Ballatore Sparkling Wine Bargains

More Bubbles For The Buck

Ballatore Gran Spumante

Spirito Ballatore, the winemaker behind this incredible sparkler, has won hundreds of awards for his well-priced sparkling wine, since he introduced it in 1984.

It’s not completely dry, but it’s not sweet either. Most of us say we like “dry” wine, but we really prefer a little sweetness to round out the flavors. We just think “dry” is more sophisticated. Get over it. Try this low-risk, high-reward sparkler.

Ballatore Spumante was introduced in 1984.
Since that time, Ballatore has consistently
been awarded top honors in some of the
nation’s most prestigious competitions. To
date, Ballatore Spumante holds over 250
awards.

The winemaker, Spir Ballatore, styled this
delightful sparkling wine in a manner similar to Spumantes from the Asti region of Italy, with a proprietary blend of specially selected California grapes.

The delicate freshness of Ballatore makes it a most charming sparkling wine. Inviting aromas reminiscent of ripe peaches and apricots combine to form a delightfully complex bouquet. Well-balanced and rich in
varietal character, this sparkling wine refreshes with melony flavors and a crisp, clean finish.

While traditionally enjoyed with desserts, Ballatore is an elegant and festive companion to any occasion.

CORZO: THE EVOLUTION OF TEQUILA

CORZO: THE EVOLUTION OF TEQUILA

Triple-Distilled, Highland Agave, CORZO® Defines Modern Luxury

tequila

One of today’s fastest-growing brands, CORZO® Tequila offers luxury with credentials, a contemporary image that defines the concept of modern luxury and a legitimate quality story that distinguishes it from other spirits in the category. Created to take the category to a new level of refinement, CORZO Silver tequila is made from the finest ingredients and uses a unique triple distillation process for an impeccably clean, ultra smooth finish. CORZO Reposado and Anejo are the only tequilas to be mellowed prior to a third distillation resulting in a double mellowed, triple distilled spirit with twice the Agave of most other brands. Demonstrating a commitment to excellence unprecedented in its category, CORZO symbolizes a progressive step into the new world of contemporary luxury spirits.

TEQUILA MODERNIZED: THE CORZO PRODUCTION PROCESS

Each bottle of CORZO is 7-12 years in the making using an advanced, hand-crafted process which complements the brand’s modern style. To begin, CORZO uses twice the agave compared to most other tequilas. Though more expensive, these highly aggressive “cuts” are made to isolate only the purest heart of the distillate. This requires a larger stock of 100% Blue Agave that is sourced from Los Altos de Jalisco, an area of Mexico recognized as the premier agave growing region in the world. The nutrient-rich soil and higher altitude produce agave with higher brix/sugar content, which creates CORZO tequilas’ sweeter, fruitier notes of flavor. tequila-2
