Happy Thanksgiving: Sparkling Selections of Washington Wine and Cider

Posted on: November 27th, 2014 by

washington sparkling wine and ciderMy two themes for Thanksgiving refreshment? The first is Washington State. The other? Bubbles.

I couldn’t pass up the chance to snag a magnum of Syncline’s Scintillation Rosé, hailing from the picturesque Columbia Gorge. A big bottle is the way to go for a large crowd.

And, of course, how could I forget Finnriver from the Olympic Peninsula? I love their Artisan Sparkling Cider, which is made in the same method as Champagne. So light, elegant, and refreshing. Perfect for greeting your guests or throughout the meal. The cider’s modest 8% alcohol means it’s a good choice for a long day.

And hey, don’t forget I spent a month at Finnriver Farm and Cidery. Read all about my stay there. (It was magical and memorable.)

Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful to have a super-fun family who will be happy to enjoy these bubbles with me.

Magnum of sparkling wine, y’all. So I got two bottles of sparkling cider to make it even. And, yes, that’s my reflection, light switch, and pile of books.

    Happy Thanksgiving my friend! Next year I am coming to your celebration–here with my family in Michigan where the only thing with bubbles is Miller Lite….
