SOMETHING TO SIP ON

BBQ AND BUBBLES

WAYS TO MAKE YOUR FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS SPARKLE


As we are set to mark the Fourth of July, there’s nothing more American than a backyard barbecue, the perfect combination of food, friends, and raising a glass to toast it all.

As you plan your celebrations, we’ve got some great ideas to bring some sparkle to the occasion — whether you’re hosting or attending.



Delight Everyone With a Bucket of Bubbly 


A superior sparkling wine is just a twist of a cap away.

Our AluMinis™ are perfectly portable and designed for an on-the-go lifestyle. Ideal for a single serving, you can chill in a bucket of ice and let everyone help themselves to their preferred sparkling wine.

Whether it’s the bright tropical, grapefruit, and floral notes of Chandon Blanc or the summer-ready flavors of fresh strawberry, watermelon, and cherry of our Chandon Brut Rosé, we’ve got your backyard gathering covered.

Bonus points for a mix of red, white, and blue when you get both.





Take that Fourth of July color theme even further with a celebration of colors.


Of course, red, white, and blue decorations are plentiful and easy to find around the Fourth, but you can take it beyond a patriotic tablecloth and incorporate the theme in the food. A simple snackable tray of strawberries, sliced pears, and blueberries can be an understated way to pull through the theme. Or you can really indulge with red velvet mini cupcakes with red, white, and blue frosting.


For the finishing touch, serve up some bottles of Chandon Limited-Edition American Summer Brut in an exclusive bottle that celebrates the spirit of American summer.





Serve Up a Crowd-Pleasing Sparkling Cocktail


Give everyone a taste of Chandon Home with this guest favorite created by our own mixologist. It’s a simple shrub cocktail that starts with the bold fruitiness and spicy complexity of Chandon Blanc de Pinot Noir.


STRAWBERRY NOIR


STRAWBERRY NOIR

Just top 1/2 oz. Strawberry Tarragon Juice (recipe below) with Blanc de Pinot Noir and garnish with a dried strawberry.


Strawberry Tarragon Juice: 

  • 4 cups strawberries
  • 3 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 8 sprigs of tarragon


In a saucepan, combine strawberries, sugar, and 1/2 cup water, and let sit on counter for 1 hour.

Cook over medium heat for about 5 mins, then add vinegar and continue to cook until simmering. Remove from heat and add tarragon. Put into a mason jar and let sit for 24 hours. 

Strain solids from the liquid, and pour into a mason jar.


You can play mixologist yourself or leave instructions for guests to mix their own Strawberry Noir. Our 1.5-liter Magnums of Blanc de Pinot Noir will make sure you’ve got enough for everyone to enjoy.


Provide Some Perfect Pairings


Whether you’re hosting or attending as a guest, you can elevate the classics of backyard barbecue with sparkling wines that pair delightfully.


Start with the all-American star of any backyard barbecue, burgers on the grill. The perfect complement to those smoky flavors is Chandon Brut Rosé with its red-fruit flavors like strawberry, red cherry, and pomegranate.


If BBQ pork (or meatballs) are on the menu, add some color with Chandon Red Demi-Sec. The winery-exclusive is a unique cuvée that marries the grace and complexity of pinot noir with the zesty flavors of zinfandel.


Another staple of any cook-out? Mac and cheese. Chandon Blanc de Pinot Noir is an ideal pairing — although it’s also incredibly versatile with food with a smooth spiciness and intense fruitiness. It makes for a great catch-all.
