Don’t save the bubbles for best!

Posted by [email protected] on September 11, 2018

At No.1 Family Estate we think that all too often sparkling wine is reserved for special occasions.

We prefer to live life as Madame Lily Bollinger did, she is famous for saying, “I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it, unless I'm thirsty.”

Here are three reasons, why we believe that bubbles should be enjoyed more frequently:

  • There’s always something to celebrate – Yes, life is full of milestone events… Significant birthdays, engagements, weddings, new family members. But there is so much more to celebrate in life than occasions. How about celebrating a mid-week catch up with your girlfriends? A change in season is certainly worth raising a glass for. We’d even endorse celebrating the fact that you’ve managed to find five minutes peace and put your feet up at the weekend. Celebrating the simple pleasures in life is just as important as celebrating the big moments!
  • A glass of bubbles makes everything feel special – A mid-week supper of fish and chips becomes a gourmet feast with a glass of something sparkling. And who doesn’t want to feel special more often? We can thoroughly recommend the life-enhancing properties of a glass of No.1 Cuvée!
  • Life is short – Buy the shoes, wear the fancy frock, eat the cake and drink the sparkling wine! Not necessarily in that order. There’s an old Chinese proverb that says “Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.” We couldn’t agree more, bottoms up!
