This time of year calls for celebration. It’s time to gather the people you love around you and make sure they know how much they matter. It’s time to laugh, sing, give gifts and raise toasts. It’s time to treat yourself and enjoy the moment.

Nothing says celebration like a glass of something bubbly. The sound of the bottle popping, plus the gentle fizz as the glass is filled, brings to mind many a happy evening. O’Briens are an Irish family owned drinks retailer with 34 stores across Ireland and online at obrienswine.ie. Their festive fizz collection covers all bases this holiday season; from the bottle you need for that special moment between just the two of you, to the party fizz that needs to go around. Head into O’Briens to find the perfect addition to your Christmas and New Year’s Eve wine rack.

Granzamy Brut NV Champagne

This is new to Ireland this year from a small family estate, growing their own grapes and making their own wine, they are focused on quality from vineyard through to bottling. Made entirely from black grapes, look for hints of toasted brioche and hazelnut.

Lanson Black Label NV

Champagne Lanson’s signature is its fruity freshness of style. The house style of Lanson is defined by an elegant, lingering finish on the palate that makes it an ideal Champagne for a celebration or for pairing with seasonal nibbles.

Bollinger Special Cuvée

Rich and full in style with lots of rich yeasty brioche flavours and thrilling apple and pear fruit on the aromas and palate, Bollinger Special Cuvee is known to be the Champagne of choice for James Bond! No wonder, it is one of the best non-vintage Champagnes around.

Mito Frizzante

New to Ireland this year, Mito Frizzante closely resembles the aromas and flavours of Prosecco. Its screwcap makes it easy to open and store and it’s refreshing and delicately frizzante style are perfect for sharing with friends.

Rizzardi Prosecco

This is a brilliant and extra-dry Prosecco from a family-owned peerless old Veneto winery. The perfect balance of ripe pear fruit and a fine crisp backbone make it an ideal Prosecco to serve as an aperitif or to match with festive food.

Dom Perignon

An ultimate luxury treat for the festive season, Dom Perignon is considered to be one of the finest deluxe Champagnes available, noted for its restrained but powerful intensity along with a citrusy undertone & brisk acidity.
