What Are We Drinking Now? Valentine’s Edition

Sierra has the ultimate wine for a romantic night in!

Lunaria 2021 Sparkling Pinot Grigio Pet Nat

Picture this: you and your partner decide to take it easy for Valentine’s Day and just enjoy each other’s company with some delicious takeout for dinner. The only problem is: What are you going to drink? Lunaria’s Pet Nat is definitely the answer!

This luxurious wine boasts big aromatic elements of muddled strawberries, tart pear, and fatty prosciutto. It was made with spontaneous fermentation, which means that the fermenting process was paused for bottling, allowing it to ferment further while on the shelves of your favorite wine store (Marczyk Fine Wines, obviously). Fermenting the wine in this way gives it a unique funkiness and fun effervescent bubbles that tickle your tongue. As the bubbles linger you’ll get notes of crisp stone fruit and bruised berries in this yummy, medium-acidity wine.

For a match made in heaven, this Pet Nat loves sushi takeout, shrimp scampi, or a seductive plate of angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Let us play Cupid this year and pair you with one of our favorite wines.

Bonus song pairings for a romantic evening with this wine: 
“My Cherie Amour” — Stevie Wonder
“See You Again” — Tyler, The Creator
“Pink + White” — Frank Ocean

Barbara Macfarlane, owner of Marczyk Fine Foods, is always happy when she gets asked to talk about a favorite wine or spirit. "So many wines, so little time. So like our customers, I depend on the crew to tell me what's new, delicious, and noteworthy. It's true, I get stuck on faves, but the new wines coming in the door are so well chosen! So drink up Denver, we've been doing this for 20 years and we know what's cool!"
