What is Prosecco?
Prosecco is a white wine variety grown in the North East of Italy. The grape variety gives its name to a style of sparkling wine. It is becoming increasingly popular in Australia and is now being produced in a number of Australian wine regions.
There was some commercial pressure to rename the grape variety name to “Glera” and to claim geographic indicator protection to the name Prosecco. 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.
