New Year’s Sparkling Review

December 27, 2016
(1) Comments on this post

Well 2016 is coming to a close and it’s almost time for HAPPY NEW YEAR! The madness of the holidays is almost over. It’s almost time to ring in the New Year with the biggest celebration ever. You may be planning on attending a huge gala event or a party of your own, or maybe just sitting back watching television and waiting and watching for the ball to drop in time square. No matter what your plans are, it’s always fun to to have a nice bottle of bubbly on hand to celebrate and toast in 2017. If you feel like drinking dry or sweet, here are a couple of suggestions.

Aubert Et Fils Brut Champagne

A fantastic value from the region of Champagne in France. It’s rich and crisp with a creamy finish.


Schramsberg Blanc De Blanc

Made with 100% Chardonnay, this sparkling wine has aromas of mango, apricot, lemon and white peach, on the palate it’s rich and full of vanilla cream pie. Delicious!


Lamarca Prosecco

A delicious sparkler all the way from Italy. It’s fresh and clean with notes of green apple and lemon. Great for making Mimosas.


Moet & Chandon Ice Imperial Champagne

Introducing the first Champagne to be served over ice. The flavor has lots of fresh fruit like mango, guava, nectarine and raspberry. Serve it with ice and fresh fruit like pineapple, raspberries and strawberries.



As we say good bye to 2016 and hello to 2017, I look forward to seeing you all at Nino’s.


Happy New Year!
