Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut   

Sonoma County, California, United States

One of my favourite Californian sparkling wines year after year. This one isn't vintage dated. Toasty and fresh at a great price. Don't limit yourself to pre-dinner toasts and New Year's Eve with this terrific bubbly: drink it throughout the meal and throughout the year. In fact, why not make a resolution to do so now? Pair with fried fish, oysters and other shellfish.
