Meet the Sparklings: Moscato Spumante

Hold up, wait a minute, what’s a California wine doing with the name Champagne on it’s label?! Because, yes, the Barefoot brand is most definitely a California-produced wine, but they’ve been using the Champagne name since before it was “outlawed” in 2006 so they have special dispensation, as long as it clearly says its home […]

Meet the Sparklings: Prosecco

Have you ever idly wondered what the difference is between Champagne and Prosecco?
