The holiday season is all about special occasions, from themed parties to dinners surrounded by family and friends. For us, that means it's time to break out the bubbly! A Sparkling Rosé isn't just a great option for cocktails to ring in the New Year, but also an excellent choice for pairing with all your favorite holiday foods.
Last month, we discussed red wines that pair well with your Thanksgiving turkey, but Christmas is all about ham. However, much like Thanksgiving, it can be quite the challenge to find a wine that compliments every dish of your holiday spread. With fine bubbles, characteristic red fruit aromas, and a crisp mouthfeel with zippy acidity, our Sparkling Rosé is sure to please the palate when paired with holiday staples like fresh seafood, creamy scalloped potatoes, and even gingerbread!
Our Sparkling Rosé is made with 100% pinot noir grapes. Its signature bubbles are derived from a technique called the méthode champenoise: a traditional, labor-intensive bottle fermentation. In the méthode champenoise, the wine undergoes a second fermentation process in the bottle to produce carbon dioxide - creating a crisp, bubbly mouthfeel similar to what you would find in champagne. Méthode champenoise originated in the Champagne region of France and has been used to make some of the world's highest-quality, longest-lived sparkling wines for decades.
From toasting your Christmas feast to ringing in the new year, our Sparkling Rosé can easily fill in for a glass of champagne and is a great match for oysters or another festive party hor oeuvres. It can also be used as a mixer for cocktails, adding extra depth and intrigue to any New Year’s Eve aperitif!
Our sparkling rosé offers delightful color and perfect bubbles in the glass, as well as pairs beautifully with a wide variety of holiday fare. If you’re looking for a beautiful bottle of bubbly to celebrate your holidays and ring in the New Year, visit cellarbeastwine.com today!
