Oh no! I was going to recommend a prosecco from Costco/Whole Foods (seen it both places), maybe it’s available elsewhere?

This is the label:

Aww. Well if you can’t find it, I don’t know if they make sparking moscatos, but that’s what I’d pick if there was a cheap one available. Cheap dessert wine doesn’t have a major risk of tasting bad like other cheap wines can, thank goodness 🙂

Moscato is a sweet wine.  I think a good sparkling wine is Asti Italian sparkling wine.  I think they have it at Trader Joe’s for $7 or $9 a bottle.  It tastes so good too!

I just saw my sister bought a moscato spumante that Andre makes!! Mmmmm!! Spumante is my fave, add MOSCATO ontop of that! OMG! I can’t wait for my bridal shower!

 

It’s most likely available at any wal mart or food lion

We just used Verdi spumante. It’s like $4 a bottle and delicious. A lot of people don’t like the taste of champagne, so it’s silly to spend a ton of money just for the toast when it’s likely many people won’t even drink the whole glass. Going with a cheap spumante or moscato is a great way to go because it is still usually delicious. 

If you’re offering champagne as a drink to order, though, it is probably best to offer something nicer.

We bought Andre Spumante for $4.50 a bottle at Food Lion.  It is really nice – I couldn’t tell the difference between that and Martini & Rossi at $14 a bottle!

As a proud half French woman I love Champagne.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  I drink champagne as it was wine.  People always ask me what I am celebrating when I buy a case at the store…. I am really just stocking up…. my god this makes me sound like a drunken lush but I think the point is made.

For as many champagnes and sparklings that I have tasted there is one that I buy all the time to just open when I feel like having a glass.  Domaine Ste. Michelle.  It is a sparkling made in Washington.  http://www.domaine-ste-michelle.com/  If you have a Trader Joe’s it is $6.99 a bottle.  It is absolutely delicious!
