View the new year with rose colored glasses

On the Goose's twitter feed and facebook page we've been featuring a bubbly a day as we get ready to toast the New Year. Wine Club members get 10% off any bottle featured this week!

Today's bottle is the Bortolotti prosecco, a hand-harvested and truly artisanal bubbly from Italy's Veneto. And it's part of a refreshingly festive cocktail that will help us see the New Year in its best possible light.

We're looking at 2011 with Rose Colored Glasses thanks to Sence Rose Nectar, the not-too-sweet extract of Bulgarian roses. Leonardo da Vinci drank a similar brew, though we me never know Mona Lisa's new year resolutions.

While Bortolotti prosecco is interesting enough to enjoy solo, pick up a bottle of Sence at the Goose to ring in the New Year:
