Nothing suits a celebratory mood quite like sparkling wine, and this is among the many reasons more and more wine drinkers are breaking out the bubbly. In fact, sparkling wine has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, and so much so that its sales spiked by about 13% in 2021 alone. And while more and more wine drinkers are raising glasses of champagne, prosecco, cava, petnat, and other sparkling wine varieties to commemorate special occasions, there are many other reasons these bubbly beverages are having a moment.
For starters, there’s something inherently fun and special about popping a cork, filling a flute and taking that first fizzy sip. Furthermore, these fine wine varieties are easy to pair alongside virtually any type of cuisine. Because sparkling wines are highly acidic, they’re an ideal accompaniment to dishes ranging from cheese, seafood and cream sauce to fried foods, Asian dishes and salty bar snacks.
You can immerse yourself in these French and California sparklers at the Annual Pinot Noir Festival VIP Bubble Lounge the third weekend in May, hosted by the Roederer Family of Wines.
