2022 New Year’s Eve Special – Episode #109

Browse By

Time for the 2022 New Year’s Eve Special. I’ve got 3 sparkling wines from different parts of the world. Some may be harder to find than others. First is the NV El Bajio sparkling wine from Mexico. Second is the 2013 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Sekt. The last wine is the NV Champagne Chapuy Tradition Brut. Definitely a cool line up. Come check it out and hopefully you’ll be able to find some of these to toast in the new year!
