DECEMBER 2019 CELLAR CLUB
December is a time of celebration, gatherings, toasts, and more! Two of our absolute favorite sparkling wine picks of the year are included in this month's selections as a way to celebrate you and your loved ones this Holiday Season. So, a toast to you, to your family, and special ones. We will see you in 2020.
Thank you for being a member of The Cellar Club, cheers!
Wine Pick #1:
Alpha Box & Dice Zaptung Glera
Frasca Vineyard, Murray-Darling,
South Australia, Australia
From Australia and the passionate, slightly bonkers folks at Alpha Box & Dice, whose goal is to create an alphabet of wines from A to Z, comes this wonderful sparkler made from the same grape, Glera, that is the basis of Italian Proseccos. This "Z" continues its mission to showcase New World environments and their interpretations of Old World styles. In pursuit of this, they've sourced only the best grapes from South Australia, in this case, the Murray-Darling River Basin. In their own offbeat words, "We once told people the bubbles got in the wine when lightning struck the tank...the story stuck!"
Wine Pick #2:
Days of Youth The Diver Brut Rosé
Inspired by the magical spirit of imagination and the endless possibilities of childhood, Days of Youth believe that wine offers these same opportunities and they bring that same freedom to winemaking by sourcing grapes based on quality and character, not appellation. Anything should be possible in the world of wine. The only categories they want to be in are delicious and FUN! What better accompaniment to your holidays, we ask, than a sparkling wine that embodies the kid in all of us? One of our favorites of the year-we just can't stop drinking it!!
