My husband and I bought a house this month. It’s a beautiful four bedroom colonial about forty miles northwest of the city. We’re living in a quiet neighborhood in a fairly small town, with not much around but trees and wildlife. And bugs. Lots of bugs. Gross. But it has a nice sized backyard with a large stone patio on which I anticipate spending countless evenings relaxing with wine. It’s quite a change from the three room condo we’ve been crammed in for the last eight years.
I’ve spent hours contemplating the first bottle of wine in our new house. Due to excessive chaos over the first two days, as well as a very tight budget, our celebratory bottle came in the form of a California sparkler I’d bought a couple months back at a deep discount.
Gloria Ferrer was the sparkler we poured on our wedding day, and their Va di Vi was the bottle we opened to celebrate our new home. It was quite tasty– very fresh, a little fruity, not too dry, and just right for our small but memorable celebration.
I’m looking forward to many more fantastic bottles at our new address.
