    Does anybody have a rec for an inexpensive sparkling wine that tastes good? Preferably neither very sweet nor very dry.

    Thanks!

      I'd try Rosa Regale. It's about $20 a bottle. Rosa Regale

        Prosecco is becoming a popular substitute for champagne. It is a dry sparkling wine but you can add peach puree to make it into a Bellini.

          The owner of the my liquor store recommended Arbor Mist because alot of people use it for wedding toasts. Arbor Mist comes in many flavors. Also, I just tried Korbel brut and it didn't taste too sweet at all but was a little dry. What you can do is try one of these and see which one you like the best. I know Arbor Mist was about $7 and I can't remember what the price was for Korbel.

            How cheap do ya wanna go? I've had Andre Spumante and it is $4.50 a bottle! It's not bad, especially after a couple glasses!

              My saturday Misosa of choice is Henknell Blanc de blanc. It pairs really well with OJ! It's a sort of tradition with my group of friends! It also stands well on its own. It's a bit sweet but not so much if you get what I mean!

                Thanks for the recs! I have favorite low cost wines, but haven't been able to find a sparkling wine that suits me.
