Happy Holidays!

The wine fairy
wishing you
Happy Holidays!
Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season! May you be surrounded by loved ones and your glasses be continuously full.  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I plan to do a lot more writing and video blogging for you. I also hope to be more active in recommendations to help you sift through the sea of wine. Here's to sharing great wines with you in 2012!

I just love this time of year. I don't have to hide my undying love for all things bubbly. After-all, "'tis the season!" Whether it's Champagne or sparkling wine, enjoying that sparkle is one of those things that I look forward to most about the season. Ah sparkle! Not that you need the holidays as an excuse to open up the fizz. It's perfect to enjoy all year!

Currently in my wine rack for sipping on during the holidays:

Getting my Champ on!
Deutz Brut Rose Champagne 2006 $79.00
I've read excellent reviews.

Bollinger Brut Special Cuvee $69.95 
Should I open or wait...this one is just fabulous.

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne $64.95
Can't wait to try this! Thanks Luc and Dave...the perfect gift...bubbly!

Vincent de la Remondiere Cuvee Reserve Brut Cremant de Bourgogne $18.95
I've had this one many times before and usually keep a bottle or two on hand. It's a delicious sparkling wine from Burgundy France. Made in the same method as Champagne, it cannot be labeled as a "Champagne" since it's not from the Champagne region. Instead, it is labeled as a Cremant (de Bourgogne).

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut $13.95
A Spanish cava that's perfect for making mimosas Christmas morning. Also made in the same method as Champagne but using different grape varieties.

Look what Santa left!
Looks like he drank some. 
For shame that I currently don't have any bubbly from Ontario. Now I must go pick out a bottle and start the holiday movie watching. First up, Elf!
