With New Year’s Eve right around the corner, it’s time to start talking about what matters most: champagne! Problem is, with so many selections of bubbly on the market today, it can be difficult to decide which bottle is best to pop at midnight.

Thankfully, famed sommelier Allegra Angelo, who has been working in the restaurant business since she was just 15 years old, has cultivated the perfect list of the best champagnes to drink while saying goodbye to 2020.

Allegra’s selections are rooted in decades’ worth of knowledge and experience. To date, she has developed more than 20 unique wine and spirit programs across the country! Moreover, Allegra, who is now Vinya’s in-house sommelier, has worked wine harvests in Burgundy, Tuscany and Spain. She’s also  received a number of major accolades and awards in the field, including the 2016 winner of TopSomm.
