See Ya Later Ranch Brut has hints of B.C. orchard fruit, a creamy effervescence and is downright sexy with smoked salmon or fresh seafood.

Township 7 seven stars Polaris is named in honour of the North Star that has guided ships at sea for centuries. This B.C. sparkler is created using the traditional Méthode Champenoise style, and part of a larger lineup of sparkling wines, all exceptional.

Santero Asti is a sweet but not too sweet Italian sparkling wine, perfect for sipping Valentine’s Day in a tubful of heavenly scented bubbles. Alone or with an invited guest.

Friexinet Alcohol Free is from the popular Spanish brand and has been a work in progress since launching in 2011. Taste was tweaked in 2016, and in 2022 the sugar level was reduced from 54 grams to 38 grams. Not all bubbly has to be boozy, and we appreciate that.

Mission Hill Exhilarat!on Brut Rosé is a result of the B.C. brand’s winemaker and viticulturist selecting specific vineyard blocks stretching across Black Sage Road and Golden Mile Bench in Oliver. Since each one of their vineyards has a distinct microclimate, it lends unique flavour characteristics to the Pinot Noir used in this sparkling rosé, and the colour is downright dreamy.

Blasted Church OMG is a blend of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay that results in toasty brioche notes, citrus and green apple. Lovely with shellfish, soft cheese or roast chicken.
