 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:

Lancelot Pienne Table Ronde Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc NV

Gilles Lancelot is a member of Les Artisans du Champagne, one of the more exclusive groups of growers in the area. Based in Cramant, his 55 parcels are spread along the northern sector of the Côte des Blancs, Côteaux Sud d’Epernay, and the Marne Valley. You won’t run out of things to talk about this 92 point-awarded Grand Cru Chardonnay that spends 5 years on its lees!

Santomè Prosecco Rosé

Don’t sleep on this DOC Prosecco Rosé from Santomé! The Glera and Pinot Noir grapes that make up this bottle hail from an island formed by the river Piave, Grave di Papadopoli. Intense and fresh on the nose, the palate sings with strawberry compote, raspberry notes, delicate hints of rose and hawthorn flowers.

True Colours

Cava for a cause? Yes, please! Created by Altia Sweden back in 2017, a portion of the proceeds from these bottles benefits @GLAAD (an organization committed to accelerating the acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community).​​​​​​​​ 100% Estate fruit and sustainably farmed, try it with tapas, fresh seafood or by itself with friends.

New Brand Announcements!

Spottswoode 

Serendipity is honored to bring these iconic, women-owned and operated wines to the Texas market. Established in Napa Valley in 1882, the iconic Spottswoode Estate is distinguished by the pre-Prohibition Victorian home depicted on their wine label. Spottswoode was christened by Mrs. Albert Spotts in 1910 and later acquired by Mary and Jack Novak in 1972. Mary released Spottswoode’s first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1982, exactly one hundred years after the estate’s founding. Today, Mary’s daughter Beth Novak Milliken manages the winery, and daughter Lindy Novak serves as the winery’s Marketing Ambassador.

Founded in 2012, Eco Terreno Wines is an authentic reflection of place, its name translates in Spanish means “land ecology” and “of the land” in Italian. With focused care and a joy of farming, Eco Terreno Wines represents the intrinsic flavors of Sonoma County’s renown Alexander Valley and the benefits of Demeter USA certified biodynamic, estate grown grapes.

The Serendipity Team is Growing…

Meet Thanh Nguyen, our newest addition to the Dallas Sales team! 

Thanh is from Vietnam, born in the Philippines, and raised in the DFW area. Wine was something that peaked his interest in his early twenties because it was connected to people, food, culture, and geography. He learned of Serendipity through early jobs in natural and Italian wines. Thanh’s new favorite wines in our book are Gamays from Division. When not working, he likes to hang out with his family, puppy dogs, hang outside wherever there are seas and trees, watch soccer, and ride his bike. He is also a good food advocate and board member for Slow Food DFW.
