I love this short video.

We each have our own reasons for enjoying the bubbles. Sparkling is often associated with a special celebration, such as a birthday, anniversary, job promotion, retirement, or other milestone. I celebrate each day, when I open a bottle of sparkling wine. Some days it might be a cremant, some days a California sparkling, and some days a Champagne.
But I do save the more expensive or special bottles for a bigger occasion. I have a few on hand for just such things. But I keep plenty of “every day” sparkling aorund, my latest being the 451 form Healdsburg. I am also partial to cremants from Loire, France, and several California sparklings (Domaine Carneros, Laetitia, J, and Roederer.
Whatever you do, I say open often, and enjoy!
