Unveiling the Story of Prosecco: A Journey Through Time and Bubbles

To understand Prosecco is to unravel a tapestry of history and tradition. The name “Prosecco” finds its origins in the quaint Italian village of Prosecco, nestled in the picturesque region of Veneto. Historically documented as ‘‘Prosecho’’ by the Englishman Fynes Moryson during his travels in northern Italy in 1593, it stood among Italy’s distinguished wines. Over centuries, production techniques evolved and improved, giving birth to a higher quality wine. As the 21st century unfolded, the global appeal of Prosecco skyrocketed, particularly outside Italy, driven by its accessible price and exceptional quality. The UK and the US witnessed a significant surge in consumption, solidifying Prosecco’s status as one of the most beloved wines. Celebrating National Prosecco Day is an invitation not only to savor this sparkling delight but also to embark on a historical journey, appreciating how this effervescent wine has made its way into our glasses today.

National Prosecco Day: A Toast to Italian Sparkle

National Prosecco Day encapsulates the essence of summer, symbolized by the iconic Italian sparkling wine. Originating from the passion of Riondo Prosecco, a brand that soared to prominence by clinching the prestigious title of the number one Prosecco in 2010 and later earning a Gold Medal at Minner Vinitaly in 2011, this day epitomizes the joy that Prosecco brings. The choice of August 13th was deliberate, aligning with the lively essence of Prosecco, mirroring the spirited nature of this sparkling beverage and the buoyant atmosphere of the summer season.
