We are about ready to pack up and head home for the holidays. Maggie already has her bag packed and she is ready to hit the open road! Actually, all of her stuff is on a list and she will probably dread doing 13 hours in baby socks but who knows…
Anyway, the reason we are going home is to be with family and celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with a glass of bubbles! This was another great wine from Viszlay. We had the opportunity to visit John Viszlay and his property when we were on our trip to California this summer.
This Prosecco from California was nothing short of AMAZING! The slight hint of red apple in the nose and on the pallet was out of this world. I usually don’t consider Prosecco as a harvest time choice but this one begged for an evening by the fire and perhaps a seasonal movie… The color was perfectly golden and not too pale. I so enjoyed this one that I hope we get a bottle of it in our next shipment from our wine club.
From the Viszlay Website:
“With the only domestically grown Prosecco in the region, this Sparkling wonder is made in a drier style than some of the Italian versions you may have had in the past. This vintage is similar in taste to the 2008, which won Best of Class in the North of the Gate Wine Competition in 2010. Start the evening with this refreshing wine!
alcohol content by volume: 12.5%”
Besides enjoying great wine with the family when we are home, we are going to have a few family meals. We are probably also going to squeeze in some shopping and a little local sight seeing. What are your plans for your Turkey Day week?
