The closer we get to the holidays, the more I am excited to be able to catch up with friends and family. My freezer and fridge are full of food ready to be transformed into sumptuous meals and memories. My bar is stocked with beautiful bottles ready to be opened and popped. In my opinion there is so much to smile about this holiday season, and inspired by a recent tasting and immersive event here in Toronto, I am sharing some great options to have in your home this holiday season and for NYE.
During the hectic schedule we had last week, Annick and I had the chance to attend a top secret event here in Toronto to celebrate #JCBTakesToronto – and it was quite the evening! The Jean Charles Boisset line of bubbles and spirits took our breath away and made us realize that as 2018 comes to close, they are a fantastic way to cheers all that 2019 has in store for us!
It wasn’t just a beautiful event with delicious food & cocktails that had us smiling. It was that the following morning I was able to visit the LCBO Summerhill store to see the stunning #JCBTakesToronto pop-up area which speaks to the elegance and sophistication of the brand. Adorned in opulence, the space is open to the public and now offers you the chance to try the line of sparkling wines, wines, spirits and so much more before you pick up a bottle (or three) before the holidays.
You absolutely should check the LCBO website (click here) to sign up for the amazing free tastings that they are offering right up until the end of year. Complimentary with a few clicks, the experience is one that I can say is truly magical and showcases how this family changed the way bubbly is being made in France.
And of course if I had to pick a few favourites – for anyone looking to send me a Christmas present but not sure what to get me 😉 – the line of bubbles is a great gift for any host or to have a romantic night in with that special someone this holiday season. Immerse yourself in a whole new way of thinking about bubbles that will leave your taste buds dancing when paired with a delicious meal, a cheese plate with friends, or (my favourite) dark chocolate by the fire under the blanket cuddling.
Whether you just need a break on a busy day of shopping, need a last minute gift or two (I recommend picking up a candle and a copy of their book for the foodies in your life, the #JCBTakesToronto pop-up is a lot of fun!
