Prosecco is one of the most loved sparkling wines in the world. Grown and bottled in the Veneto region in Italy, among the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills, Prosecco can be made from a variety of grapes. The oldest is the Glera grapes, it can also be made from Chardonnay or Pinot Gris grapes.

Prosecco’s reputation around the world allowed it to earn its own National day on the 13th of August every year. What better time and way to toast to the rest of the summer with a fresh glass of bubbly?

It can be enjoyed with many pairings, but our favorite will always be with mortadella with its smooth and harmonious flavor. There are so many recipes to prepare with mortadella – a fresh and original way of enjoying it is to make cheese tarts topped with mortadella. With Prosecco’s light structure and lively bubbles – it is no doubt a great addition to your aperitivo!

Prosecco pairs well with a charcuterie and cheese board, olives and bread sticks but it is better to avoid cheese that is too mature.
