Sparkling Wine for the Red Carpet without the Celebrity Prices

I love everything about the Oscars ~ judging what people say and where as they walk the red carpet, being entertained by the host (can’t wait for Seth MacFarlane!), anticipation of who will win, acceptance speeches…and of course, the glass of sparkling wine in my hand!

While tonight is an evening of glitz and glamor, not everything has to be at the cost of Oscar fashion.  Whether you are joining friends to watch the show, or cozying up on your couch, grab a bottle of one of these great sparkling wines ~ all for under $20!

Piper Sonoma Brut Select Cuvee ($11.99-$12.99)

Crisp and creamy, with floral and citrus aromas, flavors of green apple and anise with a zesty finish

La Marca Prosecco ($11.50-$14.99)

Delicate, well balanced prosecco, with a good blend of baked apple, sour lemon and grapefruit, light creamy mineral texture – discovered this one from our friend Terri, at A Girl In The South (thank you!)

Domaine Ste Michelle Extra Dry ($10.99-$11.50)

This is one of our house sparklings – slightly sweet bubbly, frothy and smooth, and pleases many in a crowd, easy drinker.

Gloria Ferrera Blanc de Noirs ($15.99-$17.25)

Rose sparkler aged 18 months, 100% Pinot Noir – good red cherry berry fruit with notes of citrus, and earth undertones.  Heavy enough to pair very well with food – even some with a little spice.
