There were plenty of expensive bottles popped open and enjoyed at Dorothy Lane Market's Champagne Soirée on Dec. 27, but there were plenty of affordable bottles as well.
New Year's Eve may have come and gone, but there will be plenty of celebrations between now and Dec. 31, 2019 — birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, births or maybe just for a quiet, romantic Friday night.
Here are five bubbly bottles sold at DLM and other stores that are under $20 to consider for your next celebration:

Why buy? Subtle with a clean finish. The label is fancy and the taste and the look will impress your guests while the price tag impresses your wallet.
Mionetto Prosecco Brut, $14
Why buy? This is a great bottle to start out the evening. Fresh, dry and light it will complement nearly anything it is served with.
La Vieille Ferme Réserve Rosé, $16
