Even Commoners Can Afford Lidl's New Royal Wedding Wine
Toast to Harry and Meghan with a glass of Broadwood Folly wine from Lidl.
The Royal Wedding is officially two months away, and while we’re still speculating about most of the details for the big event on May 19, retailers in the United Kingdom are already beginning to celebrate the nuptials.
To help royal devotees all over the U.K. raise a glass to the couple, Lidl grocery stores have started selling a premium English wine specifically for the occasion, called Broadwood Folly. At only £7.99 a bottle, it’s truly a wine fit for a king, yet priced for a peasant.
According to Good Housekeeping UK, the wine is from a Surrey, England-based wine producer and tastes dry with a light spritz and green apple flavor. The wine is produced using a blend of Reichensteiner, Muller Thurgau, Bacchus, Ortega and Seyval Blanc grapes.
While England isn’t famous for their winemaking, vineyards in the region are seeing more recognition as the industry expands, growing 16% between 2016 and 2017 alone.
Until May 19, we’ll be busy picking out our finest hats and classiest dresses just in case we snag an invite to this historic event. While that might seem like wishful thinking, we heard that the couple is inviting more than 2,000 members of the public to their wedding, so there’s a chance that we could actually see the ceremony happen live. We’ll cheers to that.
