Gruet & Grapefruit, aka a G2

Wine Wednesday brings a drink we served this year at our Holiday Open Houses, a G2.  Or better known as a Gruet and grapefruit juice.  A spin on a mimosa, but swapping out the orange juice for grapefruit juice.  As we head into a few holiday week-ends, thought it might be fun to mix it up a little.  This is also a shout-out for Gruet, which is a sparkling wine made here in the US. It has become one of my very favorite sparkling wines to serve for a large gathering, when serving Champagne to a crowd is not in the party budget.  

From the maker:  Founded in 1984, Gruet Winery specializes in Methode Champenoise sparkling wines. Family owned and run, the New Mexico-based winery produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-based sparkling wines and a small collection of still wines, with roots originating from Gilbert Gruet’s Champagne house in Bethon, France. More than 25 vintages later, Gruet Winery has achieved unprecedented acclaim and remains a favorite of the nation’s top sommeliers.
