FIVE LIGHTER SPARKLERS FOR SUMMER
We noticed some pretty interesting things during the lockdown. In the very beginning of the pandemic it was high-end wine and booze, along with pasta, cheeses, grocery items and such, but as people settled into knowing this was to be the “new normal” for a bit, we saw more and more affordable sparkling wines added to people’s shopping carts. I can’t say I know exactly what the thinking was, but I assume people have been trying to find joy and some extra merriment in what has been a rather insane year-and-a-half.
Even now that things are starting to normalize, I come back from my days off and our sparkling wine department has been stripped, leaving me with fresh holes to fill. As a 25-year bubble lover, this not only pleases me, but I am thrilled that I’ve found my tribe!
So, with this warmer weather creeping up on us, I thought I would help my fellow sparkling wine fanatics and put together a little list of fun, lighter sparklers to try. Not wines of richness or yeastiness. No, these are fresh little sparklers that taste fantastic on a warm afternoon or evening.
Keep coming in and adding these bubbles to your cart, and I promise you that your local wine merchant will stay on the hunt for even more bubble-liscious wines to splash about in.
