Champagne has long been considered as a 'celebration drink' and is the most commonly used tipple when making a toast. But if budget or preference rules out champagne, don't worry, there are plenty of alternatives! Nowadays, sparkling wine is poured during celebrations just as much as champers. So, as we turn our back on 2023, we have compiled this list of the best sparkling wine to make it an extra special celebration.
Skinny Witch Prosecco
Witch by name, but definitely not Witch by nature - this one is very much on our best sparkling wine list. Skinny Witch is created by Skull X, a new, award-winning, family-run alcoholic beverage company whose mission is quite simply to create the best drink available. To make Skinny Witch as low sugar as possible, it is made in Italy using the best, most flavourful grapes from Conegliano, removing the need for any additional sugars.
What we most admire about Skinny Witch Prosecco is how they have managed to achieve a perfect balance of flavours with no added sugars, offering a guilt-free yet flavourful experience. And we aren’t the only ones who are impressed - the makers have received awards in recognition of the brilliance of this prosecco!
Aside from containing 0g of sugar, the most impressive thing about Skinny Witch Prosecco is how exceptionally low in calories it is, with just 69 calories per 125ml. It is also gluten free and has an ABV of 11.5%.
If you fancy something a little different to help you see the new year in, Skinny Witch also comes in a rose version, which comes very highly recommended by ourselves!
This beautiful, balanced low-sugar alternative creates the perfect balance between the elegant flavours that come through from the rosé and the balanced palate brought forward by the prosecco.The rose Skinny Witch contains 78 calories per 125ml and 0g of sugar. This deep, well-rounded wine is sure to set your 2022 off on the right track.
La Gioiosa Prosecco
La Gioiosa is one of Italy’s leading prosecco producers, and this lower calorie option perfectly demonstrates their skill, knowledge and expertise in the world of wine making. Based in Treviso in the heart of Veneto (aka prosecco country!), La Gioiosa have created a low calorie, low carb prosecco that is full of character and delicate on the palate - 100% guilt-free.
La Gioiosa is a fine, dry prosecco with a hint of lemon and a surprising note of almond on the finish. With a fruity and floral aroma, and hints of ripe golden apple, the harmonious aftertaste is what distinguishes it, making this type of prosecco ideal to drink on its own or to pair with a meal - so whatever your plans are this New Year, La Gioiosa will fit right in!
The yellow pale appearance makes this wine seamless and refreshing whilst also being low in calories (79 per 125ml) and vegan-friendly. It is also gluten free and contains 0g of sugar, meaning it can also fit into a keto diet. This one really is the perfect tipple for everyone this New Year’s Eve, so order yourself a bottle from the DrinkWell website for £13.99 today.
