December Drinking Tip No.7


Sparkling is the most important wine purchase of the Holidays for reasons that I hope need no explaining. Get lots ““ it won’t go bad, I promise. Nothing spreads good cheer like glasses of bubbly. And it doesn’t cost a fortune.

Buy of the year is Jacob’s Creek Brut. Champagne alternative never tasted better. Zesty, toasty and sure to please. Get a case.

Bottega, one of my favourite Prosecco producers, has sent the pink version in a gold covered bottle. Check this picture out. How festive! How can you resist?

Go local with Chateau des Charmes who have been making great sparkling for longer than I care to remember.

It’s hard to distinguish between a good Loire region sparkling and a Champagne. Except in price. Start the evening with Chateau des Montgueret and the rest will be easy sailing.

Mumm Napa is the perfect choice if you need an up-scale name. The wine is damn good too.
