Loprraine,
If you are planning to stop by Trader Joe's, give it a try to these Prosecco alternatives: German NV Schloss Biebrich Sekt ($ 4.00) and French N.V. Comte de Galeyran Blanquette de Limoux Brut ($ 5.00).
They are both excelent values and in my opinion better than the Prosecco, specially for entertaining a crowd affordably.

Thanks, W! I'll check them out next time I'm in the States.

I checked out TJ's website. Not one store in all of Virginia!!

Sorry about that Loprraine, Trader Joe's has a few stores in Michigan (Detroit suburbs). Unfortunately, I am not longer working for Ford... I used to go a lot to the Oakville Assembly Plant (I could had bring you some) :(

we have plenty of TJs in md, but sadly enough, the wacky liquor laws here prohibit the sale of ANY kind of booze in the grocery store. so both our TJs and our world markets are lacking their usual super (A+ selection, A+ value) wine areas.
