Greetings and I think I listened to the show on the radio one day before T-day and if I remember there was mention of a Spanish version of a prosecco I would love to know about for the holidays! Great show and you talked about all sorts of fun drinks and lunch bowls on that program…liza

Hi Liza: The gang was referring to Spanish Cava. It’s sparkling wine, very similar to Prosecco and Champagne. . .just from Spain. Your flute won’t know the difference. 😉 You’ll find it anywhere wine is sold. Salud!
