No. 4 : Wine FIND of the Week
Here’s a weeknight sparkler that’s a blend of 40% Pinot Gris, 32% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay mostly from Willamette Valley, Oregon. Topped with a “crown cap” instead of a cork or screw top its an easy, yummy way to celebrate Halloween or any day. You may be more familiar with a crown cap on a beer bottle, but its’ actually used in the creation of Champagne! You can also buy this fun wine in a can as well.
