Add a little pop to your picnic

If Mother Nature took us on a little rollercoaster this summer, the sunny season is far from over: Technically, it lasts well into September and the most beautiful days are (hopefully) yet to come. So, grab a bubbly and a basket and enjoy every picnic moment.

Published on August 15, 2023

Yes, charcoal barbecues in the park during a heat wave are a good time. But it's also a bit intense and requires its share of planning. With the month of August, a favourite among veteran vacationers, you can bet on beautiful and moderately warm days, while enjoying cool evenings that call for a well-filled basket, a little jacket and some bubbles!

To end the season in style

We suggest a rendezvous at a park near you, as a couple, with family or friends, with some simple yet tasty grub and of course, chilled sparkling wine. Something classy, ​​special, but totally unfussy. Enthusiasts can always charcoal again at home.

Let the good times roll 

As a bubbly is festive in itself, we can go the high-low route and keep the food simple. And since we like contrasts, combining sparkling wine and sandwiches, foccacia, veggies and dip is exactly the balance we’re after.

If you’re feeling fancy, stop by the fish market to fill your cooler with a few slices of smoked salmon, rillettes and a big handful of cold water shrimp. With hot dog buns, a little lemon and mayo, you could even concoct rolls on the go. Delicious yet totally manageable.

A sushi night at the park? Anytime. Bubblies will pair beautifully with your sushi, and when it comes to simplicity, it's hard to find more lovely. Plus, there's no risk of it getting cold. Place an order at your local restaurant (bonus points if you bring your own container) and arrange to meet your better half after work. Cheers to spontaneity!

Accessible bubblies for fuss-free occasions

When you stop at the SAQ on your way to the park, grab a classic sparkling wine like a Hungaria or a Henkell, available in small and large bottles depending on the size of the gathering. If you’re looking for a low-alcohol version, turn to Freixenet which offers a 0.05% option.
