Affordable Sparkling Wines For The Holidays

It doesn’t always have to be about Champagne when it comes to sparkling wine and it doesn’t have to be pricey to be satisfying or palate pleasurable. We’re highlighting four very different sparkling wines, each offering something different and enjoyable from a cocktail-style sparkler to a friendly Prosecco, a lively Cremant from Alsace, and a very spry California blanc de blanc. No matter your budget or preference there’s always something out there for everyone.

JP Chenet Ice (SRP $15) The White Bottle, you’ve seen it on store shelves especially at the holidays. The white bottle is a packaging code for sparkling wine served over ice. JP Chenet Ice, is a charmat method sparkling wine, which has been blended specifically for serving over ice, with 5% higher sugar content than the standard JP Chenet sparkling wine. Trending in some parts of the world, this cocktail style wine was made specifically to be served over ice.

Mionetto Prestige Organic Prosecco (SRP $16): A delicate perfume of elderflower with subtle fragrances of green apple. Green apple on the palate with a refreshing crispness from the delicate bubbles. Friendly, and approachable, a crowd pleaser.

Helfrich Cremant d’Alsace NV (SRP $20) Fresh white-fruit aromas, with fine bubbles. Elegant, fruity and well-balanced. A clean attack brings its lively acidity. Sophisticated and pleasant; once it gets to room temperature in the glass it becomes fruity and playful.

Biltmore Estate Blanc de Blancs (SRP $24.99) Brightly acidic and crisp, prominent lemon, green apple, and under-ripe pear. Sprightly and lively with a fine and persistent mousse.
