So what is a celebration without a little bubbly? Here are a few tried and true sparkling wine suggestions from the Niagara Peninsula:

13th Street NV Cuvée Rosé $24.95
Dry wine made with 61% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, and 4% Gamay Noir, great aperitif and good for aging through 2018.

Trius NV Brut $27.95
Dry wine made with a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, winner of Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in Ontario Wines 2014.

KEW 2012 Tradition $29.95
Dry wine made with 73% Pinot Noir, 16% Pinot Meunier and 11% Chardonnay, Gold Medal winner at the 2014 All Canadian Wine Awards.

Try adding a half ounce or so of Icewine to your next glass of sparkling wine for a uniquely Niagara aperitif, Cheers!
