Best Bubbly for Your Buck!
Fall is just around the corner, which means the holidays are nearing and if you’re gathering around the table with family and friends to celebrate, you may be interested in enjoying a little bubbly.
Did you know that all Champagne is sparkling wine but not all sparkling wine is Champagne? Typical of the French, a bubbly bottle can only be called the C-word if it comes from that specific region in France. Everything else is broken down into other categories of sparkling wine.
To get the good stuff, most people believe they have to shell out a whole lot of money, but that’s just not true. We aren’t recommending you relive your college years and pay for your sparkly with the change you found under the pillow, but you also won’t have to break the bank for a delicious Champagne.
