Aurora – Carlos Creek Winery in Alexandria, MN

($34.95, 11.5%ABV, Carlos Creek Winery)

Aurora is a sparkling wine made from a cold climate grape Brianna. It tastes similar to a Riesling and I believe that is because of the crispness of the wine. For that reason this wine makes a great summer wine.

When we were at Carlos Creek Winery, Aurora was the top seller of the day, according to staff. And I understand why. This is a great wine and I would buy it again!

Aurora would pair well with a turkey dinner or a Minnesota “champagne” to ring in the new year.
