 Bubbles Without Boundaries 

Shipping detainments, glass shortages, extreme weather… if the pandemic continues to teach our industry anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. We might not see the same production numbers in Champagne as we’re used to, but c’est la vie! Plenty of delicious bubbles abound, and we’re here to shine a spotlight on these sparkling alternatives:

Cesarini Sforza Brut NV

Have you tried this Chardonnay-based Brut from Cesarini Sforza? They produce sparkling wines in the Champagne method, but are actually located amongst the steep, verdant slopes of Trento, in Northern Italy. With at least 24 months on its lees, this wine is both exuberant and creamy— with a complex and persistent finish. Pretty notes of citrus and white flowers play out with sweet scents of cotton candy and pastries.

Roger Goulart Organic Reserva Cava Brut 

We can’t get enough of this certified organic offering from the folks at Arano Imports. Bright and lively, it has flavors and aromas of fresh white fruits, citrus, and subtle, creamy toast notes. Fine lees aging produces hints of elderflower. Try it with appetizers, light seafood or with your next celebration…

Serge Faust ‘Oeil de Perdrix’ Blanc de Noir Brut Champagne NV

José Ardinat and his wife Joelle Faust took over the family Champagne vineyards from organic pioneer Serge Faust. Now their son Christophe is the next generation to work the same healthy vines. ‘Oeil de Perdrix’ translates to ‘Eye of the Partridge’ and is a powerful, full-bodied Champagne made entirely from Pinot Meunier.

New Brand Announcements!

Wine and comedy share one defining parallel: the immediacy and authenticity of the audience’s reaction. You know whether a joke is funny or wine tastes good immediately. Pink Agua by José Rosé was born out of a passion for comedy that, by hilarious and perhaps fated circumstances, led to an appreciation of wine. Pink Agua began with co-founder (and comic) Kris Rosenberg’s creation of José Rosé, a fictional man of mystery and taste who lives in an alternate reality where he’s become the official face of rosé. He dons pink suits, swirling a glass of his beloved beverage with his pinky out as he moves between luxurious settings.

Nals Margreid’s winemaking tradition dates back to 1764, when the Campi estate was built on the site of today’s winery. The Nals winery was founded in 1932, then merged with Margreid-Entiklar in 1985 to become Nals Margreid. Today, 138 winegrowing families cultivate around 160 hectares of vineyards. These vineyards extend from Nals, a little town between Bozen and Meran (Merano), all the way to Margreid in the sunny, southern reaches of the region.
