Budget supermarket wines

These own-label wines just won awards, and they all cost under £17. 

As studies continue to suggest that we’re increasingly opting to stay in over going out, the idea of catching up with a friend on the sofa while watching a Netflix film is more appealing than ever. 

Saying no to rowdy crowds, overpriced cocktails and waiting around for night buses just feels so good. 

It’s also a lot cheaper, which we all know is at the forefront of our minds during these tight times.

So it’s good to know that, if we do want to enjoy a cheeky tipple while discussing the latest episode of Love Island, we can keep a decent bottle of wine in the fridge without breaking the bank.

And news of these award-winning budget and mid-price supermarket wines prove it.
