Valentine’s Day Treats Under $50: Champagne

By Raya Ramsey |

Here’s a keep-it-for-yourself V-Day gift: champagne! Better yet… no date? Grab your girlfriends and share the following bottles of bub. Michael Lefko, head sommelier of Charlie Palmer’s restaurant here in Dallas, recommends the following three bottles, all under $50: Montsarra Cava for $21, Villa M Brachetto Rosso for $19, left, and the Diebolt-Vallois Tradition Champagne for $47. All are available for purchase the Next Vintage wine shop, adjacent to the restaurant.

*Correction: Diebolt-Vallois is actually the only bottle that is a true champagne. The other two are sparkling wines. (But still delicious.) Carry on.
