Thirsty Thursday Cocktail of the Week

 
Thirsty Thursday Cocktail
We're all stuck at home, but that doesn't mean we can't wine about it.

Bella Rossa Bellini
The Bellini originated in Venice, Italy in 1948. Traditionally, it's made using Prosecco, but we put a Noisy twist on it by replacing Prosecco with Bella Rossa, a sparkling sweet rosé.

Ingredients: 2 oz fresh peach purée, 4 oz Bella Rossa 
Preparation: Pour peach puree into a chilled glass or champagne flute. Add chilled Bella Rossa on top and stir mixture gently. 
Serve straight up.
Optional: Garnish with a fresh peach slice

Virtual Connecting - Our New Social Hour

 
Remember the good ole days when we used to meet our friends & families at bars or restaurants to catch up and unwind?  With no family gatherings, social settings or lunch dates, we all have to entertain ourselves somehow during these trying times & get our much need social interactions virtually! In my household we have been using this down time to enjoy connecting with family and friends for virtual happy hours with apps like FaceTime and Zoom!   
 
FAMILY CHATS

It has been so much fun to get my entire family on face-time and have happy hour with them. At least once a week our family has been connecting around the 5'o clock hour, and it usually makes for a great break from reality! I highly suggest setting up a weekly happy hour! 
HERE ARE SOME FUN IDEAS:
  • Call your Grandparents
  • Call your Parents / Siblings 
  • Let your little one's call their cousins and converse with them 
  • Breakfast date with Mom or Dad - Share a cup of coffee with them (yes we know it may have booze in it, and that is okay too) 
 
COCKTAIL KINGS & QUEENS
My friends and I have also had a great time connecting from different parts of the country via FaceTime and Zoom and having our own happy hours. Some of us are hiding from kids in the other room, barbecuing outside with the boys, and some of us just looking to VENT to each other during this time of quarantine!

Its has been a great source of entertainment and stress relief (we typically have wine on hand, definitely recommended by all lol)!

Cheers! I wish you all happiness, health & great wine...and if your running low I know an amazing winery that can help with that 👇😉

Wine Of The Week - Tighty Whitey White

One of my favorite quotes from Noisy Water Winery's winemaker, Jasper Riddle, should be carved into stone for all posterity:
 
“We're making alcohol. Let's not take ourselves too seriously.”

Okay, so maybe it won't find a place in the Library of Congress. But then, your favorite Netflix binge probably won't, either. And that's okay.

Life is full of choices. And most of them are a choice between something good and something else just as good. Dry or sweet. Red or white. Wine or... wine. Boxers or briefs.

What? Oh, I mean “tighty whiteys”.

Although we at Noisy Water Winery take the actual making of our wines very seriously, it's important to remember how to have fun. And one thing we do take seriously is having fun. Tighty Whitey White is nothing if not fun... one look at the label will tell you that!

Produced since 2014, Tighty Whitey White is one of those wines that can claim the title of being an All-Around wine. It's one of our takes on Pinot Grigio: dry, but not too dry, so it appeals to palates across the spectrum. It's crisp, but not sharp; fruity, but not overly sweet. Honey, a hint of spice, a burst of orchard fresh peach make it smooth but refreshing. What better way to encourage sweet wine drinkers who are a little intimidated by dry wines to venture into new territory?

Stripping it all down: back to when we only had a few oak barrels and our tighty whities.
Get Tighty Whitey

I love wine, but I'm not a scientist; I can't tell you a lot about the process of making wine, but I can tell you why I like it. And I like Tighty Whitey because it doesn't make you work too hard to find out what it pairs with best. It's a wine you can feel comfortable with, like your favorite pair of shoes or sweats. It's as easy to sip as a complement to a briny, seafood entree as it is to enjoy with a snack of chips and salsa while relaxing on the back porch on a summer night. While it screams “summertime in a glass”, who couldn't use a glassful of summer in the dead of winter, along with a bowl of popcorn?

So when you've had one of “those” days – when all you want is to just shrug off the outer shell and strip down to just being yourself after spending the day being everything to everyone around you – Tighty Whitey White's got you. Even if you prefer boxers.

Cheers,
Amy

Why We Drink Sparkling Wine During Celebrations

 
The act of popping bottles to celebrate is nothing new. We drink bubbly to ring in the new year, toast a bride and groom, or to commemorate an achievement. You may have even purchased a bottle of our Bella Rossa or Ruidoso Bubbly for the occasion. But have you ever wondered why this is the norm?
 

It’s important to first understand what sparkling wine is and how it’s categorized before we can answer this question. Most of us think of immediately think of champagne when we think of sparkling wine. But for a wine to truly be a champagne,  it must come from the Champagne region in France. There is also a specific method to winemaking in Champagne, where bubbles are created during a “second fermentation” that occurs in the bottle.
 
This was initially thought to be a flaw of the wine, but once producers tasted it they found that it was delicate, refreshing, and crisp. It then became thought of as a high-class beverage, flipping the origins of the once “ruined” beverage on its head in the 15o0s. Other sparkling wines on the market are made by adding carbon dioxide under pressure in large tanks. This is the more affordable method out of the two. However, it took nearly a century for chemists to uncover the right amount of sugar to avoid an explosion when making sparkling wine. 
 
After this process was perfected, European royal courts began drinking it at parties as the supreme mark of sophistication. Sparkling wine was even marketed to have positive effects on the consumer’s wit and beauty. 

Once sparkling wine became a luxury, it was used to christen ships, celebrate the joining of families at weddings, or during religious events such as baptisms. The late 1960s winner of the Le Mans race is thought to be the first to celebrate his win with champagne, an act that many athletes participate in after a win today. 
Sparkling wine’s cultural significance throughout history makes it the perfect celebratory wine. The pop of the cork symbolizes an end and a beginning that everyone can relate to. When you crack open a bottle of bubbly, it overflows much like our happiness during special occasions. 
 Get some Bella or some Bubbly to celebrate the NEW YEAR!
