Name of varietal: Prosecco

Common synonyms: Glera
Parentage of the grape: thought to have been first grown in Friuli, then brought to the Veneto region of Italy where it became most popular. 
History of the grape: References to a lightly sparkling wine in the Veneto date back to the 1100s, but it was much sweeter than the popular styles today. The reason for this is that the grape reaches full ripeness relatively late in the harvest season. The grapes would be crushed and set to ferment. However cold temperatures that couldn’t be controlled meant the wine would be bottled often before complete fermentation, which means residual sugar that didn’t get a chance to be converted to alcohol is still in the wine. Come spring, carbon dioxide gets trapped in the bottle, and the wine gets fizzy. The Carpene Malvoti winery under the direction of Antonio Carpene is credited with changing that method in 1868. He employed the French Charmat method to give the wine a secondary Read more »

  • Prosecco is one of the best toasting wines. It's light, sparkling and low in alcohol. It's a crowd pleaser. Perfect for New Year's. Pairs well with light buttery christmas cookies, Italian biscotti or a triple cream brie. Yummy.

  • I love Prosecco. I think it's better than inexpensive champagne and I don't get such a sugar buzz from it.
