Scu do, Prosecco Brut – NV 
Prosecco has long been one of our favorite alternatives to Champagne, and this delicious bottle is a great reminder of why. Light, dry, subtly citrusy, and endlessly drinkable, Scu Dò comes to us from a collection of small independent growers in Northern Italy’s Valdobbiadene, a sub-region of the Veneto. We think it’s some of the best bubblies on the market: excellent for sipping, savoring, or toasting.
Produttori di Govone, Barbera d’Alba – 2018   
The Barbera grape makes deliciously likable red wines: They’re full of bright, red-berried fruits, and they’re lively and fresh on the palate. Govone is unoaked, allowing the grape’s full character to shine through. Enjoy this with cured meats, cheeses, and briny olives.
