What Sparkling Wine To Drink At The Top Of A Mountain?
1st December 2021
Slovenian is a land of many wonders, from the high peaks to the deep caves, Slovenia has a lot to explore for a small country of just over 2 million people and an area of 20,271 km², despite its size and fairly unknown popularity, Slovenia should really be country that you check out, producing some outstanding Sparkling Wines, with some taking home Trophies and many taking home Gold Medals, thousands of caves to explore, culture and food and of course mountains to climb.
Once you reach the top of that mountain, which you eventually will, you’re going to want to celebrate, and what better way to celebrate by tasting the stars in your glass, and I think Tiefengraber’s Evana Label is the perfect bottle to enjoy, not just because of the prominent mountain on the label, but because of all the wonders it holds inside the bottle.
Tiefengraber – Evana
This Sparkling Wine is from Slovenia and has a beautiful image of a mountain on its label, this has been a Sparkling Wine that I have wanted to try for a while now, I was drawn in by the label and to my pleasant surprise, the aromas and flavours that I had imagined the Sparkling Wine would deliver, just by looking at the label, were experienced in the glass.
