You can’t go wrong pairing this wine with pork—pork that is roasted, cola-braised or glazed; duck that is tea-smoked, Pekinged or topped with a fruit compote; or anything flavored with 5-Spice, from short ribs to meatballs.
Winemaking and More
While rare in the United States, Sparkling Reds have long histories in other parts of the world such as Australia, Germany, and the Loire Valley of France.

A case of 12.
