VINO’s Holiday Fizz Fest!!

“The long awaited, highly anticipated, and extraordinarily enticing bubble bash has returned. After doing our Holiday Fizz Fest for so many years it has become kind of ingrained in my mind that this is one of my personal holiday kick off events. But we all have our own traditions, such as this guy’s “Getting arrested dressed as Santa” tradition…

“Corks on bottles from around the world will be popping, and if you’re trying to figure out which fantastic fizz to feature at your family functions, fret not because we have you covered at all financial comfort zones. The weather outside may be frightfully cold, but all will be warm and bubbly at the wine shack tomorrow when we share this holiday joy….
-n/v (non-vintage) CANTINA MONTELLIANA Prosecco (Italy) $10.95
-2008 JUVE Y CAMPS Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva (Spain) $15.95
-n/v DE CHANCENY Cremant de Loire Brut Rosé (France) $16.95…a very cool bottle of 100% cab franc based bubbly. Loved it!

-n/v SCHRAMSBERG “Mirabelle” Brut Rosé (Cali.) $23.95…90 pts-Wine Spectator
