We ate, we drank, we sparkled.

Sparkling Pointe vineyard held the fourth session in its annual “Eat, Drink and Be Sparkling” food and wine pairing series on Sunday. The event allows you to take a break from your holiday shopping with decadent treats served alongside a glass of bubbly.

This Sunday’s delectable combo featured bento boxes from Stirling Sake along with glasses of Sparkling Pointe’s Topaz Imperial and bossa nova music. Monday Michiru, a Japanese-American actress, singer and songwriter, and her band provided the tunes.

The tuna was unbelievably fresh and those seated at our table found themselves sipping second and third glasses of sparkling wine.

The series pairs Sparkling Pointe’s offerings with local food purveyors’ dishes in combinations that show off the versatility of flavors and combinations.

An upcoming week will feature chicken and waffles from First and South in Greenport paired with a glass of Cuvee Carnaval Blanc. Another will feature truffles from the Petulant Wino in Greenport paired with Sparkling Pointe’s 2006 Brut Seduction.

Sparkling Pointe is located at  39750 Route 48, Southold. Visit sparklingpointe.com or call (631) 765-0200 for tickets and more information.
