Your Valentine’s Bubbly Personality

by TGC Staff | February 3, 2003 12:00 am

Few things in life hold the seductive allure of a flute filled with sparkling wine; few sounds say “I love you” more eloquently than the succinct POP of its cork. Let’s face it: bubbles are romantic. So what better way of asking, “Will you be mine?” this Valentine’s Day than to offer--and open--a bottle of bubbly?

Not all sparkling wine is Champagne, of course; that name refers only to sparkling wines produced in the Champagne region of France.

So before you automatically reach for the Champagne this Valentine's Day, think again, for there are dozens of different types of sparkling wine out there: one for every personality, every mood, every price range. Don’t know whether your true love would prefer an Italian Prosecco to a German Sekt? Or maybe an American sparkling wine? Then you’ll love our little quiz. Just skim down the list to see which type fits your sweetheart’s bubbly personality, and chose your bubbles accordingly.
