We love seeking the best sparklers for our holiday party at the Renaissance Hotel (530p-9p) in downtown Pittsburgh, what fun we will have with this bubbly line up from around the world! This event is open to the public, all are welcome! Especially for us, Chef Brian Volmrich (formerly of the Inn at Little Washington) will create a selection of awesome appetizers that will work well with our special sparklers! Although last minute changes are possible, here is the tentative group of sparklers for the Blowout:
Codorniu Brut Reserva Cuvee Raventos NV – Spain – Finely Textured, citrus, mineral finish – a solid Spanish Cava.
Zardetto Prosecco Brut – Italy – Soft and fruity, a friendly Italian bubbly.
Pascual Toso Brut NV – Argentina – Bright and fresh, an unapologetic Argentine.
Bouvet Brut Rose – France – Dry with red fruit flavors and crisp finish, luxurious French Rose.
Laetitia Brut Cuvee – California – Complex sparkler starts with citrus and apple followed by earthy, dry finish, fascinating!
Gruet Brut NV – New Mexico – Fine bubbles with layered flavors of green apple and toast leading to very dry finish, French style from USA.
Taittinger Cuvee Prestige – Champagne, France – The top of the heap! Complex, rich and creamy with earthy, red berry fruit notes followed by a delicate, yeasty finish – Beautiful!
