Frankly Go Bragh: ST.PATRICK'S DAY - BEYOND THE BEER #1

Yes, St. Patrick's Day is typically thought of as a beer-drinking sort of holiday. So we've thought of some beer-ish suggestions. Yes, theyre made from grapes and they don' really taste like beer. But they don't taste like your typical Chardonnay either. But like beer, they're foamy, refreshing, and fun.

And of course, you can buy there at Frankly Wines.

ALTERNA-BEER #1

Ca dei Zago Prosecco Fondo NV (Valdobbiadene, Italy): No we can’t sell beer. So this isn’t exactly beer. But it is our “sort of beer-like” substitute. It’s actually prosecco, but unlike your typical prosecco, it’s not made in a pressurized tank. Instead, it’s fermented in the bottle, ‘col fondo’ (with sediment), the old-school, pre-tank method.It’s bone dry, very refreshing, slightly cloudy, more foamy than full-blown bubbly and tastes a little like…. beer.

Price: $19.99



ALTERNA-BEER #2

Donati Camillo Malvasia Dolce Frissante 2010 (Emilia Romagna, Italy): This wine comes off like a crazy cross between cider, beer and cream soda. It’s considered a sparkling wine, but it’s more foamy than full on sparkling. And yes, we have to tell the truth and admit that it’s the tiniest bit sweet. But don’t be scared. Because pretty much everyone who tries this stuff likes it.  Not just likes it, but loves it. Even becomes ridiculously addicted to it.
Admit it – you’re curious.

Price: $19.99
