Need to celebrate something? Open the bottle of prosecco...

Prosecco's easy flavour and relatively cheap price tag has meant that we Brits now apparently consume a third of all bottles produced.

The sparkling wine is great value compared to Champagne or Cava, and also has a smaller alcohol and calorie content than its posh cousins.

And now that we've been told the UK's heatwave doesn't show signs of going away until October, there's no better reason than to grab another glass.

We've selected a handful of the greatest bottles you can easily purchase at your local supermarket.

  1. Aldi: Valdobbiadene Prosecco Spumante Superiore DOCG

    Aldi has had plenty of low-priced luxury bottles over the past few years, and this is one of their best.

    It comes in a stylish bottle, and has a perfectly fresh and crisp finish.

  2. Harvey Nichols: Nino Franco Prosecco Rustico

    Founded by Antonio Franco in 1919 and now run by his grandson Primo, Nino Franco is one of Valdobbiadene’s longest-running wineries.

    This Prosecco Rustico is a consistent gold medal winner, and has a soft fruit sweetness and a completely dry finish.

  3. Sainsbury’s: Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco 2015

    This bottle has both a tangy citrus taste and gentle apricot flavours.

    It’s also not too dry and is best served chilled as an Apéritif.

    Perfect dinner party bottle. It's light and palate-cleansing, and has elements of sweet almond.

    We'd recommend this one if you need something refreshing to casually drink throughout an evening.

  6. Asda: Extra Special Prosecco Asolo Brut

    Price: £8 / Buy it now

    Coming from the vineyards of Italy, this bottle of wine has apple flavours and plenty of wild flower aromas.

    It also has a surprisingly lack of fizz, and so is very easy to drink. Asda says you should serve with peach juice for a classic Bellini. 

  7. Lidl: Allini Prosecco Treviso Frizzante

    At such a cheap price, this is a great find.

    This bottle Prosecco has light pear flavours, and is perhaps the choice if you need something soft for cocktail mixers.
