We’re in the middle of Fizzmas, so obviously I know people like to pop a lot of bubbly around the holidays. But really, you gotta get more in the treat yourself mindset because there’s at least one thing you can find every day that’s awesome to celebrate. In? Enter 365 Days of Bubbles, which is about one of the best ideas I’ve heard.
Domaine Carneros is such a good bubbly option. They’re a partner of Taittinger so it’s good, and their entry level is only $28 though they have higher-end ones like Le Reve which goes for $99. They’ve created a package that will bring you bubbles for every day of the year – here’s what’s in the 365-bottle package:
