Sparkling wine is not just for celebratory toasts. It is also an exceptional wine for food pairings, so plan your menu accordingly. A sparkling white wine is quite nice with buttery and salty flavours. Think classic popcorn as a snack, or cream cheese on crackers topped with a mango chutney. Think also salami, stuffed mushrooms, smoked salmon, caviar or shrimp. On the sweet side, try it with shortbread. A sparkling rose is fantastic with a brie and prosciutto combo, salmon or fresh berries. It is also a great pair with potato chips and, for dessert, chocolate or strawberry cheesecake.

However you may enjoy your sparkling wine on New Year’s, perhaps the most important thing to remember is to not drink and drive. Please make accommodations or arrangements for your guests, or if you are the one out visiting make you sure plan ahead accordingly to ensure all can have a safe and Happy New Year.
