When planning the drinks menu for your Christmas events, the question arises: Should one serve Champagne? Seltzer-spiked cocktails? The best option, however, is something else entirely: Prosecco, an entrancing sparkling wine from Italy’s Province of Treviso made with ancient Glera grapes, a favorite variety among vignerons stretching back to Roman times.
While Champagne is known for subtle bread and yeasty notes, Prosecco — an effervescent style of Italian white wine — offers light hints of cream and a smooth mouthfeel.
Prosecco is perfect to accompany during aperitifs based on cheese and salmon, with eggs or vegetables and risotto!
