It’s that time of year when the invitations begin to roll in.  Wedding, Bridal Showers, Bachelorette Parties, Divorce Parties.  You name it, there is a Champagne to pair with it.  

Thanks to the Champagne Bureau the recommend these pairings.

The Shower – All of your girlfriends will enjoy the pink color and light, fruity flavor of a delicious rosé Champagne. Rosé pairs perfectly with subtle cheeses, smoked salmon, and fruit salad, as well as many other hors d’oeuvres. Plus, a half bottle makes a lovely party favor.

The Bachelorette Party – For your last night of freedom, why not liven up your celebration with a rich, full bodied Blanc de Noirs style Champagne? This Champagne is made using only black grapes and pairs well with full-flavored foods—perfect to get the party started!

The Rehearsal Dinner – It can be hard to please a room full of family, but a non-vintage Brut Champagne pairs well with almost anything and can help the evening go smoothly.

The Reception – On your wedding day, there’s no more perfect wine for your toasts than Blanc de Blancs Champagne. The name literally means “white of white,” a perfect complement to your gown. This delicate Champagne is made from only Chardonnay grapes and has a light, dry flavor, just right for when you want to dance all evening. Make sure to save a bottle to drink on your first anniversary!

The Honeymoon – When you’re finally alone with your loved one, it is time to cuddle up and share a rare Vintage Champagne, only made in years that produce the highest quality grapes. Just as your love has grown over time, these wines have been aged for a minimum of three years before they are released.

However, they never considered the Divorce Party.  I can happily say I’ve been married for almost 24 years but have celebrated with girlfriends when they’ve rid themselves of their “other half”.  Whether for the better or not, a new chapter is born and the wine to celebrate with is Happy Bitch Wines Rose.  This Rose wine is made with 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir grapes with a hint of effervescence, is not to dry and not to sweet.  The perfect way to begin the next chapter in your life.
