Last week at The Final Show, I had the best time getting to visit with some of you lovely people!! In addition to seeing some items from The Lovely Bee go home with some fabulous folks, one of my favorite aspects of the day was the bubbly!
My friends at Colony Wine Market helped me pick out two really great bottles of bubbles, each of which was from a different country of origin, that I got to sip on with cool people!
The first bottle was Joios Cava Brut. This is a Spanish sparkling wine with a beautiful color! It was golden like most bottles of bubbles, but the color was a bit richer than most. To me, it seemed to have a little more body than most bubbles. It was fantastic! It was the perfect balance of sweet yet not-too-sweet. Chad at Colony Wine Market described this as “a delightful value,” which I think is perfect! I want to say this bottle retailed for about $17ish…? So it wasn’t crazy expensive and it was a total hit with everyone!
The other bottle, Veuve de Vernay from France, was also so delightful! This Brut was lighter in color than the Spanish one, and was also a bit less sweet. This was the winner for the people who liked a more crisp, dry glass of bubs. It, too, was a delightful value in my opinion! It was a couple bucks less expensive than the Joios!
We paired these “champagnes” (although you can’t technically call them champagnes if they aren’t from the Champagne region!) with some fabulous cheeses and some Bark Thins! We had a smoked apple gouda and a jalapeño cheddar.
The Lovely Bee stuff + bubbles + cheese and chocolate + some of my favorite people… The Final Show was really fantastic! I had a genuinely great day! 🙂
For those of you who weren’t able to come by, it’s okay! You can still experience the highlights: Lovely Bee stuff at a discount and bubbles! Just hop on over to my etsy shop to get what’s left of the killer deals, then head over to Colony Wine Market to get these two bottles so you can have your own tasting!
