This is a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir grapes.  Light salmon pink  in color.  Nice mousse with medium to small bubbles.  The nose has cherries, pomegranate and slight fresh hay notes.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, this has a slight sweetness.  Cherries with slight "crushed rocks".  Long finish.  This is easy drinking and would be a great choice for a holiday party.  Drink now.  It is nice on its own and should be food friendly.  Fried foods (think appetizers) are a good choice.

Silvery/gold in color.  A moderate mousse with medium sized bubbles.  Clear and bright.  The nose is nice with a hint of green apples and slight peach notes.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this has a soft, easy to drink texture.  Apples and peaches with good acidity.  Moderate finish.  This drinks well on its own, but should be better with food.  Very food friendly.  It would go well with pasta with a cream sauce.  Drink now.

This Prosecco is made from 85% Glera and 15% Chardonnay grapes.  Silvery gold in color with a nice mousse of medium sized bubbles.  The nose has a pleasant yeasty quality to it along with golden apples, and slight ginger notes.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, there is a hint of sweetness as this comes across as off-dry.  Apples with a touch of honey and slight ginger.  Long finish.  This is nice on its own and worked with with fried appetizers.  Drink over the next few years.

The origins of the Italian Spritz date back to the late 1800s when German soldiers found the local Italian wines too strong. The soldiers added a “spritz” of water to the wine to create a lighter beverage. Using 100% Glera grapes then infused with botanicals, bitter herbs, and flowers, the addition of pink grapefruit and a little carbonation creates a delightful sparkling beverage low in alcohol just in time for the summer months. Slightly sweet with light grapefruit, there is just a hint of bitterness on the finish.

A very nice way to start an evening especially with a crowd.  Silvery/green in color, clear and bright.  A nice mousse with medium bubbles.  On the nose, an effervescent lemon/lime quality.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, this is dry with minerality and lime notes.  A bit of lemon hard candy on the finish.  This drinks well on its own and will work with most foods.  Drink now.

This is a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir grapes.  Salmon pink in color.  Frothy with a variety of sized bubbles.  The nose has strawberries and slight apple notes.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, there is nice acidity.  Slightly sweet.  Cherries and strawberries.  A lingering finish.  An enjoyable Prosecco with some depth as well.  Very nice on its own, this should work well with food.  It would go nicely with roasted turkey or duck.  Drink over the next couple of years.

This an Organic, semi-sparkling Prosecco from Italy.  It is made from 85% Glera grapes, with 15% other allowed varieties.  The packaging is attractive.  Silvery/green/gold in color with a good amount of frothy bubbles.  The nose has minerality and some salinity along with green apples.  Refreshing.  On the palate, the green apples come thru along with a bit of sweetness.  Nice acidity to balance that.  Good finish.  This is nice on its own and should work well at the beginning or end of a meal.  It will work nice with fired calamari and also a not too sweet pound cake.

This comes in an attractively packaged squat bottle with a wire cage for the cork (which makes a festive pop when opened).  Pale gold in color with some green hues, clear and bright.  There are a good amount of small bubbles.  The nose is nice with green apples and pears.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this is very refreshing.  Flavors of honeydew and slight lemons.  Slightly sweet.  Good acidity.  Nice finish.  This is a tasty, fun wine.  It drinks well on its own and would work with lighter foods and also fried foods such as Shishido Peppers.  Drink over the next year or two.

A very nice Prosecco.  11% abv according to the label.  100% Glera grapes.  Silvery gold in color, very foamy with lots of small bubbles.  Lots of effervescence.  On the nose plenty of limes, some golden delicious apples and minerality.  Crisp.  Refreshing.  Medium bodied.  Dry.  On the palate, apples and minerality.  Nice finish.  Very clean.   This drinks easily on its own and is very food friendly.  A nice way to start an evening with a classic artichoke dip but also Sushi if looking to change it up.  Try to buy the freshest bottles that you can.
