The name of the varietal, Prosecco, comes from the once Slovenian village of Prosecco that became a part of North-eastern Italy in 1918. It is a white grape variety that has been cultivated since 1800, on the hillsides in this region centered on Valdobbiadene. It is best know for its delicate and aromatic fruit and floral flavors most frequently in the form of sparkling wine.

After pressing of the grapes and clarification of the must, primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats for 10 days. After fermentation is complete, a second fermentation occurs in glass-lined tanks over 45 days. This process, known as Charmat, produces the bubbles to create the sparkling wine while preserving the inherent freshness of the Prosecco grape (an advantage over the more time-intensive Champagne method).
