Track: "Night Flight" (Ken Rice)
Paired with: Lini White Lambrusco
Notes: Easy going and upbeat, this track makes me picture myself sipping a glass of bubbles while I'm cooking something special for the holidays and dancing around the kitchen. Right now my thoughts go to the Lini White Lambrusco, delicious and perfectly balanced, which will be kicking off our soon-to-be-released sparkling wine collection. We'll also be pouring it our Bubbles bash, Champagne Masquerade, coming up at the Westgate Hotel in San Diego on December 5 !
Track: "Baby Got Plans" (Ken Rice)
Paired with: Hungaria Sparkling Rose
Notes: This track is on the mellower side, and makes me think of that moment later in the evening when the party (or dinner) is winding down but you want to keep conversation going. It brings me back to bubbles, but this time with a bit of sweetness for the nightcap. (Frankly, it's also booty music, and what's sexier than sparkling rose?) This wine is another one that came my way when I was developing our sparkling wine collection, and it was a no brainer. And there's more available...)
Track: "Reggaes Back" (Ken Rice)
Paired with: Anima Negra AN/2
Notes: I'd say this is the funkiest track in the lineup. So, it needs some funky wine to go along with it! A fruit forward but earth-driven red is just the ticket - like Anima Negra's AN/2 from Mallorca. This wine has always impressed me with the balance of fruit and funk, and I had the pleasure of including it recently in our Sketches of Spain edition. And by the way, there are still a few sets left in the house!
