Above, last week's bubbles, with the basil plants the Russians brought as a gift (beware of Russians bearing gifts?). Prosecco is perfect recession wine. It has bubbles for celebration and blues-beating, and the price tag is wonderful. The Riondo was $10 before tax. Which matched its low alcohol content, hovering around 10%.

Carpene Malvolti was yesterday's purchase - dry, but smelling reassuringly of ripe grapes. $ 13.95 at Heights Chateau.

The silver spoon trick works excellently: slip one down the neck of the bottle in the fridge and it will preserve the bubbles for at least 3 days.


  1. just leaving the bottle uncorked, sans spoon in your fridge does just as well, if not better.

  2. m.heart..isn't it? I suspect the bubbles may stay there regardless, but don't want to waste any, in case.

    Beence: pliss?'s the point of bubbles if one can't drink them?

  3. Good way to celebrate ...and oh yes, Beence? Happy Canada Day!

  4. Oh sorry, it's from The Matrix ...
