’Tis the Season at Black Door Wine Company

 We tasted through the delicacies and nuances of French Grower Champagne and quality sparkling wines at our Annual Champagne Tasting on Saturday, 11/5/15.

 In the new location you’ll find an impressive cache of bottles, bottles, & cases everywhere and stacks of unusual wines and vintages. You’ll find an array of wines  to complement your holiday feast this holiday season, be it a brisket, a holiday ham roast, roast leg of lamb or a basted and roasted bird in the spirit of the season. French Grower Champagne continued to flow with characteristic bubbles, customers spoke about New Year’s Eve and learned about selected wines from selected producers. We introduced expressive bubblies and sparking wines from around the globe including French  Grower Champagne from the Champagne region of France. These wines – so adept at complementing cavier (nothing says, “I’m fancy” like a small dollop of roe!) prosciutto, prawns, vegetarian enchiladas, and all that is festive for your new year gathering with family and friends. Cheers!

French Champagne and sparkling wine should absolutely be the first thing you drink in 2016 – it’s perfect to start the new year!
