Lidl is selling Rosé Prosecco and it's a snip at just £6.49

Lidl is the first UK supermarket retailer to sell pink Prosecco - after a recent Italian law change meant the Pinot Noir grapes can now be used to make the sparkling wine with a hint of pink.

If you've already stocked up on your 24 gins of Christmas advent calendar, you might want to add this to your shopping list.

Customers will be hunting down the bottles of pink Rosé Prosecco after they went on sale in stores nationwide from 2nd November.

Priced at just £6.49, Lidl's Rosé Prosecco has tasting notes of fruity strawberry with an attractive pale pink finish. It is described as being not too dry with a gentle fizz - perfect for those who enjoy the taste of a classic Prosecco but want to try something new.

Paul McQuade, Head of Wine Buying at Lidl GB said, "We are really excited to be the first UK retailer to sell Pink Prosecco to customers, and know that it is a hotly anticipated product for the festive season.

“Our award-winning Prosecco range is very popular with customers up and down the country so we are pleased to be able to bring them a UK retailer first, at a fantastic price to boot.”

And shoppers are already going wild for the fizz. One wrote, "One for us to try ladies" a second customer put, "Look at the price of this ! bargain !" and another added, "Need to go to Lidl tomorrow."

Meanwhile a fourth shopper added, "This is essential right?" after many shops are set to only sell essential items amid lockdown 2.0 in the UK which is set to be imposed this week.

While many will be rushing to buy beauty products which will help lockdown wrinkles, many will be stocking up on the alcohol ahead of the festive season.

Make sure you add it to your shopping list, you wouldn't want to forget what your went to the supermarket for...
