I’m off for a weekend with the girls in Brighton to kick off the festive period and although I’m not sure I can share the whole plan with you, I can tell you there will be bubbles involved! My two friends are also in the wine trade so we will have to do some intense ‘research’ and tasting to find the perfect fizz for our weekend. We’ll even be taste testing the new Aldi Grand Cru Champagne to see if it’s the bargain of the year!
Given tomorrow is the first day of December I’m prepared to swap my advent calendar for a glass of fizz a day – I might not manage it but I’ll give it a go!
The great thing about bubbles is there’s a mass of different kinds and one for every occasion, and even time of day. As a friend said to me last weekend, “There are times of day when it just wouldn’t be right to say yes to a G&T, whereas with bubbles…”.
Here’s our guide to the different fizzes and when they work best.

It just so happens that it is National Chocolate Week and what better excuse to publish the beginnings of what I hope to be a rich and long journey into the world of chocolate and wine pairing.
