Decoding the Sparkling Wine Label

Just the facts ma'am


The time is upon us! The time to buy sparkling wine that is. Don't know where to begin?

Starting here is a good place. We've put together a handy, simplified chart for figuring out what you're going to get in each bottle of bubbly. I've tasted and reviewed all sorts of sparklers, and you can take your pick from among those, but having this extra information can really help you understand what you're going to get. So review all the selections we've already published, check out this cheat sheet, and get on line because you're going to be waiting to check out at the wine shop if you've waited this long to start your shopping!

Happy New Year!
