Whether you celebrate at home, down your local or go for a big night out on the town, you’ll almost certainly want to welcome in the New Year with a glass of fizz. Lifting a glass of Champagne in a toast to a happy new year is a tradition that dates back to France in the 5th Century.
Yet, with so many varieties of sparkling wine available, why stick to Champagne?! As we turn our back on 2021, we have compiled this list of fabulous bottles of lower calorie fizz to help you 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 nice 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.
Both Skinny Witch Prosecco and Skinny Witch Rose Prosecco are available to purchase from the DrinkWell website for £16.99 per bottle.
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.
SlimLine Wine Sparkling Rose
SlimLine Wine is made for the way we want to live today, healthier, happier but without compromise on quality, flavour or strength.

The result is sparkling rosé that is sure to be a hit at your New Year party, with a strong depth of character, and fresh, pure tasting notes. In every bottle you find the passions that the exceptional SlimLine Winemakers have dedicated to the cultivation of their grapes.
SlimLine Wine Sparkling Rose has a light refreshing flavour with a subtle nose of tropical berries, and a refreshing crisp endnote soothes the palate after each sip.

It is also suitable for vegans and gluten free. Impress your friends this New Year and get yourself some SlimLine Wine Sparkling Rose in, available for £13.99 per bottle from the DrinkWell website.
Skinny Prosecco 1754
As a fizz fan, you may well have already tried and loved the best selling Prosecco 1754. Well, now a lighter version is available! Skinny Prosecco 1754 contains up to 60% less sugar than the standard bottle of Prosecco 1754. That equates to just 0.25g of sugar per 125ml glass, accompanied by only 85 calories. It is also suitable for vegans and gluten free, and it certainly does not compromise on flavour or fizz!
The winery where Skinny Prosecco 1754 is produced is over 400 years old and Skinny Prosecco believe that this adds that extra factor of class to their products. We have to agree with them on that one - Skinny Prosecco 1754 is an exquisite, elegant and beautifully crafted product made from 100% Glera grape from the Veneto region of Northern Italy.
As if Skinny Prosecco 1754 isn’t impressive enough, DrinkWell are super excited to announce the arrival of Skinny Prosecco Rose! Combining 85% Glera grape with Pinot Noir
grapes, this pink prosecco is perfect for celebrating that extra celebration - and New Year’s Eve definitely counts as one of those! This rose version contains slightly more calories than the original Skinny Prosecco (92.5 calories per 125ml), but we think it’s a small sacrifice to make for the added fun of pink fizz! However, like the original, it is still suitable for vegans and gluten free.
You can order a bottle of both varieties from the DrinkWell website for £14.99.
ThinK Prosecco Organic & Vegan
If you are looking for a prosecco to suit everyone’s dietary requirements this New Year, ThinK Prosecco Organic & Vegan is your answer. Being organic, vegan friendly, 100% gluten free and utterly delicious, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who will say no to a glass of ThinK Prosecco. That’s not to mention the fact it's completely sugar free and lower in calories when compared to standard prosecco, with just 77 calories per 125ml.
Best of all, it also tastes amazing and brings a real touch of luxury to the table. Expect flavours that are fresh, aromatic and elegant, with light notes of bread crust and green apple.
The ThinK team have also developed a pink fizz for those of us who like things a bit more jazzy - the ThinK Pink Sparkling Organic & Vegan is a delicious Pinot Grigio Sparkling Rose. Its refined bouquet is characterised by delicate hints of strawberry, gooseberries and pink grapefruit. The palate is fresh and delicate with a soft mousse.
It’s not often we find a product as perfect as this one - which is a big claim coming from people who dedicate their lives to finding high quality alcohol. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think when you order a bottle (or 2!) from the DrinkWell website for £16.99.
