When the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve, be sure your glass is filled with one of these delicious sparkling wines from around the globe. And, make a resolution to NOT only break out the bubbly on special occasions - celebrate and toast life all year long. Happy New Year!
France - Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve ($36)
Only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France can be called Champagne. For a chic French sip that is delicious and affordable, you can't go wrong with Nicolas Feuillatte. Aged at least 3 years, their Brut Réserve is elegant and crisp.
Italy - Lamberti Prosecco DOC Extra Dry ($13.99)
Prosecco is always a great option and Lamberti packs plenty of flavor at an amazing price point. This lively and balanced bubbly is a crowd pleaser.
Spain - Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut ($12)
Freixenet remains a sentimental favorite - I toasted 2 New Year's Eves in Spain with their Cava. Known as the "Black Bottle Bubbly," Freixenet Cordon Negro is aromatic and fresh.
Argentina - Trapiche Extra Brut ($15)
I served this bubbly with dinner just a few days ago and it definitely made the meal more special. Trapiche Extra Brut has a hint of sweetness and a lovely finish - very easy to sip.
