Champagne producers would like to make us believe that Prosecco’s huge successes does not affect champagne. That champagne and prosecco play in different leagues. It is possible, but hard to believe 100%. At least Prosecco has now succeeded with the feat of entering the French high speed TGV train bistro wagons.
You can now buy a mini bottle (20 cl) of “Bottega Il Vino dei Poeti” Prosecco DOC on the TGV trains and our guess is that the little bottle will sell like hot cakes. Much more prosecco than champagne is produced today (475 million bottles compared to 320 m, according to Drinks Business), although counted in value Champagne is bigger (for the moment?).
Come on the wine tour to Champagne this autumn and taste the French luxury bubbly on site.
