Strawbellini

by Geoff Nicoll, Director of Wine & Spirits

Rebello StrawbelliniAdmittedly, we are a little slow on the draw, but none-the-less, we would be remiss if we didn’t draw attention to a fun and delicious little sparkling wine that just arrived. Valentines Day is but a recent memory, but why wait for a numbered square on a calendar to show your sweetheart how much you care. Rebello Strawbellini is just what the doctor ordered. This frolicky, sparkly little gem combines the subtle delicate sweetness of the muscat grape with the delectable freshness of strawberries. While many find it appealing to add berries to their favorite bubbly, Rebello has created the perfect marriage for you. Not too sweet, but just enough to be really delicious. We have encountered many fruit flavored beverages, but this one sets a new bar as it is infused with real strawberry wine. It’s the real deal and is tasty as an aperitif, with brunch, as a Springtime sipper, and with fruit desserts. To boot, it has won many awards including a double gold in the San Francisco Wine competition. Pick up a bottle today and let us know what you think.

    After coming across another delectable gem by Rebello, a strawberry and apple hard cider called Cheeky Rascal, I decided to try some of their wines, and managed to find the Strawbellini. I’m usually not a huge fan of white wines, but this is just divine. Even my boyfriend, who is most decidedly -not- a wine drinker, likes it.

      Thank you for your comments. I am glad you found it as tasty as we did. The cider is scheduled to land midsummer, we will keep an ear to the ground for its arrival. Sounds intriguing.
