Don’t Waste Money on Expensive Champagne!

Instead, celebrate New Year’s Eve with some delicious bargain priced bubbly made in the “Methode Champenoise”. Whether you buy a Cava or Cremant, there are lots of wines from Europe that use the same rigorous method of production as Champagne, but can’t call themselves by the name since they fall outside the Champagne region. Cava is from Spain, and uses local Spanish grape varieties; Cremants come from France, and may or may not use the same grapes as in Champagne. You’re saving a ton of money just by virtue of the fact that “Champagne” is not allowed to be printed on the labels of these bottles!  And it’s easy to find a great Cava for under $12.
