Pre-Funk On NYE At These Free Tastings

Hey fellow lushes! Where will you be when the clock strikes midnight on Dec. 31?

The Wino will be passed out cold after hitting up a long list of free sparkling wine tastings earlier in the day. Thanks to my buddy Leslie Seaton, aka @FreshPickedSeattle for her fine weekly listings of free wine tastings around the city. This week, there's a half a dozen options for sipping bubbly at various wine shops and, damn, I'd like to drink a toast to those places!

Wanna meet up? I'll be the one with the red nose and the bent elbow.

Now, you know I could tell give you a list of bottles that are worthy of popping the cork, but let's face it: Your palate is different than mine. When it comes to Champagne, I like it rich and toasty and yeasty. When I win the lottery, I'm going to buy a case of Krug. Don't worry. I'll share.

If you wanna go around the world, there are fizzy wines from just about everywhere: cheap Lambrusco, Prosecco and Asti Spumate from Italy, value-priced brut from Washington state, sparklers from the former Soviet Union that taste like Putin's bald spot.

The Wino's obsessed with pink bubbles. I adore Mumm Napa Brut Rose, a beauty (at $16) that makes any dish a special occasion celebration. And I cannot get enough of the Sofia Blanc de Blanc minis from Coppola winery because, hell yeah, I love drinking bubbly pretty pink can.

But I'm open to trying new things and you should be, too.

Bin 41 is pouring tiny bubbles from 4 to 6 Friday.

Portalis will let you try before you buy on Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Curt Johnson from Ward Johnson Winery will share his sparkler at Greenlake Wine, where they'll also be pouring glasses of Deutz Champagne for $5 this weekend.

And Wine World will serve samples of Zarb Champagne starting at 2 p.m.

All sound like a fine and dandy way to get the party started! Who's ready to put the hurt on those brain cells with some ChamPAGNE??
