Laetitia Vineyard & Winery

Published April 21, 2013

No matter how your day’s going, any day that you stop at Laetitia Vineyard & Winery is a good day. It’s not because of the bocce ball court, which certainly doesn’t hurt. It’s not even because of the picnic tables with an expansive view, which makes you want to grow weeds and stay a decade or two. It’s the sparklers.

Who doesn’t love wine with bubbles! One of my mentors put it best, when asked about the appropriate time to drink sparkling wine:

“I only drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.”

-Madame Bollinger

Laetitia’s sparklers come in all colors, textures, and flavors. They cover dry, not too sweet, and a little sweet. There’s something for everyone, every palate, and every dish on your picnic.
