Stars and sparking wine

Our Austin gang had another night of sushi and celebrity spotting on Saturday, this time at Kenichi. Director Dennis Lee was at the next table with Ryan Reynolds , George Newbern and what I assume were other crew members. They’re in town filming Fireflies in the Garden, which also stars Julie Roberts.

But I didn’t have a relevant reason to post about the evening until Jennifer ordered a glass of champagne. And got a can.
Champagne in a can may sound as refined as wine in box, but the winery owned by director Francis Ford Coppola knows what its doing. Named for his daughter, Sofia blanc de blancs sparkling wine is perfectly designed for club girls. It comes in a sleek, pink can with an expandable, bendy straw attached to the side.

You can read an in-depth review of the product here.

  1. Maybe because I'm European, I'm a bit of a purist. Canned wine may be techincally feasable, but where's the charm, then? ;)
