Do you love fine wines? If so then you’re not alone! After all, who doesn’t love a nice cabernet at the end of the day, or else a delicious glass of Sauvignon Blanc? But of course, the best way to drink a fine wine is in celebration, which is why today we’ll be taking a look through some of the most popular fine wines to celebrate with. Whether your first child has just graduated from university, or you’re celebrating your best friend’s engagement, these delicious wines will definitely help to heighten your spirits.
A Sparkling Summer
It’s the obvious place to start, but no list of celebration wines would be complete without a mention of sparkling wines. Whether it’s a crisp Cava or a classic Champagne, sparkling wines have well and truly earned their reputation as the best wines to celebrate with. After all, there’s nothing quite like sitting in the gorgeous sunlight, scenting the summery smells and sipping on a glass of bubbly.
The Best Of Beaujolais
If you’re taking a trip to find the best fine wines around the world then you’re practically obliged to stop off in France, and when it comes to celebrating, you just can’t go wrong with a bottle of Beaujolais. Primarily made from Gamay grapes, Beaujolais is a light-bodied red, full of fruity flavours that will pair perfectly with any cheese board you can find.
While people often tend to lean on white wines for their celebrations, if you’re planning to go red then Beaujolais is definitely the way to go. It has a luscious rich taste without overpowering the palette and is an excellent way to start the party.
South African Specials
Last but certainly not least, if you’re really wanting some fine wines that’ll stun your guests and leave everyone in an excellent mood then South African wines should absolutely make the list. Less cliche than your French wines, South Africa is nonetheless known for having some of the most flavoursome and rich vintages in the world. From its gorgeous Chenin Blanc to the truly sublime South African Pinotage, you’ll find no other country with such a broad and varied selection of beautiful wines.
Ultimately though, however you choose to celebrate, make sure to do it with a drink you can truly appreciate. Remember that fine wines are always best when shared amongst friends and loved ones. Why not ask your family and friends which wines they prefer and together you can explore a whole world of gorgeous grapes?
Perhaps we’re a little biased, but here at Perfect Cellar we believe there’s no better way to celebrate than with fine wine and fantastic company!
