This Lunetta Prosecco received an 8.5 raing scale from me and what I love about it is how fruity it is! It’s the perfect sparkling to mix with your fresh juices for brunch. Try this when the girls come over and I promise you’ll love it! 

Until next week happy Sipping winefriends!  

Wind Down LIVE: Desireé

So excited to have another somm join us for #WineDownLIVE! This week we were happy to have Desireé (@winenoire) joining us to discuss another tasty champagne 🍾 for you to enjoy for the holidays. 

La Marca Prosecco

Let me just say— I loved this! You all know we haven’t had many champagnes or sparkling wines on the show and that’s because of all wine this one is usually the one I reach for the least unless it’s brunch. But baaaaby this one right here? BOMB. Waste not a second in going to pick this up. You will thank me later!

Wine rating: 10

What am pairing with this one? French Fries

How am I brunching with this one? Add lemonade, orange juice, and a splash of cranberry.

Check out this neat trick Desiree uses  to save and style her wine labels! Follow her on IG @winenoire. 

Holiday Draaanks: Apple Cider Mimosas

Here is a twist on a classic, Apple Cider Mimosas. This is a simple and delicious recipe that will impress your brunch guests. I recommend a spiced cider (think cinnamon and cloves). If you’re feeling frisky, you can even make the cider from scratch.

FootballxWine series: Pizza & Wine

“It’s a hard knock life for us...” 

Remember that classic JayZ hit? Well Chrishon Lampley of Love Cork Screw labeled her wine with the catchy phrase and her wine, like the classic rap is a complete HIT! 

This week on Wine Down LIVE I put this Concord grape varietal to the test with a classic cheese pizza. Though the pizza left a lot to be desired the pairing itself went well together.

Thank God the wine saved this combo! I love the rich flavor of this wine. To me the Concord grape shows up and came to Part-tay with all the wine lovers no matter how sweet or dry you like it.

Wine Rating: 9.5

Pairing Rating: 7 (the pizza was terrible haha) 

Notes: Serve this table red with pizza or snacks and at any gathering for all wine lovers! 

If you pick this one up you have to let me know how you like it!
