“Star Wars: Battle of the Bubbles”
"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!" is supposedly what French Monk, Dom Perignon said when tasting the first sparkling champagne. Little did he know, that in 2019 the sparkling wines would gain consciousness and have a battle for the right to call Earth it's home. Come witness that battle. Two gladiators each from the Pink, White and Deep red, will try to woo and wow you on this Battle of the Bubbles tasting.
Come in costume and receive a free tasting!!!

This sparkling Arneis has aromas of mature yellow apple skin, acacia and dried apricot. The aromas carry over to the brisk palate along with an orange zest note. Pale yellow in color.

An Awesome Gamay grape. I love this wine. It is deep red, dry as a bone and sparkling! The wine is made in the method ancestral, or "pet-nat". The wine is fresh and fun, with aromas ranging from, dried flowers to dried cranberry and strawberry. In the mouth there is plenty of crunchy, crisp red cherry fruit.
