There’s no cork in this sparkling wine!

With a wine route map on her knee, Savvy Sommelier Debbie followed the country roads that lead to this new boutique winery in the depths of Prince Edward County.  Definitely worth the visit! Lighthall Vineyards owner & self taught winemaker Glenn Symons was eagerly awaiting her visit as he was excite to pour a glass of his soon-to-be-released sparkling wine.  This was Glenn’s new creation and you could see that he was ‘bubbling’ over with excitement.  With coaching from his friend Frederic Picard (winemaker at Huff Estates), Glenn has every reason to be proud of this bubbly. ..and his other wines too as he is making a big impression already!

Lighthall Progression Sparkling VQA 2011

This sparkling wine is different is several ways.  First, there is no cork, just secured with a bottle cap like closure.  And it is made with Vidal grapes that are often saved for dessert wines – yet this wine is far from being sweet!

 Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: There’s delicious refreshing acidity with aromas of citrus, pear & crunchy apple with a crisp finish.

Suggested food pairings: Served well chilled, this wine is lovely on its own, with oysters, or paired with light appetizers. Be sure to pack a bottle of this sparkling wine for your next picnic.

Cheers & Enjoy!
