I don’t drink enough of the bubbley stuff to comment on your question BUT my favorite cold winter or holiday wine style to have has to be moscato or port. I think both styles are great for kicking back with loved ones and unwinding. When it comes to post dinner drinking with GREAT company during the holidays I’m sipping some port for sure. Every new year’s eve over the past 6 or so years I’ve been drinking port but this year I might switch it up and have some demi sec or moscato.

    Good show – I would love to drink more bubbles, but my better half is not a fan.
    QOTD – Banner Elk, NC in 2003. Restaurant – Louisiana Purchase. Wine – 1988 Chateau Cheval Blanc. Toured the cellar with the owner and he let me purchase at retail from the cellar a 1988 Penfolds Grange Hermitage and 2 bottles of 2000 Lamborghini Campoleone from Umbria. He also threw in a couple of t-shirts!

    Hi all from France,

    Two points :

    1/ It’s Saumur not Saumar ;)
    2/ If you guys like sparkling wines, you should give a try to Lambrusco wines from Italy, the dry one are great !

    I totally on board, I can’t get enough sparkling wine! My Thanksgiving resolution was to, “drink more Champagne”. As for the QOTD, my favorite wine moment was in Madrid, Christmas 1999 with my dad and sisters. My first time out late with the adults. We were drinking whatever red wine the tapas bars had, and eating jamon & manchego, out carousing all night. But it was the first time I ever enjoyed wine as an “adult”.

    Great show. Really nice guy and glad a good person like him got to share the spotlight with THE Gary Vaynerchuk. Nice bubbles, too. Trying to get into champange buy I find it hard trying to drink it in non-special occasions. QOTD: Nearly two years ago when I went up in the mountians here to a winery called Icicle Ridge. Tasting their wines I finally started to get wines and knew I could like them. So it began………

    QOTD: Probably a staff tasting after hours when i was working at a wine store. It was good to not just read wine books but enjoy all sorts of wine with other people that really appreciate it. Many wine experiences to come as I learn where to get the best QPRs!

    yah-
    what u were talking about is Korean food.
    it’s called “???[Pot Bing Su]” in Korean.
    it can be like “adzuki bean sherbet” or “ice flakes with a (red-bean) syrup” in English.
    u can put fruits, green tea, or whatever u want, instead of red-beans.
    ^^

    Qotd: I don’t know how to pick just one

  • Keffreio

    firstly, it should be pronounced bra-khet-to like you will pronounce chianti like khian-ti.
    secondly, you don’t really want to swirl the glass when you’re tasting a sparkling wine, definitely not for champagne alike, although this is semi-sparkling, it is still a sparkling
