Blueberry Steel Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

After a long hard day working, whether it be in the mines, on the road or behind a desk, we all need to rewind and rejuvenate our energy, lots of us like to have a good drink after a long day, so why not combine that drink with a tasty and healthy character?

If you like blueberries, then this cocktail will be absolutely perfect for you, if you don’t like blueberries, then I’m not quite sure why you’ve clicked on this article, but whatever the case, this Blueberry Steel Cocktail will taste extremely delicate, wonderfully healthy, and expertly bubbly with that much-needed alcohol touch.

The Sparkling Wine – Borgo Conventi

Borgo Conventi has been taking care of its vineyards since 1975. The land in which Borgo Conventi is located was once owned by a noble landowner, where the first monastery in Farra d’Isonzo was built, today the land is covered by vines and the Borgo Conventi estate.

In 2001 the estate was acquired by the Folonari family, this brought in a higher production level without trading in any traditions, currently, the winery produces over 300,000 bottles of wine each year.

I had the pleasure of visiting Borgo Conventi a few years back, the estate is a mixture of money and comfort, keeping its nostalgic history while incorporating new and modern sets. We travelled up into their vineyards where we enjoyed a bottle of their Sparkling Wine. Currently, my opinion stands that the best way to enjoy a bottle of Sparkling Wine is in the vineyard that grew the grapes and with the people who produced it. The wine itself won’t physically taste any better, but you’ll be so high on the moment that your mind will make it taste like the angels have blessed you with this Glass of Bubbly.
