NEW YEAR’S WOW’S!

Obviously our wine shop is jam-packed with delicious
wines from around the world.  But this week our focus
will of course be on sparkling wines.  Here are a few
of our favorites:
The Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco is still in the house,
still delicious, and still on sale at 9.97/bottle (from 15.97).
Also, we managed to snag a few more cases of the
Lamberti Brut Rose Spumante.  This fun, frothy, “bubble
gum in a glass” is still just 9.97.
How about the Laetitia Brut Cuvee from Arroyo Grande,
California?  Lively, crisp, and wonderful.  Just 17.97.
Finally, the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Champagne.
59.97/bottle, 93 points Wine Spectator:
“Like a Persian carpet this lovely, elegant Champagne
seamlessly weaves together its elements, with fine-grained
texture and vibrant acidity joining rich flavors…”
These – along with their friends in the sparkling section –
are available for purchase now, first come first served.
