One of the nicest Prosecco out there in my opinion, so I just had to share this fantastic deal that's running in Waitrose at the moment. This beauty is £10.99 for the 75cl bottle, or on a special offer of 2 for £15!

This week I have been lucky enough to sample the Mionetto MO Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superior DOCG. The Mionetto MO collection embodies elegance, made in the DOCG zone, this Prosecco oozes quality. The bottle is incredibly elegant and stylish, with the MO logo raised on the front from the glass, and a swing tag giving a description of the Prosecco, how to serve and details of its taste, (in Italian, those lessons are paying off).
I really like the Mionetto range anyway, and the Orange label bottle is my go to bottle if I see it in store, so I was really looking forward to trying the premium range from them. I can honestly say I was not disappointed. As you can imagine, I have tried ALOT of Prosecco, some poor, some average, most nice, and a handful truly delicious. I would put this one up there with the truly delicious, as it is crisp, fresh, delicate, and reminds me of the spring (much needed here at the moment)! A beautiful straw yellow colour, with a floral, apple like fragrance, this is so easy to drink. The bubbles seemed smaller and more delicate, although no less fizzy in this Prosecco, which adds to the premium and elegant feel. I tried this first, whilst cooking, then with my evening meal, which was pasta and pesto, and it complimented it perfectly. It was lovely on it's own, and worked so well with the food too. The sleek design really is a selling point for me, as this would be a fabulous gift to give or receive. I would say this is a step up from your standard everyday Prosecco, and definitely worth trying.
I also just wanted to add - I expect you are thinking, oh this is a sponsored post, she is not going to say it's not very nice etc, but any Prosecco I am sent to sample and I don't like, I don't write the review. Simple. I'm not going to be negative about a product as everyone's taste is individual, but I will only review things I genuinely believe in, and I like this!
You can currently buy this Prosecco from Majestic Wines here, on offer at £10.99 from £14.99!
.....and the glass is available here
The Prosecco craze is continuing, this time with pasta. Batchelors have released this limited edition Prosecco and Mushroom flavour Pasta 'n' Sauce. Social Media comments so far are very positive, with many saying Pasta and Prosecco - their two favourite things rolled into one! I've not tried it yet, but you can get it in Asda for 75p!
It's that time of year, Dry January has ended, struggling with diets, rubbish weather.... the list goes on! Well with the launch of Petite Prosecco, a new low sugar Prosecco, you can your favourite drink, guilt free!
Petite Prosecco contains just 59 calories per 100ml glass (less calories than an apple) and just 6 grams of residual sugar. Which is great considering the average glass of Prosecco contains 80 calories.
Lately the only slimming choice when drinking seems to be ‘gin and slim line tonic’, so it's a refreshing change to see another option! The company aim to give Prosecco lovers the same great taste but with less of the calories and sugar content found in a usual, standard bottle.
Petite Prosecco is developed straight from the Italian town Treviso, DOC, home of Prosecco and the best grapes in the business. Petite Prosecco is created with every Prosecco admirer in mind, being the lowest calorie Prosecco on the market. Each 75cl bottle contains an alcohol volume of 10.5%, 7.9 UK units and is completely vegan friendly.
The Petite Prosecco website went live on 2/2/2018, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The website has great offers on when you purchase more than one bottle, so check them out here
Petite Prosecco CEO, Luke Mills, states “We are so excited to be launching this new Prosecco, especially in this day and age where people care a lot more about what they are consuming into their body. It allows us to give Prosecco lovers an option to enjoy themselves whilst drinking without the guilt.”

I am often asked about the calories in Prosecco. It's coming up to the festive period and if, like me, you want to lose a few pounds - you might want to read on, and find out how many calories are in that glass (bottle) of Prosecco!
If you are following a plan, then Weight Watchers Smart Points is 4 points for a 125ml glass and Slimming World is 5 syns for a 125ml glass.
If you are calorie counting then there are 86 calories per 125ml glass, or if you go for one of the reduced sugar varieties, it's around 67 calories per glass.
To give this some perspective, the below is a rough guide on calories in other wines too -
125ml Red Wine - 85
120ml Dry White Wine - 77
I hope this helps a little, and cheers!
Step 1: Find a cheap prosecco at Sainsbury’s.
– Sainsbury’s Prosecco Frizzante – £6
– Sainsbury's Conegliano Prosecco reduced to £7.50
Step 2: Sainsbury’s also has 25% off six bottles.
Buy any six bottles for delivery until 31st Oct, and you’ll automatically get a 25% discount.
That means you can buy:
– 6 bottles of Sainsbury’s Prosecco Frizzante for £27 (£4.50 per bottle)
– 6 bottles of I Heart Prosecco for £33.75 (£5.63 per bottle)
Delivery online is £1-£7 (or free if you collect in a store).
It’s at this point that existing online customers can’t go any further as the code below is for newbies, but the deals above from £4.50 per bottle are still decent.
Step 3: Now for the big trick – if you’re new to Sainsbury’s grocery online, boost the offer further with an £18 off £60 code.
IMPORTANT: You’ll need to buy groceries you’d buy anyway AND have your order delivered/collected before 11pm on Tue 31st Oct for this to work.
Use the code AFFVCOCT18 and you’ll get £18 off when you spend £60* (code expires Wed 8 Nov).
Yet the T&Cs state:
“When using a promotional money-off voucher, the value of the goods other than spirits, liqueurs or wine during a buy 6 save 25% multibuy offer must be at least equal to the money off offered by the promotional voucher.”
In plain speak, it means you’ll need to spend a minimum £60, of which at least £18 needs to be stuff other than booze for it to work.
So how do you get it for £1.50? If you go for the Sainsbury’s Prosecco Frizzante, it’s £27 for 6 bottles, so you’d need to spend £33 on groceries to reach the £60 minimum spend. Then with the £18 off, it’s £42. As you’ve spent £33 on normal groceries, it’s £9 for the six bottles of prosecco, or £1.50 per bottle (plus delivery if you can’t pick up in a store for free).
Step 4: Check your basket to ensure it’s gone as planned.
All these discounts should show up in your basket before you pay – if not, something’s gone wrong.
Step 5: Change your substitution preferences to avoid any surprises.
If you only want the cheapest prosecco, make sure you untick the box which says ‘allow substitutions’ when you order, as that way if it’s not in stock, you’ll just get your groceries, not a pricier bottle of booze, which has happened to some in the past when using this trick.
And when your delivery arrives, make sure you check what you have received with the driver. If you do receive substitutions, you can choose whether you want to accept them or send them back.

This recipe really is the dogs doodah's! I tried this at the weekend, and couldn't wait to share it with you, but I've been too busy stuffing my face with it to write the blog! I got the recipe from the BBC Good Food website, and tweaked it slightly, by taking out some of the nuts suggested, adding some of my favourites and also switching some of the dried fruits. It's great as you can basically add anything you like - I also used crushed dark chocolate biscuits instead of the shortbread too.

I recently got sent this a bottle of Mionetto Extra Dry DOCG to sample and review.
I've tried a couple of their other Prosecco's (which I really liked), so was keen to give this one a go, and the Mionetto Prestige DOC (currently available and on offer in Tesco) is delicious!
This Prosecco has a beautiful straw yellow colour, and smells like the spring, reminding me of apples and blossom. The flavour is light, fruity, almost pear like, and I have to say, very easy to drink. This is a Prosecco I would happily drink by itself to really savour the flavours, but it would work well with chicken or fish dishes too.
I have to say that Mionetto Prosecco's are becoming one of my favourites.
A triple pack has just been launched on Amazon, which includes both the Prestige DOC Brut and DOCG Extra Dry.
I love Prosecco! I started sharing the love back in 2012 when I started a Facebook page highlighting weekly deals. The page has grown into this website, and a rather large following of Prosecco Watchers! All press/review requests please email me - email@example.com
