How to Celebrate National Prosecco Day in Style

When is National Prosecco Day?

Taking place on 13th August, National Prosecco Day offers the perfect opportunity to make use of the last of the summer sun. Whether it’s throwing a garden party for your nearest and dearest, or treating your colleagues to a midday tipple, there are so many ways you can embrace this light-hearted celebration.

When Was Prosecco Invented?

Though it might seem like Prosecco has only gained its popularity in recent years, the first known mention of the name Prosecco actually dates back to 1593.

The Glera grape, used to produce this delectable sparkling wine, is believed to be of Slovenian origin and was cultivated in the vineyards of the Italian village of “Prosecco” in Trieste, which borders Slovenia.

How is Prosecco Made?

According to the procedural guidelines, Prosecco must be produced with 85% of ‘Glera’ grapes. The grapes are pressed to create a liquid which is placed to rest in temperature-controlled tanks. Yeast is added to trigger fermentation, during which sugar is transformed into alcohol and carbon dioxide.

Each batch is then enriched with other batches, and decanted in large pressure chambers. Yeasts and sugar are added, triggering a second fermentation (re-fermentation). During this time, the yeasts metabolise the sugar, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide. The process can take from 30 to 90 days, after which time the sparkling wine is ready to be bottled, and 40 days later, it’s ready to be sold!

What is National Prosecco Day?

Founded by the infamous sparkling wine brand, Riondo Prosecco, National Prosecco Day was created to commemorate and raise a toast to the final weeks of summer.

Inject some sparkle into your mid-August weekend by celebrating this joyous occasion with some of your favourite Prosecco-loving pals!
