bohigas-cavaDo you enjoy a nice glass of Champagne? Wish you could drink it more frequently than special occasions? Or need a couple of bottles for a holiday toast? This is just the bottle for you!!

Champagne is only Champagne when it comes from Champagne. And due to its labor intensive production method and small quantities, authentic Champagne starts at around $40. But, delicious values can be found outside of the Champagne region, wines like the Bohigas Cava from Spain for $15.

This wine is made in the same method as Champagne which includes “secondary fermentation” in the bottle (this is how the bubbles happen). As well it spends 24 months on the lees to gain a nice rich yeasty note. This truly offers a lot of “Champagne” value for a much lower price point, low enough to open two bottles!
