The Huffington Post Names Noughty Alcohol-Free in Top 3 Sparkling Wines

Valentine's day is often marked as a “special” day. Perhaps a romantic date with delicious food and a little wine on the side is a perfect way to cherish the day. But according to The Huffington Post, there is often a shortage of sparkling wine during Valentine's Week. Paul Higgins, director of sparkling direct, says champagne houses have limited reserves of Rose, Chardonnay, and Brut. He also mentions this situation is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. 

In addition, during Christmas and New Year, champagne is often in short supply, according to a report published in August 2021. Shipment shortages totaled 18% or 50 million bottles. Seeing such a shortage on Valentine's Day is a first. The director and lead buyer at  VIP Bottles, Harvey Uppal, says the shortage of champagne was about to worsen due to the increase in online sales. The online retail business saw a 50% increase in demand during the peak of the pandemic. As a result of lockdown restrictions and a disrupted supply chain, the UK is experiencing shortages. 

Uppal says, “Champagne will certainly still be available, but the main impact is we are going to see price rises to fit the demand/supply issue.” The Huffing post has curated a list of the top 3 champagnes that are perfect to pop on valentines day.
