Sparkling wine as we’ve learned isn’t just for special occasions. It can pair with lots of f ood choices and a glass to cool off in the warm months is fantastic! However, at the Toad Hollow tasting room, we’re taking exception and making a big deal out of our sparkling wine, Amplexus for Mother’s Day!
Amplexus is a Crémant Brut Sparking wine made from Chardonnay, Mauzac and Chenin Blanc that we source from the Limoux district in the southwestern part of France. It is fresh and bright with stone fruit aromas and flavors. It is a sparkler that you can enjoy every day, but we’re making it even more appealing by offering a 10% discount on Amplexus the 11 th , 12 th and 13 th of May in honor of the Mother’s Day weekend. Along with the discount we’re offering a 2-for- 1 tasting fee at the tasting room the same three days.
Here is an easy yet gorgeous Amplexus cocktail you can prepare to impress Mom!
1 oz. puréed strawberries
3 oz. chilled Amplexus
1 fresh strawberry, sliced, to garnish
Pour strawberry purée into a chilled champagne glass, and top with Toad Hollow’s Amplexus.
Garnish glass with fresh strawberry.
