I tried 10 Proseccos under €10, and here's what to stock up on for your NYE party

Prosecco, or the gist, is cheap if you want it to be.

I DRINK PROSECCO a lot, even when there’s nothing to celebrate. 

To me, Prosecco is not just a way of being scabby with champagne, it’s a way of life. All of these Prosecco are under €10 and would give the most delicious of expensive Prosecco a run for their money. 

Aldi’s Belletti Prosecco Frizzante DOC – €7.99

At just €7.99, this is a really fruit crisp Prosecco that goes gloriously with pizza when you’re hungover and being forced out for a second night in a row. Another bonus point is that it’s a screw top, and therefore you save yourself the dramatics of the big cork pop. A saviour. It’s got just the right amount of fizz, enough to keep you going without feeling flat or leaving you bloated. 

Lidl Prosecco Spumante Conegliano Valdo - €9

This is a good Prosecco for an occasion. An occasion that’s not a special occasion, but deserves more than a Blossom Hill rosé. Listen, it’s grand, but a bit meh. If I were you I’d look elsewhere on the list before you start hauling boxes, unless you just want the dramatic pop and a few flutes people will leave half full on a sidetable.

Centra’s Marcella Prosecco Doc - €10

You can get this in Dunnes, Centra etc. It’s a very fruity Prosecco and carbonated to bits. It’s definitely an option if you’re promising people bubbles, and want to literally deliver the bubbles. It’s very sweet though, so be warned if that’s not your thing. 

I Heart Prosecco - €8

I’m not really sure what I was expecting from a Prosecco named I Heart Prosecco, but look. Here we are. It’s not great. For a tenner, there are much better Proseccos on this list. It’s very flat and sweet and I didn’t heart it. If you still want to try it, Tesco are currently selling it for eight quid in a promotion. 

Grifon Prosecco Frizzante - €9

You can get this in Supervalu, Centra etc. If you’re having a load of guests over and want to serve them something kinda fancy but completely inoffensive, this is your only option. Throw in a strawberry or two to completely blow their minds. It’s Prosecco without any of the major differentials.   

Graham Norton’s Own Prosecco - €10

You’ll have to hurry if you want this one under a tenner, as it’s on sale in Supervalu at the moment but probably won’t be for long. 

This was the final Prosecco I sampled, sipping it alongside my Christmas breakfast. It was a firm winner, but it’s deffo more brunch Prosecco than mass NYE celebration Prosecco. Maybe an option for New Year’s Day morning. Hair of the dog and all that. 

It’s extremely light and not too bubbly, if you can’t really stand carbonation. 

La Fornarina - €10

Nothing about this screams glamour. Not the bottle, not the contents, and certainly not the price. However, something it is, that a lot of other cheap Prosecco lack, is that it’s extremely reliable and drinkable. You could do a lot worse for your tenner than this frizzante. I’d buy this to have alongside some fruity nibbles, or just y’know, for a Tuesday night. Think of biting a fresh, juicy, tangy apple. That’s pretty much the gist of it. 

McGuigan Frizzante - €10

This has been pushed out by Supervalu in the lead up to Christmas, for whatever reason, so I decided to give it a go. At a tenner, you can’t go wrong. 

I’m not sure if it can technically be classed as a Prosecco, but it has the full frizzante affect and is extremely dry if you’re not a fan of sickly sweet Prosecco. I’d say it’s more of a lightly sparkling wine than fun bubbles you can dish out at NYE parties. This is also a sale price too, so get it quick if you want to save a fiver. 

Mito Frizzante - €8.95

Again, this isn’t a proper Prosecco, but will give you the general idea. O’Briens currently have this on sale for just under nine quid. I haven’t sampled this in a long time, because the last time I did, I wasn’t too impressed. Maybe avoid and splash out on a few of their other, 10-20 range Prosecco for much better value. 

Borgo da Sassi Prosecco - €10.95

Look, I’m rounding this down because Molloys are doing a two for 20 offer right now. It certainly doesn’t look it, but the bubbles inside are another level of frothy and really feel way more luxurious than the price tag would have you believe. It went flat quite quickly, but it has just the right combo of sweet and dry flavours. Get a few bottles of this for your party if you can get your hands on it.
