CHRISTMAS isn’t the same without a glass of bubbly - and we’ve rounded up the cheapest deals to help you celebrate. We’ve looked at prices
CHRISTMAS isn’t the same without a glass of bubbly – and we’ve rounded up the cheapest deals to help you celebrate.
We’ve looked at prices of champagne, cava and prosecco in all the major supermarkets to find out where you’ll get the most bubble for your pounds.
It’ll come as no surprise that Aldi and Lidl were cheapest across all three types of drinks, with Tesco and Asda not far behind.
But as the festive season draws nearer, you can expect all the supermarkets to launch deals on bubbly.
This means you’ll want to check prices again when you’re ready to make a purchase just in case costs have been slashed.
Of course, price comparison doesn’t take into account the quality or taste of the alcohol.
The below prices are accurate at the time of writing and based on what each supermarket has available online.
What is the different between champagne, cava and processo?
CHAMPAGNE, cava and prosecco are all different types of sparkling wines, but each one has its own taste and is made differently.
Champagne: Champagne is traditionally made in the historical province of the same name in the northeast of France.
Vinyards get the bubbles in their champagne using an ancient technique called méthode champenoise.
After the wine’s first fermentation, yeast and sugar are added to the wine triggering another fermentation. Once capped, each bottle is then left for at least 15 months and are turned regularly
Prosecco: Prosecco is made in the Veneto region of Italy using a variety of grape called Glera.
There are two types of Prosecco, DOC and DOCG.
DOCG signifies that the Prosecco is higher quality as all the picking is done by hand due to the steep hillsides the vineyards are on.
Cava: Cava comes from Spain and uses Macabeu, Parellada, and Xarello grapes.
Chardonnay or Pinot grapes can also be used.
It is fermented in the bottle like its French counterpart, but as it is produced outside of France, its production method is referred to as méthode traditionnelle.
