By ‘bitter’ you probably are referring to the dryness of the sparkling wine.  Look for something that has a higher number.  Something that is a 0 or a 1 for example are fairly dry.  If you want something sweet, look for something with a number of 3 or higher!

If you are on a budget, Barefoot makes sparkling wine that it about $7/bottle and it’s pretty good! They have 4 different variations, some sweet!

@sassypants: I agree with this – the Pinot Grigio one is pretty nice!

If you like sweet wines, try moscato di asti, its my favorite!  Its sweet, light, sparkling, and so good!  I highly recommend testing the wines beforehand to find what you like (so you have an excuse to drink some wine).  Smile

I would recommend you try a sweeter Prosecco. They are light, a bit less on the dry side, and fun. I pink puffy heart Prosecco. πŸ™‚

Moet White Stars is great, but a little pricier $25 a bottle and then there’s this amazing prosecco (like lox suggested that I adore) Vincenzo Toffoli conigliano their Valddobbiadence Prosecco it’s about $14 a bottle ( I had to google that for the correct spelling πŸ™‚

I worked at a liquor store for 5 years (like a supermarket sized store), so I got to try a lot of different things. If you can arrange with a local place, or visit a liquor store when they do champagne tastings so you can try alot. you may want to look into doing a “flavored champagne”. There is a really nice strawberry/raspberry flavor that is super yummy and won’t hit you like regular champagne does.

You could also look into Prosecco, its Italian champagne.

my all time favorite – Chandon.

This explains the “sweetness” of champagne levels.
