This is a great reception wine. It’s ideal for sunny afternoon food events and is a Best Buy.

This Columbia Valley, Washington State Methode Champenoise Sparkling Wine from 14 Hands Winery Brut has 11 % alcohol.  It’s a great buy for about $16, and this very easy to drink bubbly scored 15+ Dionysian points on their 20-point scale.

Their back label assumes people buying this wine seldom open sparkling wines and they go into much detail on how to open it.  It is fruity, not toasty, and seems to have the highest sugar level permitted to call it a Brut. t’s a nice way to get into sparkling wines.  In Vino Veritas.
