Prosecco sales see no sign of slowing down, and Christmas is a perfect excuse to stock up on your favourites. There are often deals available at supermarkets and wine merchants, so keep an eye out for the best Prosecco offers.
Prosecco’s USP is its light, fruity character and affordable pricing – it’s not attempting to copy Champagne and as a result has carved out its own (significant) corner of the market. Be aware that not all Proseccos are equal, however. Prosecco DOC and Prosecco Treviso DOC tend to be the most affordable, perfect for a lunchtime quaffer or aperitif.
Step up to the DOCGs of Asolo, Valdobbiadene Superiore, Valdobbiadene Superiore Rive and Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze and you will get sparkling wines made from better fruit from the best hillside sites, giving wines that can challenge some of the best sparkling wines from other regions in terms of complexity and quality.
You may be surprised to see that you can buy some of these higher category wines for under £20: see our list below.
