What you need to know!

Prosecco is the most fun you can have on a budget. In fact that’s what makes Prosecco so damn awesome, because it is not nearly as expensive as Champagne. Prosecco is made using a less expensive “tank method” of bringing bubbles to the wine. The process makes for a lighter, more “spritzy” sparkle in the wine. You get flavors of honeysuckle, green apples, pears. And a lot more fruit flavors as opposed to the more old-school, bread like flavors you sometimes find in Chapmpagne. It makes Prosecco a fun sparkling wine to drink anytime, anywhere, when you just want to celebrate the moment. It’s the main reason I always keep a bottle of "just-in-case" Prosecco ready and close by.

Food pairings

Air dried ham like Parma ham, Prosciutto, or Jamon Serrano (yes we know the last one is Spanish!) will melt in your mouth when paired with Prosecco. There is something so simple, yet so elegant about the combination. Or have it with some sushi, we know you have been looking for wine to pair with sushi!

Scouting tips

Keep an eye out for sub regions, who are more focused on making top quality Prosecco. One region we go particularly cray for is Prosecco di Valdobbiadene. Other am zing wines come from Colli Asolani, and Conegliano Valdobbiadene making single vintage Prosecco of superior quality. 

Occasion Pairings

Prosecco turns any occasion into a party, a good time, a wild time. Why is Prosecco a wine that rocks? Because Prosecco is basically Italian for fun..

Anything else?

For any time where your guests deserve a little bubbly Italian treat choose wisely, but most importantly, remember to have fun. La vita e bella, and that's what its all about.
