What is the Bubbly Side of Life

At the Bubbly Side of Life, we give permission to pop that bottle of bubbly for celebration any day or everyday. Here you will find free winery reviews, bubbly recipes, and tips for enjoying bubbly.

We Know Sparkling Wines

Our knowledge of sparkling wines spans across North America and Europe. We have collected all of this Bubbly information on the blog, where we:
  • Continually taste accessible sparkling wines (it sure is rough!)
  • Grade each winery on its own Bubbly Report Card
  • Create bubbly menu items for your celebrations
  • Review sparkling wine-related products and accessories

Why?

Because bubbly makes everything better!

The Celebration Effect

How do you turn an everyday moment into a Bubbly moment?

Not long ago, Bubbly Side of Life founder Vicki Sowa found herself almost stuck in an elevator at Bubbly Headquarters. The elevator door stopped mid-closing just as power went out. With just enough space to spare, Vicki leapt out to safety. THAT was cause for celebration!

When you embrace that everyday moments are worthy of celebration, then you will find more everyday moments are deserving of celebration.

We call this The Celebration Effect. The moral of the story is that you don’t have to wait for a near-catastrophe to be averted, or good news to land in your lap to open a bottle of bubbly and celebrate. At the Bubbly Side of Life, this is our way of life.

"The sound of happiness."

About Vicki Sowa, Founder

Working in Corporate sales, I was used to having a sales goal. My last year, the goal was 33% and I knocked it out of the water, or so I thought. I ended the year at 92% and you know what they said, “It’s not 100%, so no need to celebrate just yet.”

And that was it, I vowed that I would celebrate all moments big and small on my own terms.

And with my great love for bubbly, I have tasted sparkling wine all over the US, Canada and the United Kingdom, enjoyed Cava in Spain, and I choose to celebrate my everyday moments by popping a bottle and enjoying every sip.

Living in Oregon wine country gave me great appreciation for the art of winemaking and everything that goes into creating the perfect bottle of bubbly. While I’m not a professional sommelier, I am WSET Level 2 certified and I have tasted A LOT of bubbly.

And coming together in the love of bubbly, to share what I have learned is really what it’s all about and why this community is so important to me.

The ultimate goal is to create a Bubbly Side of Life tasting room where we can all celebrate the everyday moments by raising a glass together. And until I open those doors, we’ll be together at Bubbly U (yes, the former teacher in me is coming out again), the exclusive membership group. Join us there for even more bubbly fun!
