With Marcus Hofschuster's almost 120 sparkling wine recommendations from six growing countries, Christmas and New Year's Eve evenings become something special despite Corona. He has never been as enthusiastic about German sparkling wines as he has been over the course of this year. In these times, it's not glamour that counts, but quality: the fireworks ignite in the glass this time

If Christmas and New Year's Eve parties unfortunately have to be cancelled this year, perhaps it's time to remember an old rule: It doesn't take a special occasion to drink first-class wine. The wine itself becomes the occasion. This is no less true for the sparkling versions than for still wine, at least when it's really good. And what better way to illuminate a temperate mood than with a decent champagne, the finest spumante, vintner's sparkling wine or cava? This also works in the smallest circle, in an emergency even alone.
