That’s right, you heard it here. You can absolutely ring in 2018 with plenty of quality sparkling wines that won’t break the bank on New Years’ Eve.
The holidays are all about family, friends and #festivating! But in between celebrating, the gift giving thing can be stressful. Thankfully, we’ve got the answer: sparkling wine! 😍
This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending “Into The Vine” – a wine tasting deconstructed – here in Toronto. But this wasn’t your traditional wine tasting… in fact it was far from it! While we sipped and swirled some of the best wines Ontario has to offer, we found ourselves immersed in 6 incredible multi-sensory art installations inspired by 6 different VQA Ontario wine varieties.
Ah, Thanksgiving… a festive time to get together with family and friends over turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and green beans. Not to mention potato salad, roasted butternut squash, and… in our case, pasta al forno and pierogi! Oh, and lasagna, caesar salad, glazed ham and roasted red peppers. And maybe cheesecake and bubbleberry pie and, oh right, a little bit of homemade apple crisp. But we digress.
This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! This week we’re sipping Konzelmann’s Sparkling Rosé, a fresh and vibrant charmat method bubbly crafted from Merlot. So, is this a bottle of bubbles you should POP? 💁 Or is it a FLOP? 🙅 Let’s see…
It’s #TIFF2017 here in Toronto, and we want to help you celebrate one of the world’s largest film festivals with an assortment of VQA sparkling wines that we think will be a perfect match!
Now that we have your attention, we’d like to redirect it to the criminally underappreciated sparkling wines of Germany. German winemakers are known for amazing Riesling and Spätburgunder (aka Pinot Noir), but did you know that sparkling wines are one of their specialties, as well?
This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! This week we’re sipping Nino Franco Brut Prosecco Superiore! Now, that’s a mouthful of a name, eh?
On July 1, 2017 Canada will celebrate it’s sesquicentennial (150th) birthday! As Canadians gear up for the big day, we Sparkling Winos thought… why not celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with Canadian bubbles from a Mari usque ad Mare? (That’s “from sea to sea” in Latin – our country’s motto)!
Summer has officially arrived – and it’s heating up outside! As the temperatures rise you’re probably looking for a quick and refreshing way to cool down, but don’t swap that glass of wine out for a cold beer just yet…
