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.

    Snoothrank:

    Perfect little non-vintage Prosecco. Full of green apple and under-ripe peach with scents of honey and honeysuckle flower. Medium to soft acidity, but an overall great sipper. Had it with fresh oysters. At the price point, cannot be better. Read More

A wine you can pull out for any occasion at a fraction of the price of the mi... Read More
