Picnics and Prosecco

I’m all about embracing the weekend, so I’m popping some bubbly for the occasion. The weather has been strangely cooler these summer (almost fall) nights, so I take every chance I get to enjoy a glass of wine outside. Today, I’m sipping on a glass of Riondo Prosecco. Established in 2008, Riondo is located in…

Taittinger Tuesdays

Any day is a good day for Champagne, so why not make #TaittingerTuesdays a thing? I am pulling out a Taittinger Brut Prestige Rosé for the occasion. My mother-in-law brought it for us from Ireland, complete with the cute carrying case, so we were lucky enough to enjoy it with her upon her return. Pierre…

Cheers to Sparkling Margaritas

When I’m not drinking wine, I’m sipping on some tequila. So it’s no surprise that I’m always up for margaritas. Sometimes, I like mixing my two loves to create some bubbly, yet spicy, concoction. This time around, I grabbed a bottle of Louis Pommery NV Brut Sparkling to create my Sparkling spicy margarita. Alexandre Louis…

Snap, Crackle, Pop, Champagne

“Snap, crackle, pop, champagne!” That’s what my husband says every time we pop open a bottle of bubbly, which lets me know it’s going to be a good time. We recently closed on our first home, which is a good reason to pop open a bottle of Champagne (but, really, do I need a good…

Bubbly on St. Patrick’s Day

Sláinte, or cheers, to St. Patrick’s Day! I know you should celebrate with green beer or Guinness, but I usually celebrate holidays with bubbly. This time, I had some Avissi Prosecco on hand. The name “Avissi” comes from the delightful fizzy sound the bubbles make as they happily rise in the glass. Historians believe Italian…

Brunching for 2018

Miami has two seasons – hot and hotter – so Rosé is the best drink of choice. Every now and then, I like to mix it up with some bubbles, so I tried Pere Ventura Tresor Brut Rosé Sparkling Cava for a festive New Year’s brunch. Pere Ventura’s wine producing vocation is rooted in a…

Spanish Bubbles for NYE

With New Year’s Eve around the corner, there is no doubt that you are looking at your options for bubbly. Toasting at the stroke of midnight is a longstanding tradition with its own set of implications – Which sparkling should I get? How much should it cost? Should it be traditional Champagne? Luckily, as I…

Cheers to KO – A Knock Out Colleague

You know me as an amateur wino, but my day job consists of managing the communications and marketing efforts at a premier Miami art museum (Pérez Art Museum Miami to be exact, PAMM for short).  This week, a member of our “PAMMily”, Katherine O., is saying goodbye to this chapter in her life and is…
