Now, I know not everyone loves bubbles, but there is a lot of truth in the fact that sparkling wine is rather popular and has been for a long time. By now I’m sure you’ve come to the conclusion that bubbly wine is the theme of this weeks blog. There are a lot of different routes I could take this blog, but I’m going to stick to a few key things and also share an upcoming event that will be taking place at the vineyard soon, so read on!
There are other types of sparkling wines found all over the world. Some examples include Cava from Spain, Prosecco from Italy, Cremant from various regions throughout France and even American Sparkling from the good ole US of A. Most of these are very affordable alternatives to true Champagne, especially if you just want to open up a bottle for no other occasion other than you want a glass (or two) of bubbles.
Which brings me to another point. Sparkling wine does not have to just be for special occasions! It can be for any day of the week. It is also an extremely food friendly pairing option with its high acidity and crisp flavors. Or when in doubt if you don't know what to pair with a dish, pair it with bubbles! I speak to the last point from experience (on more than one occasion).
Thanks for tuning into this week's edition of Out of the Barrel. Cheers
