In case you hadn’t heard (ha, ha), yesterday was Pink’s 1st birthday. Since I’ve been wanting to take my mom out to a ladies’ lunch since before Pink was even a passing thought, we figured we’d get together to celebrate everyone’s wonderfulness on this special occasion. As I’ve mentioned in the past, Wente Vineyards is one of the most lovely spots in the East Bay, so we ventured out to the grapeland. And we weren’t disappointed…
This Week’s Spotlight: Wente Vineyards Brut Sparkling Wine
My mom is partial to the bubbles, so we were very pleasantly surprised when our waiter arrived with a glass for each of us (courtesy of the lovely folks at Wente who knew I’d enjoyed and shared my Entwine experience). I don’t know if it was because it eased the pain of me watching Pink throw zucchini on the ground of an upscale restaurant, or because it was just so darn smooth and easy to drink, but it disappeared rather quickly. (Funny, so did my decadent, delicious meal.)
While sparkling wine isn’t my go-to drink, it sure does make a celebration more festive. Especially when it’s as tasty as Wente’s was. Cheers!
What occasion in your world calls for a glass of bubbly? Thursday afternoon? A birthday party? Good news? (All of the above?)
Disclosure: While the sparkling wine was comped (a very fun surprise!), it was not with the expectation I would write about it. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.
