An End-of-Summer Toast with Sparkling Wines

Sadly, summer may come to an end, but the cocktails don’t have to! As summer winds down, pop the cork on one, or all of these sparkling wines to say farewell to summer in style. Refreshing and light, sparkling wine is the perfect addition to any Labor Day Weekend BBQ or party on the beach, by the pool or at home.
Try the finest Prosecco from Italy with these two lovely bottles from Bisol.
Jeio Prosecco DOC (SRP: $17) is a Prosecco produced with grapes from the low-lying hills of the Veneto. This beautiful straw-yellow Prosecco has a refined balance between acidity and minerality. The floral bouquet of apple, apricot and fresh meadow flowers compliments the fruity flavors and dry finish.

Stand out from the crowd by pouring this pink bubbly before summer is over! Jeio Cuvée Rosé (SRP: $16) is a sparkling wine made from a combination of Merlot and Pinot Noir grapes from vineyards on the steep hills of the Veneto. A brief period of maceration gives the wine its brilliantly delicate pink color, excellent balance, and unique personality. Intense notes of roses accompanied by a delicate bouquet of fresh citrus and lychee compliments the light acidity and dry finish. It is superb as an aperitif, while at the table, it perfectly matches pasta dishes with vegetable sauces, white meat dishes, and all manner of seafood.

You can also look like a hero and bring one of these stylish limited-edition 2015 Chandon American Summer Brut & Rosé bottles with red, white, pink and blue nautical stripes.

Toast to the rest of summer Chandon style!
For three years, Chandon has brought playful and patriotic pops of red, white and blue to summer entertaining with its signature American Summer Limited Edition bottles and now pink. Best of all, they make for great table decorations and no gift bag is needed if providing it as a hostess present. Hurry though as they are available only now until Labor Day weekend!

Cheers to a Happy Labor Day Weekend!
