New Year’s Sparklers: Bubbles for Every Budget

If it feels like New Year’s Eve snuck up on you this year, you’re not alone. It’s been a whirlwind 2009, what with the economy, bizarre weather patterns, missed Olympic opportunities and too many scandals in Illinois politics to really want to rehash. With that, it’s about time to put this year behind us and focus on a great 2010, and what better way to do that than with a fantastic bubbly toast on Thursday night. Whether you start your night with some prosecco or cava or hold out for a midnight toast with the big guns, your New Year’s plan should include some sort of sparkling wine.

Another stunner is the Schramsberg Brut Rose, made in Napa Valley primarily of Pinot Noir grapes but is then balanced with Chardonnay. It has a gorgeous pink hue and is a crisp, dry sparkling wine that goes well with a variety of food, from seafood to chicken to even filet mignon due to its balanced fruit and acidity.
