We will welcome February 2018 with a delightful cava, Raventos i Blanc de Nit. This will be a year of welcoming each new month with longtime friends. This cava was a gift from one of the first friends we made after we moved to Boston. He's also one of the friends who has joined our sparkling resolution to toast each new month with a glass of bubbles.
Our friend discovered Raventos i Blanc de Nit at a Bauer Wine & Spirits tasting, loved it, and decided it was something we would also love. However, when he placed his order, there was only one bottle left in stock. Being the sweet person he is, he bought the bottle and gave it to us.
We enjoyed our New Year's bottle of a longtime favorite so much that we have decided to make 2018 a year of rediscovering some of our favorite sparkling wines from across the years. (It will also help us enjoy the wine gathering dust in our collection. In our attempt to live a healthier life, we are drinking far less wine than we used to and our collection of sparklers keeps growing.)
The last time we enjoyed this wine, we were relaxing in Provincetown and enjoying the views from a special place on a rainy day.
Whether you have seen these sparklers before or are new to our monthly feature, we'll be linking to our past posts on each of them.
Join us as we raise a glass to celebrate the month ahead.
