An occasion to celebrate is also another opportunity to save money on alcohol, especially when it comes to champagne. We did some digging and found the best cheap champagne you can get for under $21, starting at just $0.28 per ounce.
In our research, we found that prosecco is often considered a cheaper alternative to champagne, so we included a few bottles of it on this list, too. They’re very similar, but the difference comes down to the grapes and the production methods.
Basically, champagne is made from the same grapes that make up Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes that are double fermented — once in a tank and again in the bottle. Prosecco, on the other hand, is made from grapes that grow in the Veneto and Fiuli areas of Italy and is fermented in large tanks. Plus, prosecco is way cheaper if you want the mouthfeel of champagne but don’t want to spend $40 on a bottle.
Either way, below you can find some affordable champagne and prosecco that you can purchase online or in stores. For more savings on alcohol, we also have some info on cheap vodka, wine subscriptions, and how to wrap a wine bottle — so be sure to check these out, too.
