DIET Prosecco to go on sale next year for fizz fans worried about sugar intake


If you’re a fan of prosecco (and let’s face it, who isn’t), but you’re worried about you’re waistline then you’ll be excited to hear that a diet version is set to go mainstream next year.

Skinny Prosecco is already available to buy but you can only pick it up if you are mooching around Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, or eating out in Zizzi’s.

However, from spring 2017, the diet version of the middle class fave is set to be available in standard supermarkets - meaning no more trips up town to grab a bottle or three.

The drink is basically your standard prosecco, only with around 7g of sugar per litre - which is about half of your regular version.

Costing a not-cheap £17.99, the diet fizz is already in high demand after it was launched in April, becoming the best-selling wine on the Selfridge’s website.

In fact, it it so popular that a waiting list was set up as demand outstripped supply pretty quickly.

The woman behind the low-sugar prosecco, Amanda Thomson, said of her genius idea: “We laughed when we were called the ‘basic bitch drink of the summer’ in the media but demand has been off the scale.

“It said something quite significant about the gap we’d discovered in the wine market.”
