RECOMMENDED: New Year's Eve in NYC
Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee ($11)
Don’t be fooled by the cutesy name and the cheap price—this sweet chardonnay from California is sure to please.
Prosecco Mionetto ($14)
Fact: Prosecco is just as good as Champagne, and Mionetto happens to be this writer's personal favorite. It's refreshing, flavorful and, most importantly, under $20!
Gruet Blanc de Noirs NV ($18)
Creamy, fruity and certainly budget-friendly, this kick-ass libation from a winemaking family in France (that operates out of New Mexico) is the ultimate value.
Crémant de Bourgogne Moissenet-Bonnard NV ($25)
A bottle of Crémant bubbly is a pretty close second to Champagne, but for half the price of a high-class bottle. We'll cheers to that! It's smooth, fizzy goodness in a glass.
Pol Roger Brut Réserve ($35)
As far as medium-bodied sparkling wines go, this one can’t be beat. And while the bottle stems from a small company, the taste is mighty fine.
