Why is Prosecco so popular?
Did you know that the UK is the second largest consumer of Prosecco, with only Italy itself in the number one spot?
Made in the northeast of Italy, it is increasingly popular and a preferred choice, for many reasons. It’s light and delicate but with a taste full of flavour. It’s comparably cheaper to Champagne and English Sparkling Wine and it’s very versatile. It tastes great as an aperitif. It is ideal as a celebratory toast. Plus, it is delicious in cocktails, including the ever-popular Aperol Spritz. Finally, Prosecco also pairs well with a wide range of foods, including not only fish but also Asian cuisine and spicy foods.
This means whatever your Christmas catering plan - a bottle of Prosecco is sure to pair well.

Party with Prosecco
Prosecco is the perfect party drink, with extra dry, as well as brut options - to suit everyone's taste. Choose your preferred combination of flavours from tangy citrus flavours, to apples and melon.
It’s ideal for toasting not only a special birthday, but celebrating employees and colleagues at Christmas parties, for honouring special family and friends at festive gatherings, and for toasting at any New Year celebrations.
Pairing Christmas Prosecco
As mentioned above, Prosecco pairs well with lots of food combinations.
You may think of it as something to drink on its own – perhaps on Friday night after work with a group of friends! But consider opening a bottle the next time you are enjoying fish cakes, oysters, a seafood pasta dish, as well as cured Italian meats.
The sweeter Proseccos also pair fabulously with Asian dishes, including Thai and Chinese savoury and noodle dishes, as well as sushi.
Also for those with a sweet tooth, Prosecco is ideal to enjoy with chocolate (of course), macarons and popcorn.
Enjoy Prosecco this Christmas
Make sure you have a bottle or three of Prosecco added to your Christmas shopping list, this year. Prosecco makes a luxurious Buck’s Fizz – just add a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice - the perfect way to start Christmas morning and make breakfast extra special. A glass of this Italian fizz also tastes great with smoked salmon – a very traditional Christmas Dinner starter, as well as a favourite for a Boxing Day platter.
