Well, it’s that time of year, so in the spirit of the season, for my monthly wine segment I brought some bubbly for us to drink. There are plenty of $40 meh options out there, so I thought it would be fun to try to prove that you can spend less and get a great glass of sparking wine. Instead of the names that everyone recognizes, what I did was bring some bottles that might not be so well-known but that have a lower cost than that one that rhymes with Groove Plookoe (no need to name names!) . We talked about the history of champagne, how to correctly open a bottle of bubbly, AND a little bit about sparkling wines around the world.
