Award winning Christmas supermarket champagne, prosecco & other sparkling wines

Best value award winning supermarket champagne and prosecco 2020

It seems a bit odd to suggest we should toast the end of Hell Year 2020 with some beautiful champagne or prosecco, but then again it might help to wash away some of the terrible taste and replace it with something altogether more delicious. On balance, I think it’s probably time for some bubbles, and I’ve tracked down a few excellent award winning drinks for you to try.

Top rated champagnes and other sparkling wines usually sell out at lightning speed when they’re at bargain prices, but these beauties are still in stock at time of publication (but don’t leave it too long if you see something you like).

Prosecco & other sparkling wine

If you like champagne but your budget doesn’t stretch to the cheapest one, you might like to pick up a nice French crémant instead – it’s made pretty much in the same way, just in a different part of the country, with similar flavours. There’s also some excellent prosecco around for 2020 if you prefer this style of wine, or an English sparkler if you want to push the boat out.
