At this point in human evolution, the mere sound of Ryan Seacrest counting backward from 10 causes a Pavlovian response that can only be cured by bubbly. But not everyone has Seacrest's bank account, so it's not always gonna rain Dom. Luckily, there's sparkling wine for every budget -- whether it's a low-price, cheap Champagne or a high-end brut -- and we've identified the best at each price point. Seacrest, out.
Segura Viudas brut Cava NV: $9
For real value in bubbles, the magic "C" is not Champagne -- it’s Cava. The Spanish sparkler is made in the same style as Champagne, but using different grapes, which leaves it leaner and less nutty than its French cohort. You can find great values with these dry and citrusy wines, like the Segura, which is one of the most reliable ways to get anyone dancing regrettably at a holiday party.
