Sparkle your way into the New Year!

Sparkle your way into the New Year. 

I've been very intrigued with bubbles in my water and naturally my wine. Finding a sparkling wine that works for you isn't really difficult just need to know what you are looking for and how to read the labels.

Courtesy of Wine Folly here is a breakdown of the sugar content in various sparkling wines. This was helpful for me because I don't necessarily like super sweet wines. A dry sparkling wine might be as sweet as it gets for me at the moment. This helps since I will be blindly selecting some wine for a New Year's eve dinner this weekend.
