Here are some sparkling wines your readers will want to have on hand to add something to any moment. They transform the mundane into the celebratory, and they also make ideal gifts.
Veuve du Vernay Ice Rosé NV SRP $14.99
Ranked #1 by IMPACT Hot Prospect Brand Award for Imported Wines from 2017-2019, Veuve du Vernay is the leading French sparkling wine brand in the U.S. and shows no sign of slowing down. Crafted to be enjoyed over ice, Ice Rosé is slightly sweet with red fruit aromas to match its sparkling pink hue. It’s an ideal and unexpected cocktail for celebrating the New Year. From the bottle to the glass this wine epitomizes a fun, flirty Parisian lifestyle.
Bread & Butter Extra Dry DOC Prosecco SRP: $15.99
Made to be simply enjoyed, this graceful, everyday Prosecco was created by winemaker Linda Trotta who worked with a 90-year-old, family-owned winery near Venice, Italy. The result is a delicately perfumed wine with notes of floral and ripe fruit, bright acidity, and a complement of creamy mouthfeel and layers of soft bubbles that persist through to the long, elegant finish. Packaged in an elegant gold and black label, this beauty is ready to party.
Steenberg Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc NV SRP $18
Created from grapes from the oldest registered farm in South Africa, the Steenberg Vineyards Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc is a testament to the strengths of the storied Constantia wine region. Traditional method fermentation adds another fun and fresh level to this wine; aromas of passion fruit and lime give it a fruity nose while the palate is light and smooth.
Graham Beck Blanc de Blancs 2015 SRP: $30
An exceptional example of Cap Classique wine, the fruit was hand selected, and hand harvested from Graham Beck’s specific Chardonnay Clonal block on their Robertson Estate. This wine is elegant and impressive, a real treat for any meal and a total steal at this price for this quality of traditional method sparkler! Another great option is the Graham Beck Brut NV for just $20.
Biltmore Blanc de Blancs SRP $35
Crafted with Chardonnay grapes sourced from the west coast and using the traditional methode champenoise, the Biltmore Estate Blanc de Blancs is a classic bottle of bubbly for any occasion. It can stand alone as a wine to toast or to pair with lightly dressed seafood and greens. Up your hospitality game to Vanderbilt level by sharing this with your close circle.
Balletto Brut Rosé 2014 SRP $42
This sparkling Brut Rosé comes from Balletto Vineyards, one of the few family-owned estate wineries in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. It’s delicate, pretty and delicious. The soft, coral-hued color sets the stage, and the tiny, persistent bubbles confirm that this is a serious sparkler.
