Saintly Sparkling Minis: Small Bottle, Big Flavour

You can experience the perfect balance of dry, fresh, and fruity with Saintly the good sparkling and Saintly the good sparkling rosé! Also available in a convenient mini, these premium single-serve bottles (200mL) pair with an array of cheeses, cured meats, and fresh fruits for a delectable combination. They’re the ideal choice for gifting, party favours, and moments of celebration – both big and small.

Jackson-Triggs Reserve Sparkling: A Versatile Crowd-Pleaser

This elegant sparkling wine boasts an aromatic bouquet of roses, lemons, tart green apples, and subtle biscuit notes. With bright acidity and clean mineral nuances, it pairs wonderfully with dishes ranging from grilled peach salad with basil and feta to lemon garlic linguine with shrimp. The versatility of this wine makes it a crowd-pleaser, suitable for a variety of palates and celebratory affairs, be it a sip-worthy brunch or a birthday bash. 

Sandbanks Sparkling Rosé: Smooth, Fruity, & Locally Grown 

If you're a fan of rosé, this one's for you! Sandbanks Sparkling Rosé offers a well-balanced profile with a clean, citrusy finish. Delicate notes of rose petals, wild strawberries, and blood orange flavours make it a refreshing choice. Serve it well chilled as an aperitif or alongside light, flaky fish like salmon. It's also a wonderful companion to fresh oysters, making it a go-to option for seafood enthusiasts. This local sparkling is sure to add a touch of elegance and effervescence to any holiday party, bridal shower, or girls’ night!

Jackson-Triggs Reserve Sparkling Moscato: Fresh, Vibrant, & Expressive

If you're in search of a vibrant and expressive sparkling wine, consider the delightful choice of Jackson-Triggs Reserve Sparkling Moscato. Bursting with tropical, floral, and citrus aromas, this sparkling wine dazzles the palate with lively citrus, juicy pineapple, and ripe peach flavour. Its crisp and fresh acidity pairs wonderfully alongside spicy curries, salami-wrapped melon, creamy Brie cheese, and indulgent desserts like crème brûlée. Regardless of the celebration – a romantic date night, soirée, or spontaneous toasts – this sparkling can elevate the moment.  

NEW BASK Lightly Sparkling Rosé: BASK in 0g Sugar Sparkling

BASK has taken their dry and fruity rosé and added some fizz for a NEW and refreshing sparkling rosé wine. It has a gentle fizz with delicate hints of red pear, watermelon, caramel and honey, and a touch of spice. At 0g sugar per ¾ cup (188 mL) serving, it’s a lighter option that’s perfect for any occasion! And since this sparkling wine is crisp, clean, and not overly sweet, it broadens the spectrum of delectable pairing possibilities, from light salads and fresh sushi to soft cheeses, brunch fare, and herbaceous chicken and vegetables.  

By the Glass or in a Sparkling Wine Cocktail 

A fun sparkling wine cocktail made with Sandbanks Sparkling Rose.

Sparkling wine is sensational on its own by the glass, paired with a variety of dishes, or when added to a sparkling wine cocktail. For a super simple cocktail, add a sugar cube and a few dashes of bitters to a flute glass. Then fill the glass with your favourite bubbly, garnish with a lemon twist et voilà!

Are you a Spritz fan? So are we! This version gives the traditional Aperol Spritz a fun twist by using Campari and sparkling rosé instead of Aperol and Prosecco. Equally delicious and satisfying, you can enjoy this easy-to-make Rosé Campari Spritz all summer long and even year-round when you want something zippy.

Ready to elevate your cocktail game? Why not try a tasty yet sophisticated Negroni Sbagliato! If you’ve never heard of a Negroni Sbagliato before, it’s basically a refreshing twist on a classic Negroni, replacing the gin with sparkling wine. In just three simple steps, you have the most delicious and bubbly cocktail with equal ingredients, so it’s also easy to remember!
