Celebrate with Sparkling Wine
(StatePoint) — Throwing a party? Sparkling wines go hand-in-hand with special occasions.
If you are looking for something new to serve your guests, consider swapping your usual bubbles for Cava, a delicious and wallet-friendly Spanish sparkling wine that is made using the same traditional methods as Champagne.
One Cava producer offering top-quality sparkling wines is Poema. Their wines are made from sustainably farmed grapes, and are available at affordable prices.
Their Poema Cava Brut is a fine choice for your cocktail hour. Its fresh citrus and granny smith apple aromas and toasty notes are a good match with light tapas, oysters and seafood.
It also makes for delicious sparkling cocktails, such as the Belle of the Ball (see recipe below).
And for those guests who like things a little bit sweeter, there is Poema’s Cava Extra Dry.
Served as an aperitif or paired with passed appetizers and starters, its crisp aromas of green apples, limestone, and spring flowers offer a trace of sweetness that is well balanced by a crisp finish.
Whether you are having a formal celebration or a casual party, be sure to celebrate the right way – with sparkling wines that won’t disappoint your guests.
