'My wife Steph adores Champagne. To celebrate the millennium I bought her a ’64 vintage - the year she was born - and it came as no surprise that it was a good year for Champagne.
But you don’t have to break the bank. From Champagne to Asti, these days there are so many types to choose from to match all budgets.
As you’ll see from my selection here, you can mark a special occasion for under £7. Sometimes a celebration starts with just the pop of a cork, so there’s no excuse not to!'
