From midweek winners to left-field discoveries, we’re celebrating the brilliant (and bargain!) bottles you can find only in the supermarkets

Looking for the best supermarket wine? Want to know which wine to buy? Read on for the best bottles, from English sparkling wine to Greek wine…


We're thrilled to announce the results of the olive wine awards 2021. The olive team chose 23 categories for own-brand and retailer-exclusive supermarket wines, covering different grape varietals, styles and price points. The supermarkets were invited to enter one wine per category (so they had to choose carefully). Every wine was blind-tasted by a panel of olive judges (led by olive wine columnist, drinks author and sommelier Kate Hawkings) and we awarded gold, silver and bronze winners. In some categories, where the standard was high, we awarded joint winners. So if you see those labels on your next shop – trust in us. These bottles are brilliant!
