RIVAROSE in Salon de Provence …  The lacy label is so pretty! Produced in the southern Rhône Valley, fresh with notes of strawberry and raspberry made from Syrah and Grenache grapes.

Love pink sparkly wine for Valentine’s Day!

 Pierre Sparr Crémant Brut Réserve

Cremant is where it’s at! The word refers to sparkling wines made in France that come from specific regions; specifically NOT from Champagne. Cremants are a great way to start to learn the rules of which grapes grow in which regions: Cremant d’Alsace (Pinot Blanc), Cremant de Bourgogne (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Cremant de Loire (Chenin Blanc), Cremant de Limoux (Mauzac!), and on and on and on. Oftentimes, you’re getting similar quality and on-par deliciousness without the scary price tags that come with Champagne.” —Theresa Paopao (Ribelle) Boston, MA

Notes of biscotti, almond, lemon make this sparkling wine a perfect pairing with Baylee’s Best Lemonade Chocolates (tastes like you are biting into a fresh lemon dipped in rich dark chocolate).

The strawberry and ripe cherry flavors in this California sparkling wine pair perfectly with Fine Champagne Truffles and Milk Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries.
