The grapes for this wine are picked early, at 19/20 brix, to keep them
naturally crisp, acidic and lower in sugar. Imperial Kir is based on the
‘Kir Imperiale’, a drink first made popular in the late 1800s, and still
enjoyed today. Our crisp, bubbly wine gets a touch of natural raspberry
that makes the wine semi-sweet. It boasts a beautiful, light rose color
and a crisp flavor profile composed of ripe, juicy raspberries with a
hint of melon.
 
This is the perfect bubbly wine for any celebration, and an excellent
aperitif to any meal or party. The perfect wedding toast wine!

My mom first introduced this to me a few years ago one Christmas morning for mimosas, after hearing about it from a friend, and let me tell you I am so glad she did! It has now become almost a tradition, I even made sure to order a couple bottles before my wedding in 2011 to share with my bridesmaids. It is hard to find in the DFW (TX) metroplex, but it can be done.

I'm not a huge wine/sparkling wine drinker. I saw this at Trader Joes and thought I would try it. I have to say, this is the best sparkling wine I have ever had! I love it! I would recommend this to anybody.

I first tasted this delicious bubbly at the Red River Art and Wine Festival and I was hooked. I have served it to many friends who also love this delicious beverage with the added kir. It is the best and we cannot get enough of it!

My husband and I have been ordering this bubbly for years! We have it for all major holidays and it's the only sparkling wine I can drink without getting a headache. The taste is amazing and we are ordering cases for my folks' 50th anniversary coming up this summer!

My husband and I served this wine for the toast at our wedding last year. On the wedding video you can hear the guests sip the wine and give an audible "Mmmm!" as they tasted it. Then many people asked for another glass! It was a huge hit at our wedding and now we're giving bottles as gifts and using it for other celebrations because it is so delicious!
