A reader sent me an e-mail last week asking if I could recommend a wine to go with breakfast in bed.
While he was looking to impress his wife on their up-coming anniversary, with Mother’s Day this weekend I’m betting many of you guys out there will also be looking to score some bonus points Sunday morning.
Eclectic is the best way to describe a breakfast menu. The fun part is that any early morning tipple should be light, fresh and very easy-drinking — the same flavour profile that loves unusual eats.
Though the selection varies across the country, a white wine made with the moscato grape is a perfect early morning sipper.
Slightly sweet and low in alcohol, they’re an a.m. friendly wine style gaining a solid following during the day as well.
I think sparkling when it comes to breakfast (or brunch) is best. Forget the orange juice and pick one with the union of fruit and wine already built in.
Chile’s Fresita ($12.95 – $15.99) is infused with the essence of real strawberries. The result is a berry bomb that explodes in the mouth and will add plenty of refreshment to your Mother’s Day.
