Pirate Fizz Cocktails

Pirate Sparkling Wine Cocktails

Thud, thud, thud, each time getting louder, a wooden leg on wood floors, a silence then fills the air as the thudding stops, you hold your breath, so not to make a sound, a handle is turned and a creaking door slowly opens, the light is against you, you see only a dark figure in the doorway, big in stature, the figure then steps inside and boldly shouts… I found the Rum!

Cheers fill the room, it’s now time to craft the cocktails, sing songs and talk about buried treasure.

It’s A Pirate’s Life For Me

Tell me weary traveller, have you come far, I haven’t seen you around these parts before.

Pop The Bubbles And Spread The Fun, Ye Maties

The Szigeti Winery was founded in 1991 by Peter Szigeti, located in Gols in the Austrian state of Burgenland. Peter and his cellar master have both spent a lot of time ensuring that his Sparkling Wine meets the highest quality and captures the varietal characteristics of the grape varieties.

Interesting Fact: When looking at their Prestige line you will notice an emblem of a Knight, this is a tribute to the Knight of Gols.
