Prosecco is a sparkling wine just like champagne. Although they might be similar in that aspect, they are grown in very different regions. Champagne comes from a region in France, while Prosecco is made in the north-eastern parts of Italy. These regions span over the Friulio and Vento regions. The two sparkling wines also have varied tastes: Champagne is known to be dry and acidic, and prosecco is sweeter and slightly soft.
It is made from a grape type called glera. Some types of Prosecco are made exclusively from this, and some producers blend it with other grapes like chardonnay. All Prosecco must contain 85 per cent of glera grape by law.
This sparkling wine could prove to be a classy option, and also a much lighter one on your pockets. Champagne is generally more expensive to produce, due to its market positioning and demand.
