The wine is made in the long perfected method of the region. A light and delicate still 'base' wine is made from the carefully harvested grapes. The quality is key at this stage to ensure the balance of the final wine is at the highest standard. This still wine is then placed into a large vessel and yeast and some sugar added. The yeast reacts with the sugar and a secondary fermentation takes place during which carbon dioxide is produced. This gas has nowhere to escape to as the vessel is pressurised and therefore slowly dissolves into the liquid. Subsequently it is released when the bottle is opened and forms the bubbles that make the wine so fresh and attractive.
Prosecco as we know it today first came to market around the 1960s when the winemakers of the region began to produce it in a dryer style.
The Veneto is one of the largest wine producing regions of Italy. Being in the North of the country and lying quite close to the cooling influence of the Adriatic sea, it is climatically suited to producing delicate, fresh and elegant wine-styles.
