Avinyó Cava Reserva Brut, $16.99

I love bubbles in my wine, but my budget does not go very far in Champagne, so I am always on the look out for a good sparkling wine at a price that does not hurt my wallet. My pick for this month is Avinyo Cava Reserva Brut. Like many non-vintage Champagne wines,this Spanish sparkler spends 18 to 22 months on the lees before disgorgement, but it sells for one third the price of true Champagne. Clean fresh aromas of pear and light peach with a hint of honeysuckle all wrapped in an elegant and bright finish. A serious bargain for under $20.
