Why don’t people opt for bubbly at night? And not frothy showy overly expensive bottles of Cristal; I mean real bubbly — the sparkling kind that makes cheese taste sharper and doesn’t make your whole mouth feel like a sticky jar of jam should you accidentally drink the whole bottle. While it’s half off, give our Prosecco a chance tonight. Not only will its hints of pear and almond hit just the right refreshing note on a summer night, you’ll be sipping history. Carpenè Malvolti comes right from the source of real Prosecco, in Conegliano, a little Venetian castle town that happens to be the home of Italy’s oldest wine academy. If Champagne is a party in your mouth (all Las Vegas-style, complete with hiccups and an aftertaste of porn flyers), Prosecco is a lively dinner party — friendly, relaxing, and fizzy enough to make you giggle after a few.
Wine.Down and the half-bottle deal kick off at 6 pm tonight. See you there.
