Does anyone have a suggestion for a great sparkling wine in the $30 range or under for a New Year's Eve celebration?

      Thank you Zack! I appreciate your help. I saw that it is rated 91 points and received a highly recommended designation from the Wine Spectator. I am visiting Pentagon City, VA and will try to obtain a bottle.

      Cheers.

        Thanks for the great recommendation Zack! We bought a bottle of domaine carneros brut 2002 and thought it was marvelous. (The store was out of 2003 which I understand is slightly better.)

        Happy New Year.

        Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut NV is a reliable crowd pleaser for about $20. Cava is also a good choice for parties.

          Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs or Blanc de Noir are both excellent and should be available for less than $30, though it seems like the price has gone up a little lately.
