Picking the right wine
When selecting a sparkling wine for your wedding toast, be sure to choose one that sets the tone for your celebration. Are you planning a black tie evening reception with a sleek, modern twist? Is your heart set on a romantic afternoon brunch reception in the garden? Or perhaps your dream is a traditional celebration complete with an elegant wedding gown of vintage lace. Freixenet offers a few sparkling wine recommendations for your wedding day!
Chic and Modern
The striking black frosted bottle of Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut cava ($10) is already "dressed" for the stylish occasion! Very dry, smooth and easy-to-drink, the "black bottle bubbly" is ideal for your Vogue-inspired wedding reception, especially if you're throwing a trendy black and white soiree! For an alternative to the traditional champagne toast, mix sparkling wine cocktails with Freixenet Carta Nevada cava ($9) for your trend-setting guests! Consider displaying an unopened magnum (1.5 liter bottle) of Freixenet Cordon Negro along with a few silver or gold paint pens near your gift table or guest book. Encourage guests to sign the oversized bottle and leave you with a special "Memory Magnum" keepsake. Pop the cork on your first anniversary and take a trip down memory lane!
If you want bubbles that are sweeter, go with Cordon Negro Brut Extra Dry!
Sweet and Romantic
A delicate flute of pink sparkling wine is perhaps the most romantic beverage on the planet! Complement the romance of your spring garden-style wedding with Cordon Rosado ($10), an elegant cava full of ripe strawberry flavors with a dry finish. Cordon Rosado is soft and smooth, slightly "friendlier" than other brut sparklers, featuring an attractive salmon pink color.
Traditional and Elegant
After exchanging "I Do's", a horse-drawn carriage takes you to the reception of your dreams, complete with sparkling wine suited for royalty. The artisanal Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad cava ($20) comes in a hand-blown glass bottle emblazoned with the pewter crest of the Segura Viudas family of Spain, resting in a pewter base inscribed with grapes. Place a bottle on each table for added elegance - Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad is a centerpiece in itself!
