Mountain Dome Brut and a side of Donuts

It is Saturday morning and I am hungry. It has been a long week, and I want to indulge on something more than my normal coffee breakfast. I want brunch.

The thing is, I love the idea of brunch, but I cannot eat most “brunch” foods (I am lactose intolerant). Eating any kind of breakfast at a restaurant consists of poached eggs and a mimosa or coffee = boring.  And between you and me, I think a mimosa is highly overrated. If you had any decent sparkling wine, you would not ruin it by adding orange juice.

But enough of that. I am in charge [of my stomach] and I am making the executive decision that breakfast will consist of donuts and sparkling wine.

Mountain Dome and Donuts

I know of a place that makes both vegan and regular donuts, making it a win-win meal for everyone in my family.

As for the sparkling wine, I am going with Mountain Dome Brut. Mountain Dome holds a special place in my heart. It is a family winery from my hometown of Spokane and the children attended the same high school as me. While I was not in the same class as either child (one was in the grade below me), I have a sense of hometown pride every time I see or drink their wine.

It was also one of the first sparkling wines I drank. My parents bought me a bottle to celebrate my 21st birthday, and it was a good wine to cut my teeth on.

Ah, the memories….

I choose a donut, a yummy maple bar looking one, and sip my wine. The wine has almost an apple taste, sweet, but not sugary, and crisp. Hmm, different, but not bad. I take a moment to smell my wine, light and airy, not too much of a nose to it.  Not bad, not bad at all. I take a big bite of my donut and a generous drink of my wine. Bliss.

Honestly, the Mountain Dome Brut is the perfect pairing with my donut breakfast. So good, in fact, I have to tweet about it (between bites):

My breakfast choice is excellent, and is taking the edge off of my week. What better way to surge into the day than with a sugar rush (and some pretty darn good wine). Now, I am ready for the weekend.
