Prosecco is a white wine grape primarily grown in Italy. The primary wine made from the grape is the eponymous sparkling wine. Prosecco wine is the main ingredient in the Bellini cocktail. The bubbly is rarely as cheap as Cava, but provides good flavors for a fraction of the price of Champagne. Prosecco producers cut costs by fermenting the second time in stainless-steel tanks. Unlike Asti, Prosecco is a bone-dry sparkling wine.
The majority of production takes place in Veneto, Italy, especially in the areas of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The explosive popularity of Prosecco wines has led to plantings in Australia and South America.
