I’m a simple girl when it comes to the holidays: Keep the celebrations going and the prosecco pouring! While I’m a wine-o at heart, I find myself craving something a bit more bubbly to go along with all of the rich foods and sugary sweets that make their way into my kitchen come December…and prosecco always seems hits the spot!
My prosecco passion started when I was studying abroad in Venice, Italy during December and, waiting right next to the ice skating rink in a small piazza, was a young woman who sold cacao-powdered truffles and prosecco by the glass (well, disposable shooter). While kids were scampering off in search of ciaccolata calda, I tried the odd sweet and bitter combo and surprisingly loved the contrasting tastes and textures. Since then, I’ve been on the hunt every year for the perfect prosecco to add to my personal stash, as well as to my ‘hostess gift’ arsenal.
Well, I am happy to announce this year’s prosecco-of-choice for the holidays! Lunetta (“Little Moon” in Italian) has a beautiful prosecco that will pair perfectly with all your holiday dishes and hors d’oevres this year. Plus, the brand has already seen amazing success in the US, holding the title of America’s #1 Italian Pinot Grigio and the #1 imported Pinot Noir. So, rest assured that Lunetta knows what they’re doing when it comes to wine – even the bubbly kind!
Since each bottle is super wallet-friendly ($12), you may as well stock up on a few bottles to bring to your third (fourth…fifth…) viewing of The Holiday with your girlfriends, or to bring as a hostess gift to a holiday party. To up the chicness of the gift, buy a unique wine carrier to stash your Lunetta in.
