Pull up a cloud, this is a little heaven on earth… literally. Cielo, translates into Heaven, and that is quite fitting for this Prosecco. This is our go-to this season. Drink it on its own or in a cocktail – we recommend an Aperol Spritz.

Wine EnthusiastThis fun sparkler opens with aromas of spring flower and white stone fruit. The frothy palate delivers Granny Smith apple and white peach alongside refreshing acidity.
Alain Corcia JulienasThis wine is the song that comes on and no matter what, you can’t help but to start dancing to. If you want to know, that song for me is Can’t Stop This Feeling By Justin Timberlake. This cru Beaujolais, made from the Gamay grapes, is irresistible and made by my friend, Alain Corcia. - Blake Leonard, Certified Sommelier Juliénas wines are earthy and weighty with a deep ruby red color with aromas of strawberry, violet, cinnamon, red currant and peony. The appellation sits in the far northwest of Beaujolais and due to the diverse terrain, Julienas wines are quite complex. Cru Beaujolais are some of the best valued wines in the world. This wine is well-made, balanced, food-friendly and just DELICIOUS! BLAKE'S PICK
Château-La-Dauphine Delphis FronsacFronsac is located right next to St. Emilion (where they make mega-pricey, sought-after wines.) My dad and I visited this winery this past summer. The vineyards are bio-dynamically farmed and all of their grapes are hand-picked. If someone at your dinner table likes Bordeaux, they’ll love this!
7 Castillos Crianza NVAt first sight, it has a medium-high robe with purple rims. On the nose, we can notice well-structured wood notes, which are provided by the young barrels. Also red fruits, spices and mineral aromas. On the palate, it is unctuous, glyceric and velvety. It is a tasty wine with a well-combined mature tannin. Very balanced wine with a very clean finish, where we notice roast, spicy and tobacco nuances. It has a long aftertaste. Food Pairings: Meat, game and cured cheeses. Optimum Serving Temperature: 16-18ºC.
Montespina VerdejoMontespino Verdejo is like adding lime to a flavorful meal or turning up the volume when the music is already blasting. On a scale of 1 to 10, this wine is a 12! Why I love it? It’s similar to a Sauvignon Blanc or stainless steel Chardonnay, with clean, crisp and refreshing notes. It’s full of citrusy fruit flavors (like lime) and has a high acidity, which makes it ideal with seafood. - Blake Leonard, Certified Sommelier
