Veuve du Vernay Ice Brut is a classic sparkling wine from Bordeaux with a good serving of sweetness. ItÂ’s designed to be enjoyed over ice with even some roughly chopped fruit and garnish. ItÂ’s great as an aperitif, but also pairs well with tapas and light dishes. Veuve du Vernay is a range of French sparkling wines owned by the house of Patriarche, a Beaune-based wine company which is in turn owned by conglomerate Groupe Castel. Veuve Du VernayÂ’s wines which include Brut, RosÃ©, Demi-Sec, Chardonnay, Ice and Ice RosÃ© are produced in Bordeaux and exported to more than forty countries worldwide.
