Day 18

Bubbles are back! But this time, we have selected a classic prosecco that can be enjoyed as an aperitif with appetizers, or with the main meal. This is your reminder….don’t forget to buy some bubbly for your holiday table!

 

Temp Note: This wine should be chilled to about 40ºF. Open and serve right after taking it out of the fridge.

 

ABOUT PROSECCO

In 2009, the EU established the Prosecco region a PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin). This means that you CANNOT legally produce a wine and call it Prosecco if the grapes are grown outside of a specific area. The name of the grape was changed from Prosecco to Glera to prevent misuse of the name.

 

Supporting Grapes:

Prosecco may be made of 100% Glera or up to 15% of Bianchetta Trevigiana, Chardonnay, Perera, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, and/or Pinot Nero (vinified as a white wine) can be blended in.
