Instant Wine Smarts
Get to Know ProseccoProsecco is a delicious sparkling white wine from Venice that costs half the price of Champagne. Keep a bottle on ice in the refrigerator and you'll always be ready to celebrate at a moment's notice. And try to find something to celebrate every 6 months. "Champagne and sparkling whites are very frail, and have a shelf life of only 6 months to a year," says Willie Gluckstern, author of Wine Avenger (Fireside, $13). He recommends any Prosecco by Zardetto ($15, wine.com).
Toasting with flutes is a must. A flat, wide-mouthed glass or fruit-cocktail cup disperses the bubbles instantly. "And what's the point in celebrating without bubbles?" says Gluckstern.
