The perfect summer day at the beach or on the patio has just met its beverage match in the new fruit-flavored fusion sparkling wines from Barefoot Bubbly; Peach Fusion, Berry Fusion and Citrus Fusion, all at a nifty, thrifty $9.99 a bottle. Heading to a post volleyball tournament party at North Avenue Beach or brunch on a friends spanking new deck in Plainfield, you're sure to be a most welcome guest if you arrive with one of these mouth-watering bubbly's in hand. Berry Fusion is sweet, but not too sweet. It has a mouthful of pomegranate, cranberry and ripe, juicy plums. Tropical Fusion is the fun one, with the erotic flavors of blood orange, passion fruit and ripe, sweet peaches cascading into your mouth. Try this one as an aperitif before the main brunch event, or as a main ingredient in a sparkling wine cocktail. Let your imagination run wild with its cornucopia of flavors! Peach Fusion was my personal favor, with the flavor of ripe Georgia peaches lingering long in the mouth. This is a terrific sparkler with summer salads and seafood. Crab salad, sesame chicken salad or a kale
and spinach mix with avocado, sun-ripened tomatoes and gobs of Feta or Goat cheese are the right ticket for a joyous summer afternoon. At just under ten dollars a bottle, stock up on Barefoot Bubbly fusion sparkling wines as your go to wines for summer.
