Sparkling wines mean celebrations. So, wouldn’t it be great if joining in the celebrations didn’t mean the non-drinkers raising a glass of orange juice while everybody else has champagne?

This wine may be the answer. According to Helen McGinn of the Knackered Mother’s Wine Club, it’s a “game changer”. It looks good. It’s nicely packaged, with a proper cork, and looks like something you’d buy for a special occasion. Once poured, it’s got a great colour and plenty of bubbles. And unlike many alcohol-free wines, it’s not too sweet.

No, it’s not the best sparkling white in the world, but we’ve had much worse full-strength fizz at weddings and christenings over the years. The days of raising a glass of orange juice to the happy couple may be at an end.
