No New Year’s Eve party in Puerto Vallarta is complete without popping the cork on a bottle of bubbles at midnight.  And while French champagnes are easily found in Vallarta, why not start your 2017 with some Mexican sparkling wine instead?

The wine industry in Mexico continues grow and mature, gaining international recognition and accolades along the way.  Valle de Guadalupe, located in Baja California, is perhaps the most famous of the wine regions in Mexico, however for sparkling wine (known as espumoso), the best wines come from the State of Queretaro.  Here are several bottles worth a try for New Year’s Eve 2017.

Freixenet Viña Doña Dolores Chardonnay Brut Nature $250 MXP
Dry, yet with lovely fruity essence of pineapple, apple, pear and peach, this is our top pick.  Hide the bottle away and then wait for the look of surprise when you tell your guests that it’s not Champagne, but a Mexican sparkling wine.

Orlandi Semi Seco $259 MXP
For those that like a sweeter sparkle, this is a lovely bottle that pairs well with chocolate or a midnight dessert bar.

 Sala Vive Rose $365 MXP
Start 2017 off with rosé colored glasses, with this light and lovely sparkling wine that adds an extra touch of festivity to any party.

Sala Vivie Millesime $1800 MXP
What better way to welcome 2017 than in extravagant fashion with magnum of brut bubbles that is sure to make an impression on your guests?

And please remember, any good host has the number for a taxi service handy, to ensure all their guests arrive home safely.  From the team at Ron Morgan Real Estate, please accept our warmest wishes for a Happy New Year!
