Devin has a Slovenian Sparkler for your Holidays. Yes, we said "Slovenian."

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 [...]
