How to make sparkling wine

I was in my local homebrew shop and they were selling off 30 bottle white wine kits half price as the date on them was August 2011. Now as we don’t drink much white we were thinking of trying to turn it in to sparkling wine for Christmas, but i have been given two different ways and was after a bit of clarification.Firstly, on the internet i found this:Produce your 6-gallon (23-L) wine kit (white or rosé) in the normal way up to the stabilizing and clearing day. Do not add the sulfite or sorbate (the stabilizers). This is very important because these packages contain enough sulfite and potassium sorbate to prevent the wine from carbonating properly.On the stabilizing and clearing day, dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of metabisulfite powder in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of cool water and add to the wine. This amount will prevent the wine from oxidising, but will not hamper yeast during bottle carbonation. Add the fining agents, following the kit instructions.
