Pretty In Pink The Perfect Rosé Bubbles for your Valentine's Day
There are many ways to show appreciation for the people we care about, but there is something to be said about the way a bottle of wine can unite two people. As an aperitif, accompaniment, or long after a candlelit dinner, it gives way to an opportunity to bond, awaken your senses, and create lasting memories over a singular, shared experience.
This week we're highlighting some of our favorite pink bubbles, crafted by a few of our most cherished winemaking lovebirds! From their hearts to yours, this Valentine's Day foursome is PACKED with LOVE.
Bainbridge and Cathcart 'La Danseuse' Loire Valley, FR 2018 $32.99
Julie and Tony Bainbridge are a Loire Valley power couple, and their love for each other is as natural as the wines they produce. The seemingly effortless approach to their craft is every bit as spellbinding as this fascinating sparkling Grolleau. This Petillant Natural is delicate, intriguing and down right beautiful. One sip is to savor a bowl of succulent, just-ripe strawberries. There's a crisp, almost savory mineral component to this wine that sets it apart from all other rosés.
Poderi Cellario 'Atlantide' Piedmont, IT 2018 $33.99
Fausto and Cinzia Cellario are the third generation behind one of Piedmont's most exciting new projects. The couple is committed to keeping Langhe's long traditions alive, and are vigilant in efforts to protect what their family has built. Made from 100% Pinot Noir, what makes this Pet-Nat exceptional is its proximity to the sea. Cooling coastal winds allow the grapes to retain acidity and lend a refreshing salinity to this berry inflected sparkling rosé. Pair with fresh oysters and good company for an unforgettable experience.
Alfredo Maestro 'Perdigón' Castilla y León, SP 2017 $29.99
Alfredo Maestro is making some of the most unique wines in tradition-bound Spain. A self-taught oenologist, he has dedicated his life to reviving forgotten parcels and native varieties. His wines epitomize his cherished terrunño. Employing the método ancestral, the original (or ancient) method for producing sparkling wine, this enchanting blend of 95% Pinot Noir and 5% Garnacha is his newest creation. Our initial taste was love at first sight. And the palate is every bit as mesmerizing as its brilliant fuchsia hue. Perfectly ripe, red berries mingle with crunchy, rocky minerality. All backed by mouthwatering acidity and a tart, lingering finish.
Les Capriades 'La Bulle Rouge' Loire Valley, FR 2018 $33.99
Pascal Potaire and Moses Gadoucha stole our hearts years ago after tasting their crystal-clear sparkling wines for the first time. This illustrious duo is renowned for producing some of the greatest Pet-Nats on the planet. This Gamay is one of our all-time favorites. They've devoted nearly their entire production to sparkling wines, and evidence of their mastery is on full display in this wine. The palate explodes with juicy cherries and plums, tinged with earth and spice. There is an undeniable brightness and clarity to this wine not often found in this category. Pascal and Moses are in a class by themselves. The kings of Pet-Nat!
