Lidl Northern Ireland Launches Limited Edition Organic Prosecco Ahead of New Year’s Eve

Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC,

Lidl Northern Ireland has launched an Organic Prosecco in time for this year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. The limited edition Prosecco, that is made with organically grown grapes, will be available in Lidl Northern Ireland’s 38 stores for £7.99 from December 27th. Richard Bampfield, Master of Wine said of the Prosecco, “Relatively little Prosecco is made from organically grown grapes, so this is somewhat special and is a particularly expressive example. With bright aromas of pear and white peach, it is not too dry, well balanced and ideal for drinking with friends over the festive period.”

Organic may be on trend, but what does “organic” means when it comes to wine? Lidl helps dispel the top three most common myths.

MYTH 1: “Organic” is More Expensive

Organic may mean less intensive farming practices, but it does require longer periods of work and produce lower yields. However, Lidl’s limited edition Organic Prosecco, priced at an incredible €14.99, shows that organic doesn’t have to break the bank.

MYTH 2: “Organic” Only Applies to Food

Organic isn’t limited to just food. Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC is produced using organically grown grapes. The cellars are cleaned purely with recycled water, and the vineyards are managed without the use of chemical fertiliser, herbicide, pesticides and insecticides.

MYTH 3: Drinking Organic Prosecco Means Compromising on Taste

While some may fear that Organic Prosecco might taste a little more rustic, this is in fact untrue. Due to the less intensive farming practice, the grapes are able to fully express their flavour. Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC, made using native Glera grapes from the Veneto region, is well balanced, not too dry with bright aromas of pear and white peach.

Lidl’s Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC is available in Lidl Northern Ireland from December 27th while stocks last so make sure to get to stores early to avoid disappointment.
