Limoux, Michele Capdepon, Villelongue d'Aude. France. A fantastic blend of chardonnay, chenin blanc, mauzac and pinot noir! A precise bubble that is a little tight at the get-go, but softens up in the glass to release a delicate bouquet of freshly pressed raspberries.
- Brut Rose, Gruet, New Mexico. An American favorite, this sparklng 100% pinot noir done in the traditional Methode Champenoise says "I love you!" with the commitment of a box of chocolates.
