'Tis the season for making merry and there's no better way to do so than with a glass (or let's be honest, at least two...) of bubbly. Whether it's prosecco, brut or Champagne, nothing says partytime quite like it.
We started off an impromptu Christmas celebration with friends at our place last night with a tasty organic prosecco from Villa Teresa followed by a crisp blanc de noir brut from the Fraser Valley winery Neck of the Woods. Both bottles worked deliciously with a selection of meats and cheeses and neither rang in at more than $20.00. This evening's bubbly (have I mentioned 'tis the season?) was decidedly more decadent as we dropped in on friends and were treated to a fruitful Taittinger Rosé and a very lovely bottle of Dom Perignon.
With Christmas morning drawing near and New Years just a week away, there will be much more time to celebrate the season with bubbles. I plan to pick up a few bottles of my favourite price-conscious bubbly, Steller's Jay Brut by Sumac Ridge and maybe a yummy bottle of Sofia Blanc de Blancs by Francis Coppola too.
It's going to be a very merry Christmas indeed!
