Hi - any idea which place would be best to buy champagne? Cost U Less or the place over by the port? Anyone have a rough estimate? I know it varies by size, brand, etc. Just trying to get an idea for the cost of a champagne toast. Thanks!

Champagne or bubbly wine is availble almost everywhere, from very affordable less than 20 per bottle, to many times more than that. Most grocery stores and maàny corner stores seem to have it. Last trip in Pelican key,we got some in the grocery store beside Atrium, and some more in the Peli Deli.

Well.... shouldn't mix up or confuse "Champagne" with Bubbly Wine... They are two different things.
Champagne is from France, from the region of Champagne (North East of France,on the Belgium Border), and is made according to a specific method and rules that demands a secondary fermentation in the bottle itself... Everything else, is Bubbly wine.
Champagne is really under $20 a bottle and if it is, I would hesitate buying it as I would question its quality.

Kind Regards,
Philippe
