Prosecco Wine Variety

Prosecco is a white wine variety grown in the North East of Italy. The grape variety gives it's name to a style of sparkling wine. It is becoming increasingly popular in Australia.

While Prosecco is mainly used to make low alcohol sparkling wines, occasionally it is used for still wines.

Prosecco can be frizzante, semi sparkling, or spumante, fully sparkling.

Prosecco is becoming more popular as many wine drinkers are looking for a light dry sparkling wine with lower alcohol. To some extent Prosecco is following on from the success of Moscato, but for people who prefer drier wine styles.

Prosecco and Food

Well, you don't need any. Prosecco is light and relatively low in alcohol and thus it can be enjoyed on it's own.

But it is quite suitable as an accompaniment to light meals or perhaps with a few olives late in the afternoon.
