3 Corks to Pop this Valentine's Day
When the famous Parisian fashion designer, Coco Channel quipped, “I only drink champagne on two occasions. When I am in love and when I am not,” she quickly summed up what we all feel—there’s never a bad time for champagne. However, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner and the landscape throughout the Central Coast of California springing into bloom, at the Paso Robles Wine Club we couldn’t think about a better time to extoll the pleasures of drinking pink—bubbles, of course.
There’s no need to head off in search of a bottle of French bubbly—there are several fabulous sparkling wines produced throughout Paso Robles Wine Country. The Wine Wrangler offers a variety of wine tasting tours where you can enjoy sampling some of the county’s finest, or you can head off in search of one of these blushing beauties:
Goat Bubbles Rosẻ: With grapes grown in the Solomon Hills Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA, Flying Goat Cellars ups the romance with this pretty pink sparkler with notes of apple and kiwi. Enjoy it with steamed Dungeness crabs dipped in draw butter and served alongside crusty sourdough bread.
Pomegranate Cuvẻe: Pretty in pink goes heart-thumping rougẻ--a pink sparkler with the added benefit of pomegranate—long revered for added vitality. Woo your sweetheart with this beauty, or better yet, enjoy it overlooking the spectacular romantic landscape of Carmondy-Mcknight with a picnic lunch and a book of poems.
Derby Sparkling Brut Rosẻ: This salmon-hued palate pleaser from Derby Vineyards has everything a girl could want—from the notes of raspberry and almond to the soft pretty bubbles.
Whether you’re looking to pop a bottle of bubbly, or pop the question, there’s nothing more fun or festive than going pink. And, if you’re looking to win someone’s heart for keeps, we suggest a gift membership to the Paso Robles Wine Club. With regular shipments of Central Coast wines throughout the year, you’ll never be out of that special someone’s mind—or heart.
