With holiday cheer abounding, I thought I would mention a value sparkler that stands up well alone or adorned with creme de cassis for kir royales. Zardetto Prosecco is relatively easy to find. I have seen it priced as low as $10/bottle. It is dry, but citrusy, light-bodied and refreshing.
So in a virtual toast, we raise our glasses to you, our wonderful readers: Cheers! May your holidays be full of flavor and delight.
