Make your holidays sparkle with bubbly wines

Occasionally, I have been known to have a glass of sparkling wine. Birthdays, holidays or just one of those days. Any day, really.
I like to celebrate life’s everyday successes — like when I fire up my computer and it doesn’t ask me to reset my password. Or discovering that I have successfully put on matching socks.
It’s good to be prepared for these momentous occasions. Here’s a few suggestions for those of you who love those tiny bubbles as much as I do.
Bellavista 2013 Brut LaScala
Franciacorta never disappoints! This high-end Italian sparkling wine is made the same way as French champagne. However, in my opinion, it drinks much better than many of the pricier bottles from France.
Bellavista La Scala honors the famous Milanese opera house, where it is served to guests between performances.
The tiny bubbles quickly came to a crescendo in my glass, delivering lovely aromas of toasted almond and notes of citrus. Elegance in a bottle for $48.99 — and worth every penny!
Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut
Visiting Gloria Ferrer’s winery is always my first order of business when I travel to California wine country. I love her sparkling wines and the spectacular view from her patio. It’s the only way to start a wine country vacation.
At $19.99, her Sonoma Brut is a great value. The wine’s fresh bread dough aromas and flavors of red pear made for a glorious pairing.

LaCaudrina Moscato D’Asti
I didn’t forget about the sweet wine lovers. La Caudrina Moscato D’Asti is pure nectar from the gods. It is 100% estate grown from a single vineyard. A lot of love goes into producing this $12.99 wine.
It’s a perfect dessert wine. I had a glass with a few caramelized pecans, dried apricots and figs. But the wine paired best with a cannoli.
Gruet Brut
You’ll be as shocked as I was to learn that this incredible sparkling wine is made in Albuquerque, N.M. Winemaker Laurent Gruet comes from three generations of Methode Champenoise winemaking in Bethon, France. It’s an amazing value at $17.99 and a must-try bottle for any champagne lover. It had aromas of fresh baked bread with a hint of Granny Smith and lemon meringue flavors.
Loredan Gasparini Prosecco Superiore
Prosecco is the most widely known sparkling wine in Italy. I admit, I’m getting to be a bit snobby when it comes to sparkling wine.
Prosecco comes in a wide range of quality. The Loredan Garparini Prosecco Superiore is wonderful — nice vibrant bubbles with a touch of fuji apple notes. At $15.99, it’s a great sparkling wine to drink anytime.
Long Story Short Sauv Blanc Bubbles
I can’t say that I have ever tasted a sparkling sauvignon blanc until now. I’m not much of a sauvignon blanc drinker. However, this $19.99 bottle, I like.
It’s a refreshing wine, for sure. It has lots of beautiful citrus flavors and aromas. This wine is a nice treat for any sauvignon blanc lover.
