A national poll conducted by ORC International revealed that breakfast for dinner continues to be a popular trend among Americans.

Survey results indicate that breakfast for dinner is also a family favorite, as those with children in the house are more likely than those without to eat breakfast for dinner (94 percent vs. 88 percent).

Everyone knows wine and breakfast foods are BFFs! Wine is far more than a dinner time drink. Tonight from 5-8 we’re doing breakfast and we’re hoping that this experience will cause you to consider pouring a glass next time you’re frying up some eggs or breaking out the OJ to discover some pairings of your own to make for a magical morning or evening. We will be pouring Astoria Sparkling Moscato, Great Western Extra Dry Champagne, and of course, Canella Mimosa from the union of sparkling wine with the juice of the best Sicilian red quality oranges. See you tonight!
