While sparkling wine makes a delicious wine to have with meals, it also makes a delightful drink for special occasions. While visiting Long Island, we visited Sparkling Pointe, a unique and elegant winery that concentrates on producing only sparkling wines.
Last night we enjoyed one of their sparkling wines with dinner. Sparkling Pointe Brut, produced using the methode champenoise, offered apple and pear nuances. Many wine enthusiasts would enjoy this wine. Consider enjoying it in celebration of Valentine’s Day or enjoy it with dinner. This sparkling wine would be great as an aperitif, with sushi or caviar. Currently Sparkling Pointe has five different sparkling wines available for purchase.
The winemaker at Sparkling Pointe is Gilles Martin who is enthusiastic about producing sparkling wines. He has worked at wineries in France, on the West Coast and East Coast.
