Did you know? We won 140 medals for our Wine Selection and Extra Special wines!
After a rigorous blind tasting by the world’s leading wine judges, Asda’s own-label wines scooped up 140 medals at the world’s three most prestigious wine competitions – International Wine & Spirit Competition, Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge.
The star of the show was our Extra Special Louis Bernard Premier Cru Champagne £19.75. It beat big brands and bubbly costing up to £135 to win a Gold Award and Great Value Award.
Asda’s wine expert and Master of Wine, Philippa Carr, says “If you’re planning something special – a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, a birth (yes, Mr and Mrs Wales) here’s a Gold medal winning Champagne that would be just perfect – fine, floral, fruity and extraordinarily classy!”
Here’s some more top summer picks from Philippa:
“Nothing beats the smell of sausages on the barbie and my wine choice would be a robustly rich and fruity Wine Selection Syrah £4.00. It beat other reds costing up to ten times the price to win a Silver Outstanding Medal.”
“For summer salads share a crisp and creamy bottle of our double Silver medallist Wine Selection French Chardonnay £4.50. One swallow doesn’t make a summer… but a sip or two just might."
“It’s strawberry season right now so treat yourself to a bowl of juicy fruit and match it with our Silver Medal winning Wine Selection Asti £5.25. It’s a fantastically moreish, sweet sparkler that will get your mouth bursting with bubbles!”
