This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

Villa Teresa Organic Prosecco

Too often, we wait for a celebration to open a bottle of sparkling wine, and sparkling wine makers are trying to change that. In most wine cultures, sparkling is opened because it suits the weather, the meal, or the moment. We are a little behind in our casual sparkling wine drinking, but wines like Villa Teresa, with its resealable swing-style top, are trying to fix that so you can pop open a bottle tonight and not worry about losing the fizz by tomorrow. Celebrate a little every day!

Tasting Notes: Certified organic and made from 100% Glera grapes (like all Prosecco), this fizz offers notes of vibrant citrus, green apple, white peach, floral accents and a creamy mousse.

Enjoy With: Summer salads, charcuterie and fruit (prosciutto wrapped melon is perfect), seafood dishes and lightly sauced white meats, or soft cheeses like brie. It’s also great on its own, or as a base for a Mimosa or Spritz.

Style: Light and fruity sparkling wine.

Terroir/Region: The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards located high in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. Vines here are protected by the Dolomite Mountains to the north and still benefit from the warming effect of the Adriatic Sea, ripening balanced and expressive grapes for Villa Teresa Prosecco.

Producer: Vini Tonon was established in 1936 and is one of the leading wine producers in Northern Italy.  The winery is proud to have created the Villa Teresa range of wines, which are certified organic, offering a great wine for consumers and the planet.

Availability: Villa Teresa Organic Prosecco will be released for online ordering and into the Vintages section of your local LCBO on August 21, but some stores may have it on shelf already. Stock up to make sure you have some great organic bubbly for the last few weeks of summer!
