The 6 bargain booze deals you need to know about
Cooler days and darker nights often make us crave a tipple come the end of a long day.
To avoid damaging your bank balance, stock up on the bargains currently available from our favourite supermarkets and head home to a warming drop of happiness.
1. Host your own Oktoberfest with uber-cheap beer
Lidl has launched five new German drinks ahead of the Oktoberfest celebrations. You might want to leave the 59p shandy in the beer aisle, but 99p for a wheat beer? Yes please.
2. Stock up on Aldi's Prosecco
Everyone's talking about Aldi's enormous new bottle of DOCG Prosecco - available in stores from November 14. Three litres of bubbly stuff (that's a jeroboam for those who like to sound fancy) should keep the party going, as it's the equivalent of six regular-sized bottles, for Â£39.99. That's New Year's Eve sorted.
3. Snap up a bargain pinot grigio
Fancy a five-star pinot for just over a fiver? Of course you do. La Veduta Pinot Grigio DOC is beautifully rounded with notes of apple and pear, and is available for Â£5.99 (reduced from Â£8.99) from Waitrose, until October 3.
4. Multibuy your beers at Asda
Asda have ramped up their beer offerings of late and you can now find a host of craft ales, lagers and ciders in their alcohol aisles. Even better, loads of them are on offer, so you can buy four bottles for Â£6. Cheers to that.
5. Glug a red with 1/3 off
So many decent bottles of red seem to cost a tenner now. But this San Antolin Reserva has had its price slashed to Â£6.66 at Waitrose, which means you can buy two.
6. Celebrate with half-price bubbles
You can always count on M&S for quality booze offerings, so their half-price Louis Vertay Brut (Â£34 reduced to Â£17 until October 2) is not to be missed. But if you do, you can snap up the Abel Charlot Brut (Â£34 reduced to Â£17) from October 3-30, instead.
