Refresh with these Spanish Pét-Nats

Pét-Nats are the way more fun and wilder version of French Champagne. Petulante White Pét-Nat & Petulante Rosé Pét-Nat - Spain Despite its recent surge in popularity, Pét-Nat is actually far from being the new hipster kid on the block. A Pét-Nat (short for the French pétillant naturel, which means "natural sparkling") is a wine made according to the ancestral method. Developed in the 16th century, this is the oldest way of making sparkling wine. But don't let its trendiness scare you away. Pét-Nats come with a much smaller price tag than French Champagne, and they are way more [...]

What Are Drinking Now? Chateau Moncontour Vouvray Brut

Drew has become a devoted follower of this particular bottle of bubbles. CHATEAU MONCONTOUR VOVRAY BRUT This zesty Vouvray is my favorite bottle of bubbles in the whole store. I mean that. To say I enjoy a bottle (the whole bottle) once a week would rarely be truthful, because it's usually two, but with warm weather this week? Maybe more. This wine though...the beauty in it, for me, is a perfect balance of subtle components. The aroma — delicate, a little bit of ginger and honeysuckle. The fruit — modest, with light cameos from pear and yellow apple. Some [...]

Lambrusco

Tis’ the season for pink bubbles. With so many options regarding style, format and price point, there is plenty of reason to branch out and dive into Lambrusco.    The word Lambrusco may conjure thoughts of sweet, cloying, syrupy wine that is dense and one-dimensional. On the contrary, Lambrusco can be made into rather elegant wine that both treads lightly and delivers depth. While these wines do possess a fizz, their bubbles are not quite as alive and animated as those found in Champagne, Cava or even most Proseccos. Specifically, Lambrusco is the type of grape, which encompasses over [...]
