Gloria Ferrer is arguably the biggest bang for the buck when it comes to California sparkling wine. Gloria Ferrer sparklers are invariably fresh, flavorful, and balanced, with forward fruit flavors, lively acidity (thanks to cool climate grape growing in Sonoma County and the Carneros region), and mellow yeast and nut qualities. Our favorites are the Blanc de Noirs (made primarily from Pinot Noir, with a delicate pink hue); Blanc de Blancs (made from 100% Chardonnay); and the Sonoma Brut (a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). All offer a large measure of finesse for $20 (or sometimes less), and at their quality and price are a sophisticated and economical choice for celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Better yet, Gloria Ferrer sparklers can easily be found in most major grocery stores, large wine retailers, and through online wine merchants.
