Can you believe it? We’ve made it through another holiday season and now it’s nearly time to bid adieu to 2017. Whether you’re hosting a grand soiree or staying at home to watch the ball drop from afar, our Wine of the Week is a perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve celebration.
In my mind, there’s nothing more fitting for a New Year’s Eve celebration than a chilled flute of refreshing and delicious bubbly.
Let us introduce you to one of our favorite sparkling options and our Wine of the Week: The Montechaira Prosecco.
The Montechaira Prosecco is a well-balanced sparkling wine from Veneto, Italy. It has citrus flavors and floral notes. This prosecco is Extra Dry, which gives it a more firm palate presence, good acidity, and bright freshness that makes it seem more like a Brut while lengthening the finish. It also pairs very well with appetizers, fish and white meats.
Did we mention that this prosecco is also an incredible value? At $11.99 per 750ml bottle, you can be sure to keep your guests feeling bubbly well into 2018!
From all of us at Mollie Stone’s Markets, we wish you a safe, healthy, and very happy New Year!
