Cheers & Welcome!

We are excited for this month of Merriment to begin!  What better way to kick it off than with a bottle of our favourite Prosecco?!

Vaporetto No. 8 Prosecco Brut 

About this winery

c_310x680_vaporetto-prosecco-brut-doc

Taking their name from the “Little Steamer” boats that used to run along the canals of Venice near the Prosecco DOCG, Vaporetto have their roots firmly planted in the north of Italy. Their wines are made from fruit grown on some of the finest cool-climate plots and vinified by the famous Bisol Family of producers, making wines with wonderful fruit clarity and poise.

Tasting notes

100% Glera. Straw yellow in colour with light green hints. Fruity baked apple, light hints of apricot and citrus peel, and a touch of smokiness. This wine is elegant with a creamy mousses and a fruity aftertaste with subtle floral notes. Thanks to the minimal residual sugar level, this wine is not only great on it’s own as an aperitif but pairs perfectly throughout a meal—even with delicate dishes. Best served chilled to 5-7°C.

Where to Buy?  This wine can be found through our Vine Life Wine Club Partners at  Highlander Wine and Spirits

What to Serve it With on a Quiet Friday Evening?

Italian Browned Butter Popcorn

Spice grilled salmon with mango-avocado salsa on a white plate

Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cup of Yellow Popcorn Kernels
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 Garlic Cloves – Whole and unpeeled
  • 1/4 Cup Finely Grated Fresh Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
  • Sea Salt to taste

In a large Stock Pot, over medium/high heat, melt Coconut oil and heat until it begins to smoke.

Add Popcorn Kernels and cover with lid – shake pot constantly to avoid burning while maintaining contact with your stove element.  Popcorn will begin to pop.  Pull from heat once popping slows down to be 3 seconds apart.

Meanwhile in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium/low heat with garlic cloves.  Allow to melt until it has begun to turn a toasted nut brown colour.  Remove garlic cloves and pour over hot popcorn.

Layer with grated cheese and sea salt to taste!

Then kick back and enjoy a relaxing evening of Popcorn & Prosecco!

Cheers!
