"My first choice is definitely the Untamed Vine. I think that this definitely showed everything that I love about California and California wines."
One thing that many of the reviewers did agree on was that most of these wines are worth their price.
There's more to sparkling wine than just Champagne. Prosecco from Italy and Cava from Spain generally cost less but are often their own enjoyable experience.
These wines will often have "above-board agricultural practices, native-yeast fermentation, and no additives beyond minimal sulfuring."
Many of the virtual tastings are free to join, and some ship wine right to your door as part of the package.
