PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It is the perfect pairing to ring in the new year — we are talking about champagne.

And it is fitting that Thursday is National Champagne Day.

And this month, the top three wines in Pennsylvania are sparkling wines. A glass of sparkling wine can you get intoxicated faster than a shot of spirits.
