The benefits of drinking prosecco have officially been proven. In toast of this, Wriggle decided to delve into the bottom of the bottle, uncover what makes it so special, and point you to where to head for it. Pop open a bottle this weekend...

This is probably the best news we've had in a while. In the midst of economic meltdown, the reign of tyrannous political figures, and the loss of so many talented musicians this year, it seems there has been little to celebrate in 2016. 

Today, we woke to the welcome news that prosecco has a - pretty long - list of proven health benefits. This delicious, dry wine promises a night of silly conversation, slurry dancing, and some of the best photos of your friends. Now you can relish in the knowledge that you'll be lowering your blood pressure, lifting your mood, improving your sex drive, and guarding against colds with every gulp of the stuff. 

We now welcome back fizz Fridays without shame! So read on for the best places to head to this evening and work on your bubble consumption. Check out our Bristol Bottomless Brunch post if you're in the city this weekend.
