Vintage Rose Brut Cuvee * Krone * 2014

wp-image-1690466810

Today, I began my fourth year of teaching. I spent a week preparing my classroom, hanging my decorations, and planning lessons and activities so we could hit the ground running in our 5 minute mini-classes today. After introductions, we did “would you rather” as an ice breaker. In that spirit, would you rather… force yourself to wake up really early or force yourself not to go to sleep before 5 pm? Hit your 10,000 steps while clocking 45 minutes of exercise at work before 3:30 or be unable to wake up from your definitely-not-a-nap when you get home? Suffice it to say that I am beat! Cooking was definitely not an option tonight, so I hit up a couple places in Dundee to get some dinner and a glass of wine. I ended up going for Krone, a sparkling rose, at Baela Rose.

The best thing about this wine: super fine bubbles and nice flavor
Available at: Baela Rose in Dundee
By the glass: $10/By the bottle: $37
Pairs well with: life. Also, lighter foods or before dinner.

Hijo de Rubentis * Sparkling Rose * 2016

Finally, a patio night for me!! The past two weeks have been rather hectic. Family visits, taxi duty for the kids, the never ending yard work (well the hubs does that, I mostly “oversee” the process)… After a busy day, I grabbed my bottle of the Hijo de Rubentis sparkling rose, reheated some jambalaya, made a salad and headed to the tranquility of my magical back patio. I had been hoarding this wonderful bottle of Spanish sparkling rose for a while now and it was the perfect night.

Best thing about this wine: it’s a fun and interesting sparkling rose wine that is a must try for the summer
Available at: Corkscrew Wine and Cheese (it may be by special request at this time)
By the bottle: under $30
Pairs well with the patio, friends and left over jambalaya
Try this if you like: Gruet rose
