The Best Bubblies


We’ve all seen pretty champagne stemware, stemless champagne glasses, and the like. But thanks to Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, we’re more enamored of the regal champagne coupe. BTW, history has it that the shape is based on part of the Dauphine’s anatomy. Scandaleux!

The trouble? They’re hard to find. But our friends at BHLDN got it right this season with these stunning, blush-hued stunners below. We’ll be using them for a super-feminine wedding in March.

And we’re starting to think beyond regular champagne for our upcoming nuptials.

Why not a deep red, rich Lambrusco, a bubbly that hails from Italy and cuts through heavy hors d’oeuvre’s perfectly?

Or a rosy Cava made from indigenous Spanish grapes? Our favorite is Castellroig, served at Fig here in Charleston (big thanks to the restaurant’s cocktail expert Brooks Reitz for the introduction! We’re hooked).

But in truth, anything with bubbles will do, and we’ve all been referring to this cheat sheet from Food & Wine magazine. Every suggestion is great, but we’re really partial to the NV Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut. What’s not to love about something that’s delicious and affordable?

    Love these! My parents used champagne saucers (complete with cheeky 1970′s bride and groom labels on them) and I plan on using their set at my own someday wedding. That is literally the only thing about my own wedding I have thought of. : )
