21 Dec 10 Amazing American Sparkling Wines
Whether champagne, prosecco, cava, or domestically produced sparkling wine, I drink them year-round — even when the temperatures in Minnesota dip below -25 degrees F. I pair them with everything from avocados to ziti.
Lately, I’ve really been enjoying sparkling wines produced in California, Oregon, and New York. The winemakers have never been better at their art and the wines have never been so tasty. If you’re looking for a new twist to the bubbly you serve on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day festivities, take a look at these wines. They’re sure to surprise and delight.
California – Every time I visit Napa, Sonoma, or Santa Barbara, I always make a beeline to Schramsberg, Domaine Carneros and Fess Parker. Check out the following sparklers:
- Blanc de Blancs Vintage and Cremant Demi-Sec
- Estate Brut, Brut Rose and Ultra Brut
- Fesstivity Blanc de Noirs
Oregon – If you think California is the only game in town on the West Coast when it comes to bubbly, think again. The winemakers at Argyle Winery, Gran Moraine, and Domaine Serene are have given folks like me who prefer big red wines (instead of subtle Pinot Noirs) a reason to visit the Willamette Valley. Check out the following sparklers:
New York – I’m typically not a fan of New York wines; however, there are some interesting things happening at Dr. Konstantin Frank Wines and Sparkling Pointe. Check out the following delicious sparklers.
From everyone here at Axiom, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a profitable New Year!
