Your bank holiday is about to get a whole lot better! Aldi has brought back its magnums of prosecco just in time for the four-day weekend, and they're a steal at £12.99 a bottle. The budget supermarket is selling the bargain bottles of fizz, which are the equivalent to two regular bottles, online and in-stores now, and they're proving incredibly popular among shoppers.

The prosecco on offer is described as a 2017 vintage Treviso, with "aromas of sherbet, lemon and lime giving way to freshly picked grapefruit". Meanwhile the 1.5 litre bottle makes it ideal for sharing among friends and family over the Easter weekend.

Aldi has become known for its impressive offers on wine, beers and spirits, and excited customers by releasing a jeroboam of prosecco for £39.99 a bottle in the lead up to Christmas. It has also recently added another new tipple to its collection; its own version of the Italian aperitif Aperol called Aperini, which costs half the price of the original.

However, Aldi is not the only supermarket to introduce magnums of prosecco into stores ahead of the Easter break; Tesco is currently selling a 1.5 litre bottle of Plaza Centro Brut Prosecco at a slightly more expensive price of £15, with the fizz included in its offer for 25% off when you buy six or more bottles of wine or champagne.

Sainsburys also has a similar offer on its own wine and champagne until Monday 2 April, which means that shoppers can pick up a magnum of Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco, usually worth £21, for £15.75 a bottle.

It's no wonder so many supermarkets are offering budget bottles of fizz - Brits are the biggest fans of prosecco in the world, and a recent report from The Consortium for the Protection of Prosecco revealed that out of the 410.9 million bottles of prosecco produced in 2016, one third came straight to the UK – equating to roughly 135,597,000 bottles!
