Happy Champagne Day. I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t really need an excuse to get excited about a glass or two of bubbly. Almost all of my favourite moments have included a crisp glass of bubbly in my hand, and I am yet to turn down an offer to celebrate anything that involves a cheeky little cheers with friends and family. Which brings us to today. Today is Champagne day, so it only seems fair to honour it by spending the weekend drinking bubbly. Here are 7 seriously delicious and affordable bubbly’s that we love. All for under R150.
