Today. we’ll start ATL & CO by toasting with an easy to find, affordable sparkling wine that’s a festive way to celebrate the day. (Remember the “Partyologist” Part of my title? I teach both Healthy Food AND Yummy Wine classes.)

 I’ll have three excellent choices that viewers can enjoy from even the grocery store (ALL under $20) and I will give them the scoop on wines:

  • CAVA from Spain
  • Prosecco from Italy
  • An American Sparkler from ARIZONA!

Then  fun host Christine and I will make two easy, delicious and fun toasts to enjoy with our sparklers. Both or these are so easy – no cooking required that even the kiddos can make them!
