Wine of the Month: Skinny Prosecco

Yes, you heard us right – Skinny Prosecco!

We all know that too much sugar is bad for us, so when Scott and Thomson announced they were creating a low sugar Prosecco, we couldn’t wait to give it a try. The results are in and this is no gimmick.

The average bottle of champagne contains between 12 and 32g of sugar per litre. Prosecco contains between 12 and 15g per litre. This Skinny Prosecco has just around 7g. That’s around 67 calories per 100ml glass – less than a large egg!

But there’s more – This a DOC prosecco produced from 100% Glera grapes. It is also Certified Organic and Certified Vegan.

And it’s not just us – the media has been going crazy for Skinny Prosecco – don’t believe us, check out these articles:

Introducing our Wine of The Month: Tosti Prosecco Brut Atelie DOC

Well now that we’ve moved beyond February 29th, March has finally arrived and so has the time to introduce March’s wine of the month!

This month we’re showcasing our Tosti Prosecco Brut Atelie DOC.

Prosecco, the Italian cousin to France’s champagne, has quickly been gaining in popularity in the UK. Last year, sales of prosecco overtook sales of champagne for the first time in Britain. Prosecco has not only a rich history and quality, it is also a highly fashionable and cheaper alternative to champagne.

Our Tosti Prosecco is produced in Canelli, in the province of Asti, Northwest Italy, which is undoubtedly one of the wine capitals of the world and known for its’ sparkling wines. The Tosti Brut Atelie is produced by husband and wife team Maria Cristina and Giovanni Bosca. Seven generations of the Bosca family have been producing wines and sparkling wines at their family estates since 1820.

This prosecco is both refreshing and gentle with aromatic fruity notes. It is crisp and lively with a beautifully clean aftertaste. The perfect accompaniment for cured meats, asparagus and creme brulee.

So whether you’re celebrating St David’s Day, treating a special Mum on Mother’s Day or enjoying an Easter celebration, our Atelie Brut Prosecco is just the thing.

And with 10% off the RRP – it’s ‘eggcellent’ value for money (sorry we couldn’t resist!)
