The best prosecco we’ve bought from UK supermarkets

Published by Finn Hayden

In the last 10 years, prosecco has come from nowhere to becoming one of the most popular types of wine in the UK. It has the sparkling classiness of champagne, but with a sweeter taste and without the price tag. Almost every UK supermarket has jumped on the prosecco bandwagon and started producing their own prosecco offering, to the point where it's actually quite confusing to decide where to buy from. We thought it would be useful to round up a list of the 5 best proseccos from the UK supermarkets, let's get into the list:

Tesco Finest Prosecco DOC

The Tesco Finest range is the slightly fancier, more expensive range of products from Tesco, and the prosecco in this range is excellent. Made in Italy, this prosecco is fruity (apple notes) and dry and was easily one of the best we tried from any UK supermarket. We also love that it keeps its fizz long after opening. Despite being in the more expensive Tesco Finest range, you can still grab a bottle for well under £10 (we found it for £8.50) and it is often on offer too. Learn more here - tesco.com

Co-op Irresistible Special Cuvée Prosecco

The Co-op is a supermarket which is well known for producing some of the best food ranges of all of the UK supermarkets, with their pizzas and cakes receiving lots of prestigious awards. The Co-op prosecco is also very good, and it's also award-winning with Which? magazine selecting it as the 'best Prosecco on the high street' in numerous issues. We thought this prosecco was full of fizz and we picked up notes of citrus and honey, it was definitely nice and sweet.

This 750ml bottle was £9 from our local Co-op, which is very reasonable for such quality. You can also buy a 200ml bottle which is ideal if you're drinking for one. Learn more and buy it here - coop.co.uk

Waitrose Prosecco

The first thing to note about this prosecco from Waitrose is that the supermarket has decided to simply call it 'Waitrose Prosecco', which we found quite funny. Despite the simplistic name, we found this drink to have plenty of character - it was very smooth and refreshing, making it ideal for summer drinking. Plus, despite Waitrose generally being the most expensive supermarket in the UK, this prosecco was very reasonably priced at £7.49 for a 750ml bottle, which is actually one of the cheapest options in this list.

Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco

Similar to the Tesco Finest range, the Taste the Difference range from Sainsbury's is pricier than their standard range but tends to be of a higher quality. That's certainly the case with the Conegliano Prosecco from Sainsbury's, which is a very enjoyable drink. It's smooth and not too sweet, which we think makes it perfectly suited for any Christmas gatherings involving sweet treats like mince pies! It also works excellently for an Aperol Spritz. It's a little pricey but try to get it on offer if you can, check it out here - sainsburys.co.uk

Lidl Allini Prosecco Spumante

Of course Lidl had to pop up in this list - despite being perceived as a small supermarket chain, they always manage to rival the big guys in every category, and their prosecco offering is no different. The product page lists this prosecco as having pear notes and plenty of fizz, and we'd agree.

And if you're wondering how much this prosecco is, it's only £6.49 per 75cl bottle. Super cheap! Learn more here - lidl.co.uk
