The big UK supermarket chains all offer their own proseccos - though some are tastier than others.
A good prosecco will be fizzy, light in the mouth, sweet - but not cloying - and will often have subtle fruity or citrus flavours.
These are the big supermarket proseccos ranked from worst to best - so you can have the best budget fizz on your Christmas table this year.
This was the best prosecco offer of all the big supermarkets: sweet but not too cloying, this light-in-colour wine has light, spritzy bubbles and fresh, zesty notes.
It’s smooth, easy to drink and would be perfect as an aperitif for your (virtual) Christmas parties. 4.5/5
This is an easy-to-drink glass with spritzy bubbles that don’t overpower the palette.
It’s light and subtly sweet without being overly sugary - though the downfall here is that there’s a slight lack of complex flavour; the fruity notes are perhaps too subtle here.
Would make an ideal aperitif or base for a Christmas day bellini - just add peach juice! 4/5
Striking a good balance between sweet and dry - though leaning further towards dry - this prosecco is fairly light in the mouth and bubbly, though does leave a slight aftertaste that bumps it down the scale.
This a glass that would pair well with Chinese food or baked seabass. 3.5/5
This a crisp glass with pleasant, fleeting bubbles that don’t linger too long on the palette.
It would be a good prosecco for first-timers to the wine, though the apple notes in this glass threaten to overpower the overall taste, with a noticeable aroma before even tasting. 3.5/5
This extra dry prosecco is a good bargain - and the bottle gives away no clues that it comes from a budget supermarket.
It’s less fizzy than the other supermarket offerings, and subtly sweet; its “extra dry” label is perhaps slightly misleading for non wine buffs.
It’s a glass with a fairly neutral flavour, though there are subtle fruity notes apparent here. 3.5/5
For an ‘upmarket’ supermarket prosecco, M&S’s offering was slightly disappointing, with zesty notes leaving an almost acidic aftertaste in the mouth.
In spite of this, and of very lively bubbles, however, this remained a relatively smooth glass which would compliment party food or work well as an aperitif. 3/5
The experience of this glass didn’t quite match the others; it was overly sweet and cloying, with peach notes making for a somewhat sickly taste overall.
This is a prosecco that would be better paired with a dessert, and would be harder to drink alone as an aperitif. 2/5
