What wine will you drink to celebrate the holidays?
Last evening, I led a group of 15+ members of the North Shore Winers to a Champagne and Sparkling wine tasting at Corporate Wines in Woburn.
This was a free event and there were about 15 Champagne and Sparkling wines available for tasting as a number of other wines. There were also cheese, crackers, fruit and chocolate-covered strawberriese food to nibble on. While tasting, we listened to some jazz music performed by Danny Harrington. Everyone in my group seemed very happy with the tasting.
My favorites of the tasting were:
San Giovanni Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine ($14.25)
Gran Gesta Brut Reserva Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine ($13.25)
Scharffenberger, California sparkling wine ($21.00)
Roederer Estate, California sparkling wine ($24.00)
Ployez-Jacquemart, French Rose Champagne ($55.00)
Circle Spring Reserve, Shiraz, Australia (18.00)
