Chateau Renaissance Wine Cellars Raspberry Sparkle

Maybe this doesn't sound like you. But for the holidays, we usually serve Champagne or a domestic sparkling white. On early occasions, we serve Mimosas. Some times a kir royale in the afternoons, but more often than not, we like it yeasty and brut....extra brut.

But this holiday season we served something a little different. We served the Raspberry Sparkle from Chateau Renaissance Wine Cellars with some cheese after the main course recently. Much like an Italian Bracchetto, it's tart, sweet raspberry flavors offered a a wonderful and differnt flavor to juxtapose to the savories we offered with crackers and assorted breads.

It's fun and different. If you're anywhere near the Union Square Farmer's Market, take a look. If Chateau Renaissance Wine Cellars is there, take a shot, and try something different.
