Sparkling/Champagne Tasting – Thursday December 27, 2018

Aloha Grapes Gang –

You are in for a treat!  Please join us this Thursday, December 27th, for Grapes’s annual sparkling/Champagne tasting.  From 3:00 – 6:30pm, we will be tasting five sparkling wines with a variety of aromas and flavors.


For the party animal, we have two bottles that look as good as they taste with just a note of sweetness:

Cuvee Deor, Extra Dry Sparkling Wine – The Gold Collection & Cuvee Deor Rose, Extra Dry Sparkling Wine, France ($13 per bottle).  Nifty looking bottles go along with refreshing flavors of stone and cherry fruit.


Francois Montand, Method Traditionnelle, Brut, France ($16 per bottle) – Wonderful fragrance of yeast, pie-doe, citrus peel and baked apples.  Ideal as an aperitif with light appetizers.


Bouvet Signature Brut, Loire, France ($17 per bottle) – Crisp, light, wonderful nose and flavors of lemons, lime peel and green apples.  It would pair well with chilled crab and crusty bread.


Champagne Trouillard, Extra Selection Brut, France ($39 bottle) – What a deal!  Bubbles the size of pinheads that goes on forever.  Bread-doe, toasted grains with lemon curd on the finish…exceptional!  It would be outstanding with Chinese-style lobster and black bean sauce! 

Grapes Team to you and your families, we wish you a wonderful holiday season filled with laughter, good food and good wine.


And, as a reminder, Grapes is open this Sunday from 12:00 noon to 6:00pm and Christmas Eve from 12:00 noon to 4:00pm.


Grapes is closed Christmas Day and will reopen Wednesday, December 26th at 12:00 noon.


Please drink responsibly, and we look forward to seeing you at our annual sparkling/Champagne tasting on Thursday, December 27th.


Wishing you all the best – the Grapes Team
