A TOAST TO BUBBLES!

 Ah the Holidays, time with family and friends and way too many reasons to celebrate. While the classic eggnog with rum or hot apple cider are always good choices, I tend to reach for a glass of bubble more often than not.  While there are great representations from around the globe, BC is producing some incredible sparkling wines in a variety of styles.  We have the perfect climate in BC for sparkling wines that produce ripe fruit and great acidity.  Many say that BC sparkling should be the foundation of what we are known for globally; and the sparking wines below are some good candidates to show that. Whether you are bringing a bottle to a party, sitting around the fireplace or picking out a gift for your boss, think bubbles!
