You Need to Drink this Budget-Friendly Alternative to Champagne

Cremant de Alsace is a sparkling wine made by the same method as Champagne that is cheap enough to be weeknight-friendly, but good enough to crack open on a special occasion.

If you’re looking for the right celebration-libation for your next big occasion, it’s worth noting there are lots of sparkling wines from France that aren’t in the right postal code to be called Champagne but are sincerely every bit as good. One region you need to know about if you want to be bubble-literate is Alsace, the magical wine-producing area near the French-German border. Alsace is not the only place where Crémant sparkling wines are produced (you’ll also see Crémant from Bordeaux, Limoux, Burgundy and the Loire Valley for example), but it is where you’ll find some of the best ones.
