The 6 sparkling wines you won’t want to miss this festive season

The 6 best sparkling wines for the festive season

The festive season is just around the corner and those party invitations are starting to come in. People often say don’t bring a thing (but of course you know they don’t mean it and you absolutely should).

Whether it is just pre-dinner drinks or a full sit down feast, champagne or sparkling wine is a great choice. And if your host already has cocktails or wine flowing and it doesn’t get opened, it seamlessly becomes a gift without anyone getting offended.

In Australia, the best bubbles come from cold places which means Tasmania rules the fizzy roost. You can also get great Italian style Proseccos from cool climate areas like the King Valley in Victoria.
