14 Affordable Sparkling Wine Brands to Help You Celebrate Anything

Pop champagne (or something like it) during your next big occasion without breaking the bank.

Many times, when there's something to celebrate (the new year, an engagement, brunch), people often suggest popping some champagne. But then, once we get to the liquor store, we find that a bottle is going to set us way back, and the thrill of celebrating is a bit dampened. "Real champagne used to be cheaper for us to get here in the States, but because of the tariffs, prices have gone up," says Catherine Lo, Food Editor, Hearst Lifestyle Food Group. Contrary to belief, however, that doesn't mean you can't grab something equally festive and delicious at a way better price.

In fact, champagne is sparkling wine, it's just the region in which it's made (Champagne, France) that gives it its name and price tag. A lot of sparkling wine that's made in California, which you'll find at a cheaper price, follows the same creation method as traditional champagne.

Along with the experts in the Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen, we've rounded up a list of affordable sparkling wines that include prosecco, cava, and yes, even some real champagne. All of the selects below will also create that iconic pop sound, and let's face it, that's half the fun anyway. For more affordable wine options, check out our list of wines under $20.

A top pick of sparkling wine from South Africa, the small bubbles release a blent of apple and critus fruit. The brut is sometimes called the &ldquoPresident&rsquos Choice&rdquo as it was served at Nelson Mandela&rsquos inauguration and to celebrate Barack Obama&rsquos presidential nomination, according to the company's press release.

A fruity taste without being overwhelming sweet, few prosceccos are as fresh as a bottle of La Marca. Ideal on its own or if you are making up a batch of mimosas.

An abundance of bubbles will hit your lips once you open this fruity bottle, which includes three types of grapes for full flavor.

For $20, the Chandon Brut has the look and taste of a much more expensive bottle. It has a classic tart flavor that's ideal for a dinner with seafood.

One of the best sparkling rosé we've ever tasted, the bottle has cherry, strawberry, and floral notes. Once you pull it out of the fridge, you're instantly hit with a crisp and refreshing flavor. It's only available in-stores (click here to check your zip code). You can also try the chardonnay version, which is available online!

Coming in under $10 (yes, really!), the citrus and green apple flavors come through in a crisp and inviting way that's more on the dry side.

Lower in alcohol than others on this list, this wine is produce with the white Muscat grape, which gives it a light and fruity taste.

You won't be disappointed when you pop open this brut that pairs perfectly with chicken, seafood, or sweet treats.

A blend of Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarello grapes give this brut cava from Spain its sweet yet smokey flavor.

You'll taste a blend of fruits, including apple, along with a hint of honey in this proscecco. It's very dry and light, and can be served perfectly in an aperol spritz.

An often top-rated bottle, Lanson's Le Black Label Brut Champagne is smooth and citrusy.

The 100% chardonnay blend and the small but inviting bubbles make this brut clean and crisp. It's an ideal sipping sparkling wine, or it can be served with appetizers.

Apples and peaches come through delightfully in this prosecco. The delicate flavor makes this an ideal sipping drink.

For the summer only, Cameron Diaz and her partner Katherine Power have released a delicious sparkling rosé that's super crisp and balanced. The half bottle portion is perfect for when you want to enjoy a drink with a friend.

Pop champagne (or something like it) during your next big occasion without breaking the bank.

Many times, when there's something to celebrate (the new year, an engagement, brunch), people often suggest popping some champagne. But then, once we get to the liquor store, we find that a bottle is going to set us way back, and the thrill of celebrating is a bit dampened. "Real champagne used to be cheaper for us to get here in the States, but because of the tariffs, prices have gone up," says Catherine Lo, Food Editor, Hearst Lifestyle Food Group. Contrary to belief, however, that doesn't mean you can't grab something equally festive and delicious at a way better price.

In fact, champagne is sparkling wine, it's just the region in which it's made (Champagne, France) that gives it its name and price tag. A lot of sparkling wine that's made in California, which you'll find at a cheaper price, follows the same creation method as traditional champagne.

Along with the experts in the Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen, we've rounded up a list of affordable sparkling wines that include prosecco, cava, and yes, even some real champagne. All of the selects below will also create that iconic pop sound, and let's face it, that's half the fun anyway. For more affordable wine options, check out our list of wines under $20.
