K.A. Linde’s 6 Favorite Sparklings To Drink With A Good Book

K.A. Linde’s 6 Favorite Sparklings To Drink With A Good Book

Author K.A. Linde has a new standalone, second-chance romance out this week—THE LYING SEASON—and to celebrate, she’s sharing her favorite 6 sparkling wines! I love her recommendations, some faves of mine already and others I can’t wait to try out! Read on to see what made her list, and more on THE LYING SEASON below too!


  • My Top 6 Sparkling Wine Recommendations

    What do you like to drink?

    It’s one of the first questions I get asked when out meeting people or with friends. I used to hedge around the question a lot. I don’t like many alcoholic beverages unless I’m on a beach and it’s filled with fruit puree and a little umbrella. So, my answer is always champagne.

    People usually look at me in surprise.

    You drink that for fun?

    When people think of champagne, they conjure up wedding toasts and New Year’s Eve celebrations. They’re thinking of the two dollar bottle that they drank at tailgates in college. They’re not thinking of champagne at all, really. And champagne (prosecco, cava, sparkling wine) should frankly be enjoyed by more people!


    So, without further ado, here are my top six sparklings to drink with a good book:

    Laurent & Perrier Brut

    The first time I had Laurent & Perrier, I was in Paris. It was my first trip to Europe and I was spending four days there with my husband, best friend, and her husband. We drank champagne everywhere. At an adorable café, at the top of the Eiffel Tower, in the gardens at Versailles. The pictures are littered with champagne flutes! We decided to splurge one night and try to Laurent since I hadn’t been able to find it in the States. (Note: I can find it at Total Wine but we don’t have one in Lubbock.) Forever and ever after, Laurent & Perrier will taste like afternoons on the Seine and French patisseries and summer in Paris.


    Moet & Chandon Rosé

    Strangely enough the Moet rosé reminds me of Disney World. I’d just attended a conference in Tampa, and I went with three of my girlfriends to Disney for the Food & Wine. We decided to eat and drink around the world. When we stopped in France, we all got a glass of the rosé and toasted to our new beginnings. We even met Aurora, just to make it all the more perfect.


    Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label

    Prior to my introduction to Veuve, I had been drinking a lot of the aforementioned cheap two-dollar bottle with a hefty dose of orange juice. But when I released the last book in my break out Avoiding series, I had a friend in Kansas buy me a bottle of Veuve to celebrate the release. I have been hooked ever since. It feels like my celebratory champagne. The bottle that I buy to toast a new release!


    Hope & Harrow Brut Rosé

    When I was in London the first time, we went up to the bar at our hotel. They had a sparkling wine that basically said “we can’t call it champagne, but that’s what it is.” I laughed and decided to try it and OH MY GOD, I have been thinking about it ever since. Unfortunately, you can only get it when you’re in the UK. My husband and I are going back in March and we’re already planning to bring a case home of this deliciousness!


    La Marca Prosecco

    La Marca is my go-to choice. It’s my Saturday morning tailgate mimosa. It’s my drink out with friends choice. It’s my pick up in the grocery store on the way home drink. It’s probably the least expensive on here, but it’s is my favorite for spritzers. Try it with Aperol and Passionfruit juice and it’s divine!


    Burklee Hill Sparkling Pinot Meunier

    I had to include a local winery on here. To everyone’s surprise, Lubbock, TX is the heart of Texas wine country. 80% of all Texas grapes are grown here. Burklee Hill is my favorite in town, and they’re winning awards all over the state of Texas. We go to their tastings at the local art festivals and farmer’s markets. In November, my husband and I went with some friends to their tasting room for a Friendsgiving, and we got to try their newest addition: a sparkling wine. Must try for anyone who lives in Texas.


  • About The Lying Season

    A new second chance office stand alone romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

    Walking away from Sam Rutherford was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

    It’s been five years since that day, and I’ve given up on looking for love. My focus is on my career. And it’s paid off—I’m successfully managing the reelection for the mayor of New York City.

    Then Sam walks into my office as the new legal counsel. Which means I have to see him every single day from now until November. We vow to remain professional, but it’s a small office. The sly glances and his blistering charm are unavoidable.

    It all feels so familiar. Too comfortable. After what happened the first time…I should know better.

    If I’m not careful, he’ll break my heart all over again.

    And I don’t know if I can survive Sam a second time.
