It's that time of year again—time to break out the bubbly and celebrate the start of a new year. But before you reach for your favorite bottle of sparkling wine, why not try something a little bit different this year? After all, New Year's Eve only comes around once a year, so let's make it special! Here are some ideas for choosing the perfect wine to toast with on the last night of the year.
This special night you can drink the wine you like the most, the one that has always been your favorite. Or you can also give a twist and surprise your taste buds with a different and daring wine. A wine from another country that you have never tasted before.
If organic is important to you, there are plenty of sustainable wines available that won't break the bank. Look for labels with certifications from organizations, these organizations guarantee that the grapes used in production were grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers and processed without added sulfites or other chemical additives. So not only will your toast taste great, but it will also be good for both your health and the environment!
Vegan wines are made without using any animal products or by-products whatsoever. This means no eggs, milk, honey, or other animal-derived ingredients are used in the production of these wines. Instead, vegan wines are made with grape juice and plant-based ingredients such as yeast, enzymes, fining agents, and sometimes even additives like sugar.
Vegan wines have a certain appeal to them due to their unique flavor profiles. Since they’re not fined with animal products, these wines tend to have brighter and fresher flavors than traditional wines. They also tend to be less alcoholic and have a lighter body, which makes them perfect for pairing with lighter meals like salads or sushi. And of course, if you’re looking for an ethical way to enjoy your favorite beverage, then vegan wines make the perfect choice!
Choose Something Unusual
If you'd like to step outside your comfort zone this New Year's Eve, why not try something unusual? Instead of reaching for something familiar like chardonnay or pinot noir, look for wines made from rare grape varieties such as albariño or cinsault. You may even find some obscure Italian varietals like arneis or grignolino lurking in your local store! Whatever strange and exotic bottles you choose, they'll certainly make an impression at your New Year's celebration.

El sentido de la Vida
What is the meaning of life?
It's a question that has been asked throughout history, but it's one that we may never truly know the answer to. However, we can enjoy trying to find out with El Sentido de la Vida. This wine represents part of the coldest and calcareous plots in the village of Fuente-Álamo in Jumilla region with northern exposures.
The name of this wine translates to "the meaning of life," so sit back, relax, and enjoy a glass (or two) as you ponder the big questions.
Looking for a delicious, complex Ribera del Duero that won't break the bank? Marta Mate is your perfect match! This wine has an expressive nose of flowers, minerals and black fruit, with subtle notes of figs and spices from the French oak barrels it's aged in. The sweet attack on the palate is balanced by pleasant acidity, giving way to velvety tactile sensations and a long, pleasant finish. Marta Mate is a truly special wine that has been awarded 95, 97 and 96 points by renowned wine critic Tim Atkin - and at a fraction of the price of other top Ribera del Dueros. Don't miss your chance to try this outstanding vintage!
Looking for a truly unique wine experience? Look no further than Primordium. This high-layer wine is a beautiful cherry red color, with a deep garnet hue that is almost black. Despite its age, the wine has not lost any of its intensity.
On the nose, you'll get intense aromas of black fruit, blue flowers, and incense. You'll also catch hints of slightly toasted oak, star anise, lavender, and licorice. The dark chocolate notes will merge into a complex sensation that you won't soon forget.
On the palate, this wine is long and delicious, with a sweet attack that gives way to dry, powerful tannins. The acidity is well balanced, making for a full-bodied wine that leaves a warm sensation in your mouth. It's an elegant and complex wine that is sure to please even the most discerning palate.
Primordium gets its name from being the "first one" created by Cesar Maté for his wonderful Ribera del Duero project. This makes it a truly special wine that is definitely worth seeking out. So don't wait any longer - order your bottle (or bottles!) of Primordium today! There are only few bottles per year.
