The Best Sparkling Wines to Pair with the Perseid Meteor Showers

A Sparkling Night with Paso Robles Wine Club
No matter the season, Paso Robles Wine Country has long been a popular destination for romantics, but every summer, lovers, young and old head to our picturesque landscapes to lie beneath the skies and count shooting stars. In August, as the Swift-Tuttle Comet makes its way through the inner solar system, and the skies light up with hundreds and hundreds of meteors over the course of just a few hours. With her rolling landscapes and inky dark skies, California’s Central Coast is the perfect place to watch the Perseid Meteor Showers.

While the pre-dawn hours are the best times for viewing the meteor showers, a great way to honor this August tradition is to stay up late and enjoy a glass—or two—of a locally made sparkling wine. 

Here are a few of our favorites:

Carmondy- McKnight Pomegranate Cuvẻe: What could be more festive than a pretty pink sparkler with the addition of California pomegranate?  A specialty of Carmondy-Mcknight Vineyards, this popular sparkling wine is perfect to match for an evening spent star gazing.

Laetitia Brut Coquard: Creamy, toasty and layered with the flavors of hazelnuts, cherries, and pears, this lively sparkler will put a little kick into the night.

Derby Sparkling Brut Rosẻ: This salmon-hued palate pleaser from Derby Vineyards is a well-chosen accompaniment to the perfect warm summer night, but more importantly it has everything a true romantic could want in a sparkling wine—from the notes of raspberry and almond to the soft pretty bubbles.


Soon enough, the lazy days and nights of summer will come to an end—all the more reason to kick back and enjoy the Perseid Meteor Showers. The Paso Robles Wine Club can help you make the most of summer’s best moments. Our wine club members enjoy regular shipments of unique, boutique wines from Paso Robles Wine Country and always include wines that you can enjoy now, or put away for a special event.
