Pampelonne Sparkling Wine Cocktails
Wine in a can is not a new concept, but Pampelonne’s concept of offering classic European sparkling wines in a can is fresh. Inspired by a beach in St. Tropez by the same name, Pampelonne has created tasty sparkling wine cocktails using fine French wine to capture the essence of summertime: carefree, playful days that call for something refreshing, light (only 120 calories per can!), and portable.

For those who read “sparkling wine cocktails” and are ready to click on, sit tight. We’re not talking about obnoxiously fruity, sickeningly sweet wine coolers here. Inspired by France and classic French wines, Pampelonne’s mission was to create canned wines that are crisp, dry and not cloyingly sweet. Cocktails to be samples include Rose Lime, Watermelon Americano and Blood Orange Spritz.

La Marca Prosecco
In the heart of Italy’s lush Prosecco region, the La Marca Trevigiana zone grows the revered glera grapes which is used to make this delicately flavored wine. With delicate, golden straw color and lively effervescence, La Marca Prosecco is one of the best with aromas of fresh citrus, honey and white flowers. The palate is fresh and clean, with flavors of ripe lemon, green apple and grapefruit framed by mineral undertones.

Astoria Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superior DOCG
Tiny and continuous perlage, light straw yellow in color. Elegant, clean-cut and fruity aromas lead to a pleasant, harmonious palate.

Allegrini – Palazzo Del Torre – Veronese
The wine is made using an innovative take on the ‘ripasso’ technique. Most of the grapes are vinified at harvest time, while the rest are set aside to partially dry. In January, the wine blended with the juice from the raisined grapes undergoes a second fermentation. The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese.
