THE MAGIC FLUTES

THE MAGIC FLUTES

Sample a world of bubbles with Provence Marinaside’s new by-the-glass menu.

When Dom Pérignon tasted his invention, Champagne, for the first time, he was remarked to have cried: “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!”*

Well, all the stars are coming out at Provence Marinaside and the adjacent TWB-The Wine Bar, where a new menu pours over two dozen cavas, proseccos, crémants and Champagnes by the glass.

It may just be the most comprehensive by-the-glass bubble list in town, thanks to Le Verre de Vin (pictured), a revolutionary — almost magical — preservation system that keeps opened sparkling wines fresh for up to 21 days. Prices start at just $8 for Italy’s Montelvini Prosecco and go as high as $110 for a vintage glass of rapper’s delight: Cristal 2009.

This is one bubble we can’t wait to burst!
