Monday Wine Fact: Love sparkling wine?

Love sparkling wine? Legend has it that Champagne’s inventor Dom Perignon shouted, “I’m tasting the stars!” after experiencing the drink’s carbonation.

The sparkling wine featured in this picture is the @apaltagua Costero Brut. A delicious sparkling wine from Chile. 60% Chardonnay 40% Sauvignon Blanc – this wine delivers notes of crisp apples mixed with delicious hazelnut to round out a creamy mouthfeel. Pairs well with Monday’s and every other day. 🍾🥂

Chilean Siesta w/ Apaltagua Granate Demi-Sec Sparkling Rosé

#TakeMeBack to this Chilean Siesta….

Full of afternoon glow, great conversations, and delicious vino💗🍷🇨🇱

This was one of my favorite afternoons in Chile. We enjoyed a bottle of Apaltagua Granate Demi-Sec Sparkling Rosé – Chardonnay infused with Pomegranate juice made in the methode champenoise style. A wine full of flavor! Notes if strawberry, pomegranate, and other sweet red fruits with a crisp effervescent finish 🍾🥂 Learning about methode champenoise, the inspiration behind adding the pomegranate juice, and all around great views made for a fantastic afternoon.

More tales of Chile to come…. Stay tuned….

FriYay! with Some New Mexican Sparkling


It’s Friday and we missed Wine Wednesday, so we opened some bubbles. And what awesome bubbles they were!

Sauvage by Gruet Winery did not disappoint! I picked it up at Quincy Gypsy Kitchen Wine & Food Shop. The owner knows how much I love interesting new wines and suggested it for me. It’s made in New Mexico! How cool?!  Also, my buddy Chappy from Cru Podcast enjoyed some not too long ago so I knew I needed to share this with my winemaking friends.

The wine had a pleasant nose with soft apple notes, toasted white bread, and yeasty undertones. The palate was very well balanced. The acidity was not overly crisp, but the wine was not overly creamy either. A wonderful balance in my opinion. The bubbles dance on your tongue as you enjoy this delicious and tantalizing wine.

Cost: $25.00/bottle {#worthit}

Happy Friday Everyone! 🙂
