Lots and lots of bubbly!

Hey there!

I find myself sipping on some prosecco tonight – how about you?

Lately I’ve been having a lot of bubbly and I’m certainly not complaining! Whether it be champagne, prosecco, or cava…I love it all! They all offer different experiences at different price points. I mean we all love champagne, but if you are like me…atleast current me…I can’t afford to spend $100+ a night on this stuff. So what do I do? I turn to other bubbly producing countries to help me out!

Think prosecco if you generally like something on the sweeter side. Think cava if you are looking for tremendous value. Think Canadian sparkling wine if you want to “go local” (if you are a canuck of course lol). There are other countries doing interesting stuff – Australian sparkling shiraz – which is certainly an acquired taste….go explore!

The point is, you don’t always have to spend a lot to get a good bottle of bubbly. $15-25 CAD can get you far. However, if you got money to burn, then go for it!

What bubbly is your go to? Do you only drink it on special occasions? Saturday morning mimosas?

Let us know!

Cheers,

Nick

If James Bond Drinks Bollinger Champagne, So Must I!

Hey Friend!

What’s in your glass this evening? Well it doesn’t compare to what I’m having – bold statement, right? Sometimes you just got to be. Like our good friend “007” aka James Bond, tonight I’m having some Bollinger Champagne.

This stuff is soooo goooooood. I must thank my fellow colleague, Greg, for this recommendation. This bubbly is very tasty and features baked apple pie with a nutty finish. At an alcohol level of just 12.5%, this champagne is light and refreshing!

If only I could have this every day…

Have you had Bollinger Champagne before? What was the reason?

Anyways, time to get back to celebrating a special champagne birthday!

Cheers,

Skip the Sauvignon Blanc and Grab Some Semillon

Hey!

Often we gravitate towards something we are familiar with, and wine is no exception.

For white wines, I often witness people reaching for the typical Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. DON’T DO IT! I mean don’t get me wrong, those are two great varietals, but wine is an experience….why not try something new once in awhile?

If you are a lover of Sauvignon Blanc, I recommend you try Semillon. It shares a lot of the same characteristics as Sauvignon Blanc, but carries a bit more weight in my opinion. There is a good chance that if they were poured side by side at a blind tasting, you might have a hard time telling the difference between the two.

So if you are looking to try something new, without straying too far from “the usual”, ask for a Semillon!

Have you had a knock-it-out-of-the-park Semillon before? If so, please let us know which ones so we can compare!

Cheers,
