Christmas fizz to add a bit of sparkle to your festive celebrations.

Tesco Cava Brut, Spain NV (£5.85, Tesco) That cava is such a great value for money sparkling wine is seen as both a blessing

and a curse by vintners in the Penedès region of Catalonia,

where almost everything is produced. It's actually a boon for those on a budget this birthday party season

 as we can get a tasty, authentically fermented toasted lime bubbly drink in the bottle like Tesco's for under £6.

it seems, for some of the high-quality Catalan sparkling wine brands, who choose to bottle their wines without cava on the label

convinced that their cheap recognition is a drag on what they can (and must) pay if they need to earn life first. 

 I can see their factor, and the effervescence of Gramona and Recaredo

part of Corpinnat's rival affiliation created with a group of spun off luxury brands in 2015, deserves to be seen for what it is.
