Prosecco

Is Prosecco a grape, a wine, an appellation?! Actually, all of the above. The main grape used in Prosecco is Glera. The Glera grape was formerly known as Prosecco. The name Prosecco comes from the Italian village of the same name (near Trieste in northeast Italy), where both the grape and the wine originated. Prosecco’s worldwide popularity keeps growing, and its versatility seems never ending. With lower alcohol than most other sparklers, Prosecco is the perfect brunch option, either on its own or blended in a Bellini, Mimosa, or Aperol Spritz. Prosecco also makes for the perfect palate cleanser as an initial offering at bridal showers, receptions or wine-pairing dinners. This category ended in a three-way tie for Best in Class, with all three being fine representatives of the Prosecco category. Nathalie Gosselin
