It's that time of year again – time for our holiday bubbles! Every year we get a special selection of holiday wines and champagnes to make your parties festive and bright. All of these are in limited quantities, so buy early for the upcoming holidays – don't forget about New Year's!
Vin Hunter Prosecco
Our Prosecco is hand-selected by Vin Hunter, Heinen's Wine Scout, and I feel this year's is the best-tasting, highest-quality and best-value Prosecco we've ever carried. It's delicious by itself with light foods, or as a base for a true Italian mimosa. We sell out of Vin Hunter Prosecco every year, so make sure to place your order before it's too late!
Chandon Holiday Blanc de Noir
$16.99 – Save $8
You don't find super tasty bubbles from California at this price very often. It comes in a cool holiday package that makes it great for gift-giving, and it's a great value at under $20. This is the best bubbly for shrimp cocktail!
Anna de Codorniu
$9.99 – Save $6
This Spanish Cava is the best bottle of bubbles under $10 I've ever tasted. This is the one to buy by the case for parties. It goes great with everything!
Albrecht Brut Rosé
$19.99 – Save $3
A great value Rosé from Alsace, France. You simply can't find a Rosé sparkler of this quality anywhere else for under $20. I'd recommend pairing it with soft French cheeses, and it's unbelievable with Heinen's spiral sliced ham. This might be the one to serve at the big family dinner!
Perrier-Jouet Nuit Blanche
$54.99 – Save $25.00
Special bubbles for special occasions! A little hint of sweetness allows this to be served with food or by itself, but I think it's great with light cheeses and light desserts.
Mumm Cordon Rouge
$34.99 – Save $25.00
Here's an unbeatable value for true French champagne! It's a luxurious accompaniment with fresh shellfish, like crab or lobster tails.
There you have it: Heinen's holiday bubbles. Don't forget to place your order before these fantastic holiday treats sell out. And as always, Heinen's wine associates are available to help! See any of our wine associates for more pairings and serving tips.
