Well, not us personally, but all of us together. Prosecco, the Italian sparkling wine, has record sales. Prosecco is just one of many wines that are made in Veneto, the northern Italian region around Verona and Venice.
It is one of Italy’s most productive wine regions. All in all they produce 7.5 million hectolitres of wine. As often in Italy, the contrasts are big as are the variations in style.
In Veneto dinner starts with a Prosecco for aperitif. Then follows a white soave to the antipasti, and generously fruity Bardolino to the pasta, and in intense and elegant Valpolicella to the meat.
With the dessert, if it is for example some kind of chocolate, we will have a powerful amarone. Or if it more on the fruit and berries side we will choose instead an intensely sweet Recioto di Soave. And everything ends with a small, very small grappa.
What could be nicer than to sip a Prosecco and then all the other local wines on a terrace in Veneto? What about joining us on a wine tour to Verona, with amarone, Valpolicella and everything else!
