Hello All -
My fiancee and I are having an engagement party this weekend and we would like to have some champagne to do a toast. We love champagne but our guest couldn't tell the difference between sparkling wine and real champagne. We don't want to spead the $$ for the real deal but we don't want to loose the taste and quality.
My questions is, what is a good sparkling wine that wont skimp out on taste but is still easy on the wallet? I have had Zardetto Proseco and Sergio which are both great, anyone else have some suggestions?

Somewhere between 10 and 15

I would agree with Adam on Gloria Ferrer. I would add in Domaine Carneros but both I think would be more like $15 to $20.
But in your price range I'd go with Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut. Plus, the bottle looks cool. :-)

With people that don't know much about sparkling wine, often Asti Spumante is a hit. You can sometimes find it for under $10. People like to drink it because it is a bit sweet, but maybe that's not what you are going for.
Gloria Ferrer is a favorite of mine as well.

Thanks all for the information and help, it sounds like the Gloria Ferrer or the Freixenet Cordon might be the one.
