Heard it Through the Grapevine: with Liz Palmer

Ahh, Champagne! There’s just nothing else like it. It’s the drink ubiquitous with luxury and celebration. Whether you’re toasting to a special occasion or just in the mood to #TreatYoSelf – the answer is always: “Champagne!” Yet so much of Champagne – as a beverage and as a region – remains a mystery to even the most savvy of consumers. Even we as Sparkling Winos are constantly finding new elements to explore and new producers to seek out. Cue Liz Palmer’s “The Ultimate Guide to Champagne”… an invaluable resource! 😍

Champagne and Thai Cuisine, a match made in สวรรค์ (that’s heaven, in Thai)!

Last night we had the opportunity to sample the flavours of Northern Thailand and Laos at one of our favourite restaurants in Toronto: Sabai Sabai! And, as luck would have it, Sabai Sabai was pairing their delicious dishes with the one and only Veuve Clicquot Non-Vintage Brut Champagne! You might be thinking … uh, Thai food and Champagne? Yes! It’s an amazing pairing…

Easter Bubbles for Every Budget & Palate

It’s Easter already! Spring has sprung and there’s a sense of celebration in the air… and with celebration comes sparkling wine! While Easter bunnies and chocolate eggs are fun, nothing can beat a perfectly chilled glass of bubbly with family and friends.

#MimosaHacks! The Mimos’eh – or, the Canadian Mimosa!

It’s been a while and we Sparkling Winos think it’s time for another #MimosaHack! It’s February 20 – Family Day in Ontario, Canada 😍 So what better way to celebrate your favourites than with your favourite – a mimosa? Today’s no ordinary Family Day – in 2017, Toronto’s CN Tower (the western hemisphere’s tallest free standing structure) is turning 41, the Canadian Flag is turning 52 and Canada is turning (a whopping) 150! We may be a baby of a country, but we know how to festivate! So let us help you turn your Mimosa into a Mimos’eh, in honour of red maple, a shirtlessly hunky Prime Minister and amazing, traditional method bubbles (that’s right – we make quite a few of ’em in Ontario!) 🍾

Pommery Brut Royal Champagne – Review

This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to!
