Wine has the ability to bring us together, elevate food pairings, and transport us to a vineyard far far away. That said, you can’t enjoy a glass of wine without, well, the glass. Then, for those without a Coravin aerator or who are decanting an entire bottle of wine, a stylish glass decanter like this one from Vista Alegre is a must have.

For couples who love to host or show off their fancy bar tools, we recommend this L'atelier du vin kit, wine chillers for indoor or outdoor use, and these beautiful trivets.

This delightful sparkling wine is a blend of three Champagne grapes from several harvests – approximately 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier, and 20% Chardonnay. This salmon-colored rosé smells of raspberry and redcurrant with flavors of fresh, juicy cherry. 

  2. The Prestige Rosé NV is unique in that it blends grapes from 2 to 3 different harvest and then conserved for 36 months in the cellar. Similar to the Brut Rosé, the grape breakdown is about 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier, and 20% Chardonnay. It has a similar salmon pink color and plenty of bubbles. You’ll smell candy and exotic fruits on the most. 

  3. Finally, the B. Stuyvesant Champagne Demi Sec NV. This popular bottle blends two Champagne grape varieties – 80% Pinot Meunier and 20% Pinot Noir – from several harvests. To the eye it is light and golden in color with plenty of bubbles. On the nose you’ll smell blood orange and a touch of hazelnuts, with the palate being round and generous with a nice sweetness.
