Think of Raumland Riesling Brut as a fine substitution of those expensive champagne (though not cheap). It may not be as fine and elegant as champagne but should serve well enough. I like the character that does not show toasty nutty/almond nose like prosecco. It is an impressive one. Delicious with fresh seafood like sushi. Give it a try if you see one.
