This one is from New Mexico, and we have long loved the sparkling wine local to the region known as Gruet. We used to drink Gruet for New Year’s and special occasions in the later eighties when they were distributing a few thousand cases, mostly around New Mexico. It was great then and it’s great now. We squealed with delight the first time we saw it on a New York menu, and as it’s become more widespread. It’s cheaper than really good champagne and more delicious, by far, than other more economical domestic sparklers. A little-known newspaper called the New York Times just ran a piece on Gruet and its wonders.
