FANCY popping some bubbly this New Year’s Eve but don’t want to spend a small fortune?
The good news is that there are loads of deals on fancy fizz this time of year, with supermarkets battling for our custom.
But keeping track of the cheapest prices can be tricky, so we’ve rounded up all the most wallet-friendly bottles for you.
We’ve checked the price of Champagne (branded and non-branded), prosecco, cava and fizz alternatives in all major supermarkets in the UK to find out where you’ll get the most bubbly for your pounds.
Usually discount supermarkets like Aldi and Lidl come top in price comparisons, but around Christmas and New Year’s Eve supermarkets start battling for shoppers by dropping prices.
Supermarkets change their prices a lot – sometimes daily! – so it’s worth checking before you head to the shops.
We’ve just compared prices here, so it might worth reading up reviews on quality and taste before you buy.
Here are the best deals on bubbly currently around.
The best value branded champagnes
We scoured the supermarkets to find the lowest price right now:

The cheapest cava
Cava is like dry champagne but it can’t be called it because it’s not made in the region of France bearing its name.
Again, Aldi and Lidl win on price with their bottles costing just £5.29 each.

The Italian version of fizzy wine is known for being sweeter than cava and champagne.

The best sparkling wine alternatives
If you love the taste of fancy fizz but hate the big price tags then it might be worth trying a bottle of cremant.
It’s made in exactly the same way as champagne but it’s not from the same region in France, meaning it can’t use the name.
Alternatively, English sparkling wine has jumped in popularity this year.
We’ve rounded up the best value bottles below:
- Lidl’s Cremant De Loire – £7.99 – available only in-store
- Aldi’s Exquisite Cremant Du Jura – £7.99 – buy now
- Asda’s Cremant De Loire Brut – £8 – buy now
- Tesco’s Calvet Cremant De Bordeaux Brut – £8 – buy now
- Iceland’s Maison De La Rougerie Cremant De Bordeaux – £8.75 – buy now
- Lidl’s Broadwood’s Folly English Sparkling Wine – £14.99 – available only in-store
- Sainsbury’s Ellercombe English Quality Sparkling Wine – £18 – buy now
If that’s not enough, then Sun Selects has rounded up where to buy the best prosecco.
While Morrisons’ £10 prosecco was recently named the best in a blind taste test by Good Housekeeping magazine.
Earlier this year, we warned that alcohol prices in supermarkets could rise to help save pubs.
