Hugo (Huber to Go) Rosé Sparking Wine

14 Dec

Think Pink for the Holidays

I came across this rosé sparkling wine while attending a wine tasting last week at Regency Wines in Fairlawn, Ohio (check them out – great selection).  I am always on the hunt for something off the beaten path and this sparkler was right up my alley.  To start, it is from Austria….yeah that’s what I said…Austria?  It doesn’t stop there my friends…it is made using a grape called Zweigelt.  This grape is the most widely grown red grape in Austria.  It is dry and very fruity with hints of fresh berries topped with a delicate acidity.  At $14 a bottle, it is a nice sparkling wine to drink with friends during this holiday season (or any time for that matter).  - Brandon
