Bubbly lovers from the United Kingdom have a lot to celebrate, as the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s is selling Prosecco Frizzante for the sum of £1.50. That’s almost $2, but there is a catch: they cost £1.50 per bottle if you get 6 which brings the total cost to £9 or roughly $11.50.
Prosecco is an Italian white wine which can be classified as spumante (“sparkling wine”), frizzante (“semi-sparkling wine”), or tranquillo (“still wine”). It is made from Glera grapes which are also known as ‘prosecco’ and its name is derived from that of the village of Prosecco near Trieste in Northeastern Italy, where the grape and wine originated from.
A UK website called Money Saving Expert is giving this advice on saving 25% on buying 6 or more bottles, and you can not only buy Prosecco, but you can also get champagne and wine.
This promotion at the second largest supermarket chain in the UK will last until Tuesday, the 29th of August 2017, and involves deals on Prosecco, wine or Champagne:
Six bottles of Sainsbury’s Prosecco Frizzante for £27 (£4.50/bottle)
Six bottles of Valdo Prosecco Marca Oro for £33.75 (£5.63/bottle)
Six bottles of Antoine De Clevecy Champagne for £65.25 (£10.88/bottle)
Delivery is between £1 and £6, but it is free if you collect your order at the store.
A great alternative to Champagne, the Italian bubbly is also the main ingredient of a cocktail called ‘spritz’ which is popular throughout Europe. The cocktail, whose name comes from the German words for splashing and sparkling also involves a dash of liqueur and mineral water and is especially popular as an aperitif in Northern Italy and Southern Germany.
The popular British media channel Unilad also raise attention to other bargains in supermarkets across the UK: on the 26th and 27th August, thrifty shoppers will be able to pick up a six pack of Allini Prosecco for just £20 from Lidl (£3.33 per bottle).
Hailed by the supermarket chain as the “bargain of the century”, lovers of sparkling wine will be saving £11.50 off the usual retail price, with single bottles normally being priced at £5.97.
If you are more into stronger liquor, however, check out Aldi’s house brand of gin, which retails at $13 which has recently won a gold medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
