SPARKLE ALL SEASON

Sparkle all season with these delicious, budget-friendly sparkling wines!

Champagne, prosecco, cava….I love them all. Especially during the holiday season. There’s nothing better than the sound of the ‘pop’ of a champagne bottle during a holiday party with your closest friends.

I’ve tried many different types of sparkling wine from the cheapest to the special occasion expensive bottles. With the holiday party season upon us, we all want to watch the party budget, especially when hosting a large group of people. Luckily, you can find truly delicious and top-rated sparkling wine for a great value. Here are a few of my favorite bubbles I’ve been sipping all season long that are sure to make you sparkle all season!

Cheers!

2012 Trump Winery Blanc de Blanc

Next we have one of my all time faves—2012 Trump Winery Blanc de Blanc.

Made where a piece of my heart is—in Arblemarle County, Virginia, Trump Winery makes one of the most decadent Blanc De Blanc’s I’ve ever had. It’s subtle but yet a total powerhouse, and truly very well made. Not to mention, it’s won a couple of awards.

I’m lucky enough to be 45 minutes away from Trump Winery, but they ship to most states in the US. At $34 a bottle, I can’t resist stocking up. Click here to order and learn more about Trump Winery.

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava

.

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut—my old standby, the Black Bottle Bubbly.

Imported from Spain, you can find it almost anywhere and it’s great when hosting a large party. With Freixenet, you will never have to sacrifice quality for value.

At approximately $11 a bottle, stock up and get the party started with this clean, super crisp, and extra dry wine

Gruet Brut

Gruet Brut—I just discovered this last week, and I’m so glad I did!

This Brut has some fabulous ultra fine bubbles. 90 points, Top 100 Value of 2016 by Wine Spectator at $15 a bottle.

WOW. This is the bubbly I think I’ll sip all season! Not to mention, it’s made in New Mexico—I can honestly say this is the first wine from NM I’ve had, and after this, I’m looking forward to trying more!

La Marca Prosecco

I can’t talk about sparkling wine without mentioning mimosas. If you’re planning any holiday brunch parties, my top pick for mimosa making is La Marca Prosecco.

This Italian sparking wine is another that you can find almost anywhere, and you don’t have to sacrifice quality for value. At approximately $15 a bottle (depending where you shop), this is a stand out all on it’s own and perfect for mimosas.

CHEERS! I’d love to know what your favorite budget-friendly sparkling wines are! I hope this helps you with your party planning this holiday season. Thanks for reading!
