Sparkling wine is bubbly due to its high levels of carbon dioxide. Most sparkling wines are white or rose. The sweetness of these wines ranges from very dry, known as “brut,” to sweeter types, known as “doux.”

Champagne is named for the region in France where it’s made, and only sparkling wine made there bears that name. Say cheers at midnight or any time with Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label, Moet & Chandon Champagne or Dom Perignon. For a rose option, try Moet & Chandon Rose.

For an affordable light sparkling wine with a fresh citrusy nose, try Domaine Collin Cremant De Limoux Brut.

Sparkling wine made in the Veneto region of Italy is known as Prosecco. Try La Marca Prosecco, with notes of apple, white peach and honeysuckle, or Cape Cod Bay Prosecco – DOC, imported from Italy, with flavors of pear and yellow apple, and a clean, bright, fresh finish.

Cava is the name given to sparkling wine that hails from Catalonia, Spain, such as Campo Viejo Cava Brut Reserva.

For something sparkly made right here in the U.S., indulge in sparkling wines from Roderer Estate or Korbel, both made in California.
