Summer seems to have flown by and the holidays are quickly arriving. Halloween is right around the corner and our Fall newsletter offers fun ideas to help add a little sparkle to All Hallows' Eve.
We are also excited to announce that the Elyssia Gran Cuvée Brut has finally arrived! Elyssia offers a heavenly symmetry of old world winemaking and new world varietals - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The wines are crafted using bold new blends while limiting yields to ensure the highest quality.

New Release - Elyssia Gran Cuvée Brut
Elyssia Gran Cuvée brings the idea of symmetry alive with its combination of traditional Macabeo and Parellada Cava grapes blended with international favorites - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The first three are cultivated in the Freixenet family vineyard 'La Freixenada' in Sant Quinti de Mediona, where the chalky strata creates an excellent soil for these grapes.
The result? A wonderfully sophisticated bouquet of roasted nuts, citrus fruit and honey. And this complexity carries through to the palate, delivering a brilliant kaleidoscope of flavors finishing with a spicy encore.

Halloween lands on a Saturday this year, which means we will have an entire free day to prep for a night of laughter, fun and great memories.
Add a little sparkle
Decorate for Halloween using empty Cordon Negro Brut bottles. Clean the bottle by soaking it in water and gently pealing the wet label off. Then dress up your bottle with some of these fun ideas:
• Use the bottle as a mysterious candle holder.
• Place glow sticks inside the bottles and use to light a pathway.
• Paint jack-o-lanterns on the bottles with glow-in-the-dark paint. The black bottles will disappear at night while the shape of the bottle will give great contour to your painted faces.
We'd love to see what you come up with! Share photos of your Freixenet bottles in their own Halloween costumes on our Facebook page.

Cava & Food Pairings
Cava's amazing flexibility makes it one of the most food-friendly wines out there, from popcorn to fish tacos to Chinese take-out.
The floral, citrus and mineral notes in Freixenet wines are very refreshing and work to complement, not overpower, the flavors of the food. Cava has relatively low alcohol, which allows it to pair well with spicier foods since the heat of the spice is not amplified by the heat of the alcohol. And the bubbles in cava serve to reawaken the taste buds while adding texture to the overall dining experience!
