Sparkling Wine Gifts: Top Bottles

NV Casteller Brut Cava ($10)

A terrific wine to buy by the case for holiday parties, this crisp cava has pretty, sweet citrus peel notes.

2010 Bera Moscato d'Asti ($18)

Shout-outs from rappers like Drake have made sweet Moscato a best-seller in the US. This one, from Piedmont's Asti region, has orange blossom and honeysuckle aromas.

NV Sorelle Bronca Extra Dry Prosecco ($18)

Artisan Prosecco is getting much better thanks to producers like the Bronca sisters, who make this floral bottling with organic grapes.

NV Scharffenberger Brut ($19)

Cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from northern California give this wine spice and bright, appley fruit.

NV Jean Laurent Blanc de Blancs ($52)

This elegant grower Champagne makes a great aperitif, but it's also rich enough to drink through dinner.
