Champagne is excellent but who can afford $70 and up for a bottle these days. I’ll let you in on a secret, Cava ( as sparkling wine from Spain is called ) can rival good champagne for $12.95 a bottle ,that’s right $12.95! Cava has similar flavors, taste and style and even the time consuming secondary fermentation in the bottle as champagne. This season my go to is Cristalino Cava Brut NV from J.G.Carrion (SKU 551218) $12.95, available at BC Liquor Stores and some private liquor stores this season. Cheers!
