Schloss Biebrich Sekt

Schloss Biebrich Trocken

Bargain of the decade. I’ve been informed that at least some Trader Joe’s in northern Virginia are offering Schloss Biebrich Sekt. In the greater Silicon Valley (CA) area the price is $5.49 a bottle.  This is a sparkler from Germany’s Henkell & Co. Gruppe. Trust us, this will not compete with any reasonable quality sparkler — from the US, France, Italy, or — yes — Germany.  But it is light, unpretentious, and very quaffable.  It’s also about 11% alcohol so you don’t have to destroy your liver.

We occasionally review serious bargains.  At this price you can afford to buy a few bottles to see if you like it.
