"A friend of mine runs a “high end” spa.  She has an interest in, and requests for,  “Therapeutic Baths” (milk, mud, mineral, salts, & Champagne, to name a few). Champagne is the most costly, as you would suspect.  Her thought is to find an extremely cheap white wine, dilute it with carbonated water for effervescence, and call it “Champagne”, thereby making this “Fad Bath” more affordable." - Rick
