Four fab… supermarket Proseccos

This summer I have adored sipping a flute of fizz topped by a strawberry (or two!) in our garden. But this is clearly not the cheapest of pastimes. As such, I’ve made a bit of a habit of seeking our the nicest – and crucially – best value bottles of Prosecco from supermarkets.

After some (not really tough at all research) these are my four favs…

Supermarket Prosecco

Summertime is made for sipping Prosecco in the garden

The details: Waitrose Prosecco NV, £9.39.
The taste: Has a dry finish and luscious fruity aromas, with maybe a touch of almond
Important notes: Reduced to £6.99 for the last week or so – so snap up a couple to enjoy with the last of the summer’s sunshine.

The details: The Co-op’s Prosecco DOC Special Cuvée Brut, £10.49
The taste: Floral and with some peachy perfumes.
Important notes: Reduced to £6.99 until September 16. This bottle also picked up a Which? magazine “best buy” award in 2013.

The details: Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Prosecco Conegliano DOCG 2012, £9.99
The taste: Sweeter than many others it’s not harsh at all
Important notes: Frequently on offer, but seems to sell out fast…

The details: Asda’s Extra Special Prosecco NV, £8.25
The taste: Smooth and only gently fruity
Important notes: This fizz has won awards and has been reduced to £6.50 for much of the summer

Prosecco contains 15-16g of sugar per litre compared to 9-10g for Champagne and is, as a rule of thumb, creamier than cava. No wonder Prosecco started outselling last year Champagne…
