Freixenet Fridays

Congrats to Heather, the winner of the first Freixenet Fridays giveaway! Heather, please email me at traveleatlove (@) with your contact info. Everyone else, please check back on Friday for another Freixenet Fridays celebration. Salud!


TGIF to all of you! How about we end the week with a little bubbly?

As you may know, I am a fan of Freixenet Spanish Cavas, in addition to loving wines from other Freixenet brands like Gloria Ferrer (heaven!) and Tapeña.

Earlier in the year I had the great opportunity to do a tasting with Freixenet employees and even helped with an event for Tapeña. I love that wines produced by Freixenet taste like special occasion wines but are at a price point for celebrating every day.

Freixenet is coming to Boston for its MINI Mobile Tour starting this week, and to celebrate I’m working with them on a fun set of giveaways for the next few Fridays. Freixenet Mini


The winner will receive the following: Freixenet Fridays

Freixenet Chiller Bag

2 Freixenet Cordon Negro Mini Bottles

Where would you take your Freixenet minis?

    I would take my Freixenet Minis to my patio and enjoy before having dinner on a perfect September evening. Even better if my husband’s cooking said dinner…can that be part of the prize too?!

    I agree with Amanda – outside! I would definitely bring the Freixenet Mini’s up to my roofdeck, there or the Espanade ;)

    Can’t wait to visit Gloria Ferrer next week!!!

    Dude, I like everything miniature… especially cars and bottles. (Pretend it’s not illegal to have an open container outdoors in MA…) I would definitely take my Freixenet Minis on a fall hike. Bubbles with a view!

    I would take them on a wedding palooza road trip. ;)

      Wedding palooza road trips definitely call for cold beverages! :)

    3. Lindsey @ BeantownEats’s avatar

      I have to agree, outside as fall is approaching sounds perfect to me!


    4. Renee’s avatar

      I would take my mini Freixentet on a mini vacation to the cape!


    5. Carol’s avatar

      This is great for a picnic in the park to enjoy Fall!


    6. Heather’s avatar

      I would take my minis up to the lake for a fall weekend getaway. Winning would be the perfect justification for a mini vacation!

          My daughter introduced me to these…so I guess I’d have to share with her…maybe! I’d like to enjoy these on my deck in the evenings. The weather is perfect for it!
