Champagne Under $20
You can't ring in the New Year without a bottle of bubbly. But there's no need to spend a bunch of money for champagne. Check out our ten Champagnes or sparkling wines, and there's really no difference, that you can get under $20.
Korbel Brut - $13.99
I'm a big Korbel Brut fan after discovering it on our wedding cruise. I've been drinking it ever since. There are several different flavors and it's only about 14 bucks for the big bottle.
Yellow Tail - $7.99
If you like Yellow Tail wine, it would stand to reason you'd like their sparkling wine, and you can get a bottle for under 10 bucks. It comes in white or rose.
Great Western - $7.99
I've never had Great Western, but you can really go wrong for 8 bucks. You also can choose between the brut or extra dry.
Freixenet - $10.99
I hadn't heard of Freinenet but when I was at the liquor store the sales clerk pointed it out because its on sale for $7.99. Normally a bottle would cost $10.99.
Riondo also comes in white and rose. I've never tried it but from the 'Gold Medal Winner' tag, I'm guessing it's pretty good.
Prosecco Candoni - $12.99
I've never even seen Prosecco Candoni before, but I'd buy it just because the bottle looked so cool. Plus it's from Italy.
Cooks - $12.99
Cooks is a more recognizable name and the $12.99 price tag is for the massive bottle. It'll be enough for the whole party.
Martini - $13.99
Martini comes in two sizes as well. My philosophy; go big or go home :)
Chandon has several options. From extra dry and brut to rose and blance de noir. Since I don't speak much french, I'm guessing the last one is more like a red champagne. But I've been wrong before.
Mumm Napa - $18.99
Mumm Napa, which comes from Napa Valley, shocker, comes in brut and rose as well.
If you're not sure which brand to go with, ask. The sales clerks are always happy to help when I stop in, tell them what I like and what I'm looking for. They usually direct me to a good choice. I've always said there's no such thing as bad wine.
