Sea Breeze Sparkling Wine

16th July 2020

Sea Breeze Sparkling Wine

Sun, Sea and Sand, a perfect combination, but for some reason I’ve always felt that it’s been missing something, a fizzy drink maybe? Sun, Sea, Sand and Sparkling Wine, the new perfect combination.

The Sea Breeze category is very popular and well liked among the Glass of Bubbly Judges, with it even being a favourite of renowned Champagne Author Michael Edwards.

Can you drink alcohol on a Beach? Yes, unless the beach says otherwise, as long as you are oven 18 years old in England, you can enjoy a drink on the beach, but keep in mind that the Police can take your can or bottle, whether opened or not, if they believe that you could become reckless, endanger yourself or others.

How do you keep your bottle of Sparkling Wine chilled on a sunny beach? A bottle of Sparkling Wine under the sun will begin to heat up quickly, but an ice bucket won’t work for very long, so an ice/cool box is going to be your best bet to keep your Sparkling Wine cooled throughout the day, to help keep it coolest, make sure you have an ice/cool box which is big enough to fit a bottle of Sparkling Wine in.

Sea Breeze

When you taste this wine you will imagine yourself standing on the beach and tasting those tiny sea drops in the air.
