So I’ve probably suggested enough Champagne and sparkling wines on this blog to fill a small country, but since I’m not huge on sweet wines, I thought you could get your fill at Wine Thieves’ 6th annual Sparklings & Stickies party on Dec. 27. It’s from 7 to 9 p.m. in the downstairs Cellar of their Lafayette store at 3401 Mt. Diablo Blvd.
Rod and the boys are swell about helping people find under-the-radar wines at ridiculously low prices. I think I first discovered Gruet New Mexico bubbly there, as well as Sigura Vidas Cava. I’m sure they’re on it with stickies too, from Sauternes to Port.
You can always default to my Cline Late Harvest Mourvedre or Meyer Family Port — two sweet wines I do admittedly enjoy — but I’m sure the Thieves can hook you up with so many more options at prices that are less than these wines.
The event costs $20 per person. Be sure to register via their Web site by Dec. 26. This thing fills up every year.
