Mark your calendars! "Sparklers", SommTV's new food and wine pairing competition TV show featuring Lytle-Barnett airs November 23rd, 2021! 


"Sparklers" is a high-stakes, high-pressure competition show based on cooking and pairing great sparkling wine from around the world. All 13-episodes feature a diverse cast of food and wine professionals who are changing the culinary world. While the show has guest judges, the main challenges are judged by the five contestants themselves, pitting friends against each other as they make tough decisions to create one of the most unique food shows you’ve ever seen and the first ever cooking and wine pairing competition show.

We at Lytle-Barnett are honored to be featured in this thrilling competion alongside a few other incredible sparkling wine labels such as Ca' del Bosco, Villa Sparina, Faire La Fête, Ruinart, and Krug.
