A Sparkling Toast For Mother's Day

GUERNEVILLE (RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY), Calif., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For everything mothers do, Mother's Day probably should be celebrated every day of the year. However, since Mother's Day is only celebrated on one day, mothers deserve the very best on their special day. Champagne is a "very best" every mom appreciates, and serving the perfect sparkler on Mother's Day is easy.

Many families celebrate Mother's Day with breakfast or brunch. Whether plans call for breakfast in bed for mom or a family brunch, the food served will dictate the best champagne pairing. Egg dishes like omelets, quiche or frittata pair beautifully with a champagne that features elegant fruit and crisp acidity, like Korbel California Brut or Korbel California Chardonnay Champagne. If smoked salmon – served with bagels or on toast with chives – is on the menu, try a dry champagne with a bit of color; Korbel California Blanc de Noirs and Korbel California Brut Rose offer the right combination of richness and balance. French toast or waffles topped with fresh fruit are best accompanied by a fruity, off-dry sparkler such as Korbel California Extra Dry or Korbel California Riesling Champagne. Finally, if serving caviar, a totally dry (or nearly so) champagne of real finesse like Korbel Russian River Valley Natural will bring out its best.

Mother's Day dinner can be a little trickier. Only a few champagnes – among them Korbel California Rouge – pair successfully with beef or lamb. Still, both fish and shellfish find tasty accompaniment in a dry, crisp sparkler like Korbel California Brut or Korbel California Brut made with organic grapes, and glazed ham matches nicely with a slightly sweeter, spicier sparkler such as Korbel California Brut Rose.

Last but not least, if the Mother's Day plan is to simply toast mom with champagne, the easy choice is the best choice – her favorite sparkler. After all, it is her day!

Established in 1882, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces the United States' most popular methode champenoise champagne. Owned and managed by the Heck family since 1954, Korbel currently makes 11 California champagnes and a small amount of still wine. In a separate facility, Korbel also produces one of the country's most respected brandies.

Celebrate responsibly.
