chandon_NewYearsEve.jpgIf you can't attend Domaine Chandon's Sparkling Gala this year for New Year's Eve, not to fret; check out their recommendations for hosting a Chandon-style soiree at home!

1. Start the night a Chandon Sidecar: Begin with this brandy-based, citrus-infused cocktail classic, made distinctive with some sparkling flourishes and sure to please your guests. Click here for recipe.


2. Every good party needs a soundtrack, so try creating a playlist of your favorite songs from the past year. It'll infuse the celebration with your unique personality and is a nostalgic, toe-tapping way to send off the year.


3. Make it a magnum: Always a popular option to keep the bubbles flowing on New Year's Eve, a magnum of Chandon Brut Classic is both economically and conversationally effective. One magnum equals two regular-sized (750ml) bottles of wine.

Don't forget to relax and enjoy your guests, look forward to what the new year may hold and don't forget the midnight kiss!



TastingRoom.com: It's Vino Nirvana

tastingRoom_2girlsDrinkingWine.jpgIf you enjoy the finer things in life (and who doesn't?), then you'll love this innovative new way to enjoy fine wine. TastingRoom.com takes the risk out of online wine purchasing by allowing you to try before you buy. Whether it's by the taste, by the glass or by the bottle, we let you enjoy wine the way you want it.

Our Wine Samplers let you line 'em up, six great wines side by side, and you're the judge and the jury. Each Sampler consists of six tastes (50ml) of different wines based on varietal, region or food pairing ability. Pick your favorite wines from each Sampler and then go online to order full-sized bottles of them to drink now or store for future consumption.

Our Super Flights™ take the Wine Sampler one step further: you or your giftee can sample six wines and then pick the top two to be delivered to their doorstep at no extra cost. It's that easy.

Say it's a Tuesday night, you're home alone and you want just one glass of wine (we've all been there, right?). Our innovative Wines by the Glass allow you to enjoy a single glass of wine whenever you like. Mix and match multiple Wines by the Glass and order by the 6-pack or by the case. Either way, you get great taste and no waste. Genius.

If you want to give a gift that keeps on giving, give a membership to our Wine Club, so your gift recipient can discover wines they love on a regular basis. It's the only club that lets you choose the wines you receive, so you're sure to get something you love every time. It's waaaay better than a book club.

TastingRoom.com takes the whining out of wine shopping. No more battling the crowds at your local liquor shop or asking for help from uneducated staff. In our Wine Shop, you get to choose from hundreds of wines by producers from all of the major winegrowing regions in the world. That's what we call vino Nirvana.
