The (Ice) Bucket List: Great Sparkling Wines and Where to Buy Them

Gatherings and celebrations provide ample excuse to pop open a bottle of bubbly, but here's the secret: You can have sparkling wine year round and it can be enjoyed with an entire meal, not just to start one off. My Bay Area Bubbles series explored the local wineries making bubbles, and now I'm bringing you a list of great stores to buy those, Champagne, and other sparkling wine from here and beyond.

I've enlisted the help of three of San Francisco's best sommeliers to build a focused list of stores and bottles to help the spendy or sparing. Here are a few picks from Mark Bright (Saison), Ian Burrows (Atelier Crenn), and Sian Nagan (Quince).
