Prosecco (Italy)

Prosecco has come a long way in a short time. Today, many people think of it as an alternative to Champagne and one that tends to cost a lot less. Prosecco is made in a very different way than Champagne (large steel tanks) and from a different grape (Glera), yet the quality level continues to rise. If you haven’t already discovered it, now’s the time.

Prosecco is a very food-friendly wine and although I spend most of my time sipping Prosecco with a plate of Prosciutto San Daniel, I have also grown to love it next to spicy Asian-inspired preparations. Singapore Spicy Shrimp Over Spinach was a perfect match.

NV La Farra Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Superiore Extra Dry - The nose was elegant, showing lemon and flowers with minerals and field grasses adding earthy depth. On the palate, it was soft with apple and inner florals. The finish was refreshing with notes of peach clinging to the palate. (90 points)

    Lovely range of bubblies and delicious food for thought. I would have enjoyed some comments on the behaviour of the mousse since some great tasting bubblies foam excessively in the mouth rather than tickle the tongue. Happy New Year! Richard

    It is only until very recently that I discovered Champagne and/or sparkling wine is the perfect match for Asian cuisine. I guess I had my head stuck in the sand all these years. I now keep several bottles on hand for when we order take out Asian food.

  • I'm looking for the recipe to a Mac & Cheese that we recently enjoyed at your winery last month. It was made with a round pasta, had a spicy Tomato olive oil taste and a crunch. Please send recipe!
