Sparkling Stand-Ins

A customer loves Champagne but doesn’t love the price tag. What do you recommend?

Franciacorta
A well-made Franciacorta such as Ca’ Del Bosco Cuvée Prestige. Most people have never heard of it, it’s made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero in Italy) in the Champagne method. Lorie O’Sullivan ,Toronto


Cava
Many experts will be fooled by its similarity to Champagne in a blind tasting. Although the grapes are different, they have similar characteristics and Cava is often made using the traditional Champenoise method. Sara d’Amato,Toronto


Homegrown
I would suggest some of the awesome, value-for-money, traditional-method sparklings from places like Niagara or the Okanagan. Pieter Vanden Weghe, Ottawa
