Stock up for Bank Holiday weekend
Not sure where to start when picking the perfect bottle of vino? Overwhelmed when it comes to the alcohol aisle? Unsure of what you should be pairing with your dinner? Well, you can start to make sense of it all by taking note of which wines come out on top at the world's biggest wine awards.
And this year it's Asda that's taking home a gold star for one of their £5.25 offering which has 'soft, tropical fruit flavours seasoned with a sassy crispness'.
The supermarket was awarded the honour by the Decanter World Wine Awards, the world's largest wine competition, for their bottle of The Wine Atlas Fetească Regală, Romania 2018 which is listed on their website as 'a brilliant match to rice salads, Asian dishes or stir-fries.'
Judges selected their favourites from a selection of 17,000 wines from 57 countries and awards co-chair Michael Hill Smith hopes that the competition will help people pick up the perfect bottle.
'Choosing a bottle with a DWWA sticker on it, particularly a gold or platinum, should reassure them that the wine has been through a rigorous judging process, against much competition and you can trust the quality,' he said.
'With more education on wine so widely available nowadays, and plenty more opportunities to travel, now really is the time to have an interest in wine.'
An award winning bottle of wine for less than £6? We're sold.
