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…
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
