Amal and George Clooney's Go-To Wine Is As Fancy As You'd Imagine
Yes, you can drink like a Clooney.
We'd never turn down an opportunity to open a bottle of vino, but a bottle of vino that has the seal of approval of our dream BFFs George and Amal Clooney? Now we're talking. Just in time for Valentine' Day, we learned the fine Italian wine that the Clooenys adore. All that's left is to pop the top and drink up! Salut!
The product: Franciacorta wines, luxurious and award-winning sparkling wines from Northern Italy (about $40 per bottle, prices vary)
The fan: Amal and George Clooney
It's no secret that the Clooney clan frequents Italy—George has been a fan of the Lake Como area for years. And while the powerhouse pair is enjoying the thrills of Northern Italy, they've been known to indulge in the sips and bites of the region. A favorite of the couple is of the local variety—Franciacorta wine.
The sparkling wine, for all us non-sommeliers, hails from Northern Italy and is a luxurious vino from the Franciacorta region, which boasts more than 100 wineries. (Just think of all the options!) Although the Clooneys are said to adore the variety as a whole—it conveniently pairs well with the Italian necessities of pizza and pasta—a rumored go-to of theirs is Ca’ del Bosco Franciacorta Satèn Millesimato.
Can't quite make it to Italia for a weekend excursion? That's OK! Franciacorta wines (even the Ca’ del Bosco!) are available in wine stores nationwide and online at sherry-lehmann.com. Prices vary but expect to shell out about $40 a bottle for a sip of Northern Italy. Hey, if you're going to splurge, you might as well do it the Clooney way!
