Cava
Cava is an excellent Champagne alternative, and its easy-drinking character makes it hugely popular. Have you tried the rosé version? Click here to try a fresh and lovely version made from an indigenous red Spanish grape.

Crémant
Any dry French sparkling wine made outside of Champagne, white or rosé, may be called a “Crémant.” In practice, there are a huge range of wines that fall under this broad definition; since 1990, there has even been a “Crémant de Bordeaux” appellation. Try this Crémant de Bordeaux from Jean-Louis Ballarin: it is lean, waxy, floral, and delicious.

Prosecco
Prosecco has a broader appeal than almost any other wine: always fresh and approachable, this Italian bubbly is perfect for large gatherings. Bring a bottle of this dry and elegant Prosecco to your next party.

Lambrusco
Also a huge hit at parties, sparkling red Lambrusco is a delightful, robust Italian wine. Try this berry-flavored, well-mineraled, dry version for a very tasty introduction.
