As the end of the year approaches, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a glass of sparkling wine. Sparkling wine has been a popular drink at New Year’s Eve celebrations for many years, with the bubbles often representing excitement for the coming year. With so many wines to choose from, it can be hard to decide on which ones to bring to your party. Therefore, here are some of the best sparkling wines to enjoy this New Year’s Eve.
Prosecco: a must-have sparkling wine for New Year’s Eve
One of Italy’s most popular sparkling white wines, Prosecco, is made from succulent white Glera grapes grown in Friuli and Veneto’s rich and fertile soils. Sweet and fruity, with hints of citrus and jasmine, Prosecco is always a favourite among New Year’s Eve sparkling wines.
Tasting Notes and Wine Pairings: Prosecco offers rich flavours, from citrus fruits to peach, pear and melon. As such, it is the perfect choice for salty, savoury and sweet foods, such as desserts, fruit, appetisers, light seafood dishes and prawn cocktails.
Elevate your celebration with the fruity elegance of Franciacorta
Named for the wine-making territory south of Lago d’Iseo in Northern Italy, Franciacorta is a bubbly wine that is light and fruity. Considered a drink of national pride in its home country, this Italian wine is the perfect choice for end-of-year festivities.
Tasting Notes and Wine Pairings: Franciacorta combines the savoury aromas of fresh bread with the sweet taste of berries, almonds and hazelnuts. It can be paired well with mature cheeses, fish, roasted nuts and dried fruits.
Ring in the new year with the excellent Trento DOC
The Northern Italian province of Trentino is home to several regions famous for producing Trento DOC white and rosé sparkling wines. These wines are well-loved for their rich yet delicate flavours, offering a distinctive taste thanks to the unique climate in the region.
Tasting Notes and Wine Pairings: A mouthful of Trento DOC will offer a luscious mix of apple, nut, citrus and honey flavours with a hint of pineapple. This bubbly wine can be enjoyed with seafood dishes and poultry or on its own for a unique, flavourful journey.
