£8 champagne offer and thrifty festive wines from Tesco
Hot news you won’t want to miss about the best champagne deal in the UK today, plus some excellent value-for-money festive wine tips from expert Laura Jewell.
Now let me get right to the point, I don’t pop my cork for every wine deal I see, so hey moderate spender….spend a lot less on wine and champagne with me. With apologies to Dame Shirley, of course.
**Amazing £8 champagne deal today**
From the small hours of this morning, Tesco will be selling Louis Delaunay Brut non vintage champagne for just £8. Best deal I’ve seen in ages, so don’t miss out if you’re stocking up in advance of the party season. It’s a champagne that gets good reviews, is a classic mix of grape varieties, and has a crisp, lemony flavour with biscuity notes. Bargain!
Expert wine tips for the festive season
Laura Jewell is one of only 319 Master of Wines in the whole world, and has been heading up the wine product development team at Tesco since 2010. Here are some of her best tips to get the best value for money out of your drinks budget.
- If you have a little extra to spend above the basics, consider buying your wine from supermarket premium ranges. Lots of extra effort is made on these selections, and there are some amazing bargains to be had, especially around the £7.99 price point.
- Laura tends to keep vintage champagne for drinking on its own, and uses sparkling wines and non-vintage champagnes for making cocktails.
- Catering for lots of drinkers but don’t have much to spend? Make a big panful of mulled wine. You can buy it ready made from £3.99 per bottle, or you can make it yourself using a 3L wine box of easy-drinking red.
- If you’re only drinking the occasional small glass of decent wine here and there, and don’t want it to go off and be wasted, look out for the newer premium 1.5 litre wine boxes. The quality has definitely greatly improved recently, and once opened the wine lasts for a good six weeks.
- You can still find good wines for under £5. Examples include Simply Riesling (£4.79), Red Simply Garnacha (£4.79), and Tesco Cava (£4.99).
Full disclosure: this is not a paid-for post of any sort. Just thought you’d like to hear about some of the deals.
Good deal on the champagne, but it doesn’t seem to be working for me right now! It says:
“You have qualified for Better Than Half Price Was £25.99 Now £8.00”
in my basket, but when it comes to checkout, its still £25.99 a bottle. Any ideas?
Also, I did my weekly shop at Aldi last week, and they have a very similar range of wines for under £4. I have only tried a couple of the reds, but they are not half bad!!
Hi Graham, I’ve heard that the offer is definitely live. People have been buying for £8 in stores, and it should go to £8.00 per bottle at the checkout stage online. Hope that helps.
