Happy Hour: Bubbly Sparkling Wine

The other day a lively lady named Anita visited me and she was bearing gifts: three bottles of Bubbly! No, that capitalized B is not a typo, she didn't bring me Champagne she brought me a new brand of sparkling wine called Bubbly that comes all the way from Slovenia. It's Slovenia's (say it out loud it's totally funtastic) premiere, estate grown, hand bottled sparkling wine. Bubbly comes in three chic varietals: Bubbly Bliss is made with Chardonnay grapes, the pink Bubbly Lovely is made with Pinot Noir grapes, and Bubbly Luck is made mostly with Welschriezling grapes. Bubbly has subtle fruit notes such as citrus, apple, and berries with an unusual and unique structure. It doesn't taste like champagne its much lighter and smoother. Anita not only gave me a bottle of each to sample she also gave me a few recipes to share with you ladies, so

Where oh where can you find Bubbly? It looks yum! I guess I'll have to start checking out some wine selections at various liquor stores around the city... I've never seen it before. --- "A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous." -Ingrid Bergman
