Gone are the days when you had to spend a lot of money to get a decent bottle of bubbly. Today, there are fantastic pétillants, Proseccos, and others sparkling wines that are affordable and eminently drinkable. And, if nothing but Champagne will do, some grower producers are making delicious, modestly priced juice.
Led by Pamela Busch, this two hour tasting seminar will explore the best-value bottles of bubbly. Cheers!
