As an American holiday that involves fireworks, there’s only one thing to drink: American sparkling wine! A few domestic wineries use the same grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and winemaking method as Champagne. Here are a few I like:
Iron Horse: Often served at White House dinners, they well represent domestic sparkling wine.

J Vineyards Cuvee 20 Brut: This Russian River Valley sparkler has classic yellow apple and almond notes.
$33 BUY HERE
Domaine Carneros: One of my favorite domestic sparkling wine producers, from California’s Carneros appellation spanning both Sonoma and Napa. Can’t go wrong with the Brut, the rosé, or their higher-end Le Rêve which is my mom’s favorite.
