Thanks, bubbles!

Thanks and cheers to all the folks who joined us in toasting the holidays last night in the Goose's Enoteca!

The menu that Chris and the gang put together made for quickly cleaned plates. We'll share the recipes on the Goose web site soon. All of the bubbly bottles we sampled last night hit the mark but a couple that stood out--and are still available at the Goose!--were...

Fitz-Ritter Riesling Sekt: a dry, bubbly Riesling that sold out during the event but we have several cases arriving today!

Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc: a deliciously sophisticated bubbly with tart apple and wet mineral flavors; the half-bottle size is perfect for a couple to share before wine with dinner or to give as a holiday gift

Hugo Sparkling Rose: this dry bubbly from pinot noir and zweigelt, an Austrian red grape, got lots of attention for the tart fruit flavors and rosy mineral finish that make it an ideal sip for the season's richest dishes

Joel Falmet Champagne Brut Tradition: a true Champagne with classic yeasty citrus and a finish for star gazers...only a few bottles left
