If you are looking to celebrate Christmas with a bit of Italian sparkle, here are our reviews of some of the best and worst supermarket Proseccos on offer for Christmas 2023.

Lidl Prosecco Spumante Valdobbiadene Superiore, £6.99

This is a real festive bargain that'll have guests thinking you've splashed out more than you have.

It has a lovely light colour, isn't too acidic and has champagne-style tiny bubbles.

Eminently drinkable, the only issue is that it goes down a little too easily.

One note of caution is that it's very dry, so those with a taste for the sweeter tipple should approach with caution.


Waitrose Blueprint Prosecco DOC, £7.99

Another dry prosecco, this is a perfectly pleasant drink with a subtle appley aftertaste. The bubbles are big, unlike its overall character - which doesn't have a huge amount going on.

We'd say it's a good choice for making a Christmas cocktail with the addition of some flavoured gin or a dash of brandy.


Tesco Finest Prosecco, £8

A medium sweet that looks great in the glass - with an attractive straw-colour and satisfying bubbles.

We found it worked particularly well with salty snacks, even if it was just a bowl of nuts, to balance out its acidity.

It would be a good option to serve with a starter during a Boxing Day lunch.


Asda Extra Special Prosecco, £7.50

best prosecco

This was a disappointing prosecco that's light on colour - looking like water in the glass.

The bubbles are so big that it feels as subtle as drinking a can of cola.

The taste is initially just bland, but there's a tart and bitter lower end that's disturbingly close to vinegar.

We'd only use this to make a breakfast mimosa.


Sainsbury’s Conegliano Prosecco, £7.50

Part of the Sainsbury's Taste the Difference range, this prosecco is initially sweet on the palate, but not in an unpleasantly sugary way.

This is one that's likely to appeal to all tastes so would be great for a party or larger family gathering.

Marks & Spencer Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOGC, £14

This prosecco is part of the premium 'M&S Collection' range and comes with a premium price that's approaching the cost of a supermarket champagne.

There's little to dislike about the taste, bubbles or colour but it has very little to make it genuinely stand out against the competition - particularly since you can buy two bottles of the Lidl prosecco for the same price.
