Good Sparkling Wine for Toasting
Unless you are serving the finest of Champagnes, no one really drinks sparkling wines at a wedding. But sparkling wine is very festival to have for the toast portion of the day. You can get some very nice ones from $10 - $15 per bottle. Try a CAVA, the Spanish "Champagne". These are normally very dry (Brut) and made in the Methode Champenoise style just like the real stuff. Gloria Ferrer from the Carneros region in California is also a good choice. These wines look classy without breaking the budget. Find other well priced sparkling wines at Costco. If you don't drink sparkling wine at all, most people simply pour wine for the toast and raise their glass. In this case, we can recommend the wines that you are drinking throughout your dinner. This is just as polite.
