Need a Sparkling Wine Fix? Try TWB The Wine Bar!

Sparkling wine is always fun to drink; and even better enjoyed with friends or family.  But sometimes you don’t want to open an entire bottle, or maybe you want to try a few different types of bubbles; prosecco and cremant perhaps?  Or how about an expensive bottle of Cristal and live like a rock star?  Whatever your reasons, I have the answer. Or should I say TWB The Wine Bar, a part of Provence Marinaside, in Yaletown has the bubbles for you by the glass.

I was recently invited to try their new sparkling wines by the glass.  They have 24 different sparkling wines from around the world, including BC.  Sommelier Joshua Carlson hand-picked each of the wines that are being poured, using a sophisticated wine preservation system, to allow these expensive bottles to be opened and enjoyed one glass at a time.

I did get to try a range of Champagnes; Cristal, Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, and Lanson, but also local bubble like Blue Mountain, and prosecco from Italy.  I have to admit that my favourite champagne of the evening was the Cristal.  TWB The Wine Bar is a small, intimate location, and does have a patio. I think it would be an excellent place to spend some summer afternoon and evenings.  Yes they do have food there too to pair with your bubbles.  Give it a try.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master.
