For the one who celebrates the little things
A Family for Champagne
Zach & JEn Pelka
Zach & Jen Pelka’s love for good Champagne runs deep. After working numerous restaurant gigs across Manhattan, Jen opened her San Francisco based Champagne bar, The Riddler, just a few years back, along with its highly anticipated second location (NYC) this past year. But the sparkles don’t stop there. In addition to her on-premise jaunts, the brother-sister duo will be launching their very own Champagne brand, Une Femme, early next year.
Like us, The Pelkas have a strong affinity for delicious, terroir-driven bubbles, especially during the holiday season.
For the One Who Celebrates the Little Things
Regarded as the king of sparkling wine, Champagne and the holiday season simply go hand in hand. These luxurious bottles of bubbles are produced in their namesake region of northeastern France, which is characterized by extreme climate conditions and signature chalky soils.
Here at Verve Wine, we tend to look beyond the bigger names and seek out smaller grower-producers that we can shed light on. Translation? We can’t get enough of small-production bubbles that are made responsibly, taste delicious, and seriously reflect the place from which they come. Know someone who loves to celebrate the little things? We’ve got just the bottle for them.
Nothing screams holiday festivity like a bottle of Champagne. For a pleasant present that pops, look no further than these bottles of festive fizz. Here are our top Champagne picks for gifts this holiday season - from hard-to-find producers to some of our personal favorites at the best prices of the year.
