Bubbles…Cava…Sparkling Wine…Espumante…Champagne. Whatever you call it, and wherever it’s from, it’s known the world ’round as the celebratory drink of choice! The ritual of peeling the foil, removing the cage, then popping the swollen cork, ending with that recognizable “POP” is an experience that most of us associate with a special occasion or indulgence of some sort.
We ask: why can’t we partake in this happy, warm experience on any old day? Why reserve the specialness of effervesence and that toasty, biscuitness that is sparkling wine for the Holidays? Why only on special occasions?
We often start a dinner-date evening off with a glass of bubbly…or a Friday right after work with a popped bottle of something that fizzes. In fact, one of our favorite people, our Crazy Aunt Bevelina drinks “sparkles” as her drink of choice at any party!
We encourage each and every one of you to treat yourself to a delightful sparkling beverage any day of the week! Why not? After all, don’t you deserve it?!?!
