Still, the reality is that most sparkling wine is purchased and consumed during the holidays. Some people will splurge and buy a special bottle of Champagne. (Although some California bubblies are labeled as "champagne," true Champagne comes from a defined area of northern France, east of Paris.) But if you're serving a lot of people on New Year's Eve, or you're simply on a more limited budget, California offers some great values in sparkling wine.
Wine Club India I'm not talking about the really inexpensive stuff, wines that get their bubbles in a pressurized tank. At this time of year, when discounts abound, you can find high-quality California wines made in the traditional method (the bubbles are produced during a secondary fermentation in the bottle) for less than $20. Those brands include Roederer Estate, Gloria Ferrer, Mumm Napa and Chandon.
Wine Business In India My go-to sparkling wine is the non-vintage Roederer Estate Brut ($24, but easy to find for less than $20). The Anderson Valley winery, owned by Champagne Louis Roederer, produces bubbly that is very French in spirit: lively and flavorful with a hint of toastiness and fine texture. The Roederer Estate Brut Rosé ($29) is also quite elegant, with creamy red fruit. Roederer's sister brand, Scharffenberger Cellars, costs a little less and is nearly as good, especially the Brut Rosé Excellence ($23). Roederer also produces more expensive bubblies under the L'Ermitage label.

Trempealeau, WI (WXOW) - - The holidays are in full swing, and that means people are likely scurrying around, making their last minute Christmas purchases—which affects Elmaro Vineyard & Winery in Trempealeau.
Wines From India At Elmaro Vineyard, the end of the year is important, because 70% of their wholesale business comes between October and the New Year. "For Christmas presents and shipping, this is a huge time of the year for us,” Elmaro Vineyard Co-Owner Lynita Docken Delaney said.
Wine Club India Elmaro Vineyard has been growing and planting their own grapes since 1976, but their winery has been in business since 2011. They work year-round, importing fruits and juices from Arkansas and New York. Currently, they are busy bottling, stabilizing, and testing wines (they handle about 80,000 bottles of wine per year), and they are only growing—Elmaro Vineyard hopes to expand from eight acres to 80 acres within the next few years, which Docken Delaney said is a “problem they are happy to have”.

The holidays are a time for celebrating, and toasting with some bubbly has become synonymous with the season.
The Wine Society Of India Only wine produced from grapes grown in France’s Champagne region can be called Champagne, but Long Island is home to a distinctly East End take on the sparkling tradition.
Wines From India has two méthode champenoise wines on offer this holiday season—the Noblesse Oblige Sparkling Rosé as well as Blanc de Blanc 2011. “Winemaker Roman Roth works in a meticulous traditional way, which gives our sparkling wines that unmistakable fine CO2 mousse and yeast character of great bubbly,” Brown says of the selection of Wölffer sparklings.

Wineries In India It’s a two-act ballet choreographed by Petipa and Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky based on an adaptation from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King . The story starts on Christmas Eve with a family gathering and exchange of presents. One of the presents is a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man that grows to life-size at midnight as magic mice and gingerbread soldiers engage in battle. The nutcracker is transformed into a handsome prince by Clara, the young heroine of the story, and after many adventures in the Land of Sweets they are crowned rulers, celebrated by the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier .
The Wine Society Of India Our dining room table had been decorated with a myriad of large and small nutcrackers as we sat down with friends to sample red wines from the Americas — two wines from South America and four from California.
