It doesn't always have to be a birthday or special occasion to pop a bottle of bubbles... here are some unusual food pairings that will have you poppin' bottles on a Monday!

fried chicken gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing sparkling gillie and marc wine

Fried Chicken...the crisp acidity and bubbles cut through the richness of the fried chicken! 

prosciutto gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing  sparkling gillie and marc wine

Prosciutto... the perfect balance to showcase the creamy, salty-sweet flavours of prosciutto with the crisp fruit flavours and high acidity of bubbles.

fried mushroom gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing  sparkling gillie and marc wine

Fried Mushrooms... like with fried chicken fried mushrooms and bubbles make the best of friends! The earthiness of the mushroom is complimented by the fruity notes found in our Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay. 

mac and cheese gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing sparkling gillie and marc wine

Mac & cheese... guilty pleasure made a little more special. Especially more delicious with a softer creamery cheese with flavour such as smoked gouda. 

rocket salad gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing sparkling gillie and marc wine

Pear, parmesan and rocket salad... now for a healthier alternative! A crisp pear, big curls of parmesan and herbal, earthy rocket, topped with some pine nuts and a vinaigrette is a match made in heaven with a bottle of bubbly! 

fish tacos gillie and marc wine unusual bubble pairing sparkling gillie and marc wine

Fish Tacos...Taco Tuesday, or every day, just got a little posher!
