The Story

Prosecco is a famous, fun and fruity, lightly sparkling white wine produced in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Much like how Champagne France’s cherished sparkling wine, Prosecco is Italy’s.

The Prosecco DOC zone, located in Veneto (more specifically Friuli-Venezia Giulia), is where this admired sparkling wine is produced. In 2009, the Prosecco grape was officially renamed “Glera” to distinguish the geographical Prosecco DOC zone from the actual grape and elevate the region in the same way that Champagne enjoyed prominence as a place of heralded bubbly.

Prosecco is made in the Charmat Method (also known as the “Tank Method” and to Italians as “Metodo Italiano”), a process by which the secondary fermentation (which produces the carbonation) occurs in large stainless-steel tanks. In Champagne, the secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle, known as méthode Champenoise.

And unlike Champagne, where a few varieties are permitted in Champagne’s production, Prosecco only allows one variety: Glera. This means that every Prosecco bottle will be a white wine, unlike the diversity of Champagne’s red and white wines.

Tasting Notes

There's a beautiful yellow colour with golden reflections. The nose is freshly citrus driven with notes of apple and pear. Flavours of green apple, honeydew melon, pear, and honeysuckle. It is well balanced wine with elegant bubbles.
