Celebrate the New Year 2018: Sparkling Wine Round Up!

We’re just a few short days from New Year’s Eve — and let’s face it, popping some bubbly is an international tradition. Luckily, I just ran a whole series dedicated to sparkling wine, so if you still aren’t stocked up for the big night, you’ve got a ton of options to chose from. Of course, make sure you read up on your Champagne 101 and Prosecco basics so you know¬†how to chose the best bubbles for you and your crowd.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM BRISCOEBITES!
