With the warmer weather and longer days, sometimes something light, refreshing, with a little pizzazz sounds good before lunchtime and nothing fills the bill quite like a mimosa. Ironstone Vineyards serves up a California Champagne, also known as sparkling wine, that is made with premium French Colombard grapes, then just add some orange juice, and voilà! The non-vintage champagne has crisp flavors of pears, apples, and a hint of pineapple with a bit of sweetness on the finish.
Not sure what to have with your mimosa? Then make your way to Ironstone for the annual Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch in the Alhambra music room on May 13. There are two seating times, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Drinks served for the brunch will include champagne, mimosas, and one of their popular award-winning California Symphony Obsession wines.
