Help! Korbel Sparkling Wine vs. Codorniu Classico Cava

bluedog | Feb 8, 2010 10:33 AM

My wife and I are going on a cruise this week and the only two reasonably priced non-champagne sparking wines on offer are Korbel and Codorniu, with the Codorniu being touted as the more premium of the two.

Without going into the ins and outs of cruising, we need to choose from among two wine packages only one of which (the pricier one) includes the Codorniu,

We are both big fans of bubbly, but Codorniu is not our favourite. Further, we are from Canada and Korbel is not available where we live so we've never tried it. This site refers to Korbel as an ubiquitous supermarket brand, at least in California. Not promising but we're leaning towards it.

So my question is, how to do they compare?

Are we going to try the Korbel and get a headache? Is it dry? Any input is appreciated.
