Lala’s Offers the Spice of Life: Variety
As many would agree, variety is the spice of life. At Lala’s Wine Bar & Pizzeria, one can enjoy whatever variety of drinks from whichever nook of the world one would like. The wine at Lala’s is always flowing with one of the most eclectic wine lists in Denver.
Starting with the white wines, Lala’s can satisfy the appetite for sweet, novel, and even for a taste of something a bit on the wild side. The sweet Marchetti Late Harvest Verdicchio is a special blend of grapes that were picked after the normal harvest period so that they could accumulate that extra bit of sugar that gives this wine its characteristic flavor. While Lala’s is patterned after an Italian wine bar, it serves wine from every continent, well except Antarctica of course! Oregon’s grape bounty can be enjoyed with a glass of Montinore Borealis Riesling blend that is filled with flavor that will certainly keep things interesting. If you are out to dine on something that is more than interesting, and perhaps just a bit wild, you can go crazy with enthusiasm for the “Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay” from Chile that will keep changing flavors on you as long as sip upon this golden gem.
Each wine allows you to experience a new terroir and culture, traveling far beyond Italy. Lala’s encourage such travel, allowing you to “book” your own wine flight by choosing any three wines by the half glass. Wine by the bottle is also a good option, even if you are not looking to consume the entire bottle during your meal. Lala’s can cork the bottle so that you can take the wine remaining home with you, thanks to the Colorado Cork law.
For those looking for something beyond the fermented grape, Lala’s always has a lineup of Italian sodas to fit everyone’s taste buds. Authentic Italian soda comes in the form of peach, blood orange, strawberry, lemon, raspberry, blueberry, apple, and cherry. Cocktails are also on the list of drink options at Lala’s. For those who love an aromatic cocktail that meets the nose before it meets the mouth, Lala’s “Lavender Lush” is formed with house-infused lavender, strawberry and lemon vodka, Vovetti prosecco, and a sprig of fresh mint that makes this luscious concoction a luxury not to be missed.
No matter your motive for enjoying a drink or two this week, Lala’s Wine Bar has a wide selection of different drinks to satisfy any and every appetite. You can book a wine flight that will have you traveling through the wide world of wine or you may enjoy an unexpected medley of spice and everything nice in one of Lala’s creative cocktails. For those looking for an interesting non-alcoholic option, Lala’s traditional Italian sodas bring the flavors of the rainbow within your reach, offering almost every fruit of every color. Of course, there is always the option of ordering one of each, since after all, variety is the spice of life!
