National Prosecco Day
Celebrate Prosecco Day with a refreshing, light drink! Prosecco, a sparkling white wine, has been growing in popularity over the years due to its affordable price and delicious taste.
This wine is not only rare outside of Italy, but it has been around for many decades. Prosecco has a much longer history than most people outside Italy realize. Its origins are likely to be back at least 2000 years ago, and it was 200 BC that the Romans first called this white wine “Puccino”.
This wine is made from grapes from the Prosecco region of northeastern Italy. It is very similar to Champagne in that it must have been grown there to get the Prosecco label. The border with Slovenia is this region of Italy. Its largest city is Trieste.
Prosecco wines can be made either in Spumante style, which is sparkling wine, or Frizzante style, which are semi-sparkling products. Prosecco DOC Spumante is the most popular variant of this wine, which produces long-lasting bubbles.
Only 5 percent of Prosecco wines made in Tranquillo style, with no bubbles, are exported.
Prosecco is a white wine similar to Champagne. It is typically bubbly and light in taste. Prosecco is a slightly more affordable wine than Champagne because of the different processes used to make it.
Champagne can go through secondary fermentation in its own bottles, but Prosecco must be bottled in large stainless steel vats. This difference means that the production time can be shorter, as little as 30 days for Champagne and up to 9 months for higher-end products.
Prosecco’s affordability has likely made it a popular choice over the last two decades. Champagne prices often make it difficult for many to enjoy it regularly. Prosecco on the other hand offers all the joy and delight of white bubbly wine without the prohibitive price tag.
This white wine is made from a grape originally known as the Prosecco grape. However, it was renamed in the EU in 2009 to the Glera grape. Glera grapes were cultivated elsewhere in Italy over the past few years. These include Brazil, Argentina and Romania.
However, it is important to remember that although it can’t be called “Prosecco” because it was grown in these countries, the process and resulting product could produce very similar results that can still be enjoyed in a similar way.
