Boston and 90+ Cellars Have a Sparkling Wine for the Holidays

Boston Bubbly sales support the Greater Boston Food Bank.


Here’s the perfect idea to complement a gift-pack for your most proudly Bostonian buddy: A bottle (or two) of Boston Bubbly. The second collaboration release between Boston magazine and local négociant 90+ Cellars, Boston Bubbly is a festive sparkling wine from the Loire Valley. Packaged with a charming skyline label, Boston Bubbly is sold in part to support the Greater Boston Food Bank this season.

Just 500 cases of this brut were traditionally produced by a standout French winemaker. A blend of Chardonnay and Arbois grapes, the wine rested in the bottle sur lattes (on its side) for up to three years to develop flavors of crisp citrus and light toast. It’s full-bodied and boldly effervescent.

The wine is also making the season a bit brighter for families across Eastern Massachusetts. For every bottle of Boston Bubbly sold, $1 goes to the Greater Boston Food Bank. The largest hunger-relief organization in New England, the GBFB serves more than 140,000 people every month, and can supply three healthy meals with a single dollar donation.

Like the Celebrate Boston Rosé, the first collaboration between 90+ and Boston that rolled out this past spring for the magazine’s busy summer events season, Boston Bubbly has a sweet label drawn by Amanda Williams Galvin, depicting a few recognizable landmarks like the Prudential and the Custom House Tower.

Boston Bubbly retails for $17.99, and it landed at stores around Boston just before Thanksgiving. Find it now at local wine shops, larger grocery chains, and through 90+ Cellars’ web store. Got some rosé fans on your gift list, too? Celebrate Boston is also still available to buy online.
