When we think of the holiday season getting closer, what’s one of the things that comes to mind? Popping the cork with friends and family to celebrate together. Of course, you can enjoy sparkling wine all year long, especially on a weekday pizza night or Taco Tuesday, but over the holidays you want to find that special treat that makes you feel close with your loved ones. Prosecco DOC is what you’re looking for.
With its bright, lively bubbles, and crisp, fruity flavors, Prosecco DOC is not only a great gift, it will also bring your meal, friends, and family together. Here are a few options to pique your interest and let you meet the Italian bubbles that will brighten your winter.
FOR THOSE WHOSE MANTRA IS “CLASSIC IS CLASSY…”
Val D’Oca Prosecco DOC is a refreshing sparkling wine bursting with fragrant aromas of white stone fruits, apple, and wildflowers. Crisp and easy to drink, the harmonious taste of bright citrus fruits and soft finish make it perfect as an apéritif, as well as with pasta, fresh seafood, or sparkling cocktail for a night out.

Villa Sandi Il Fresco Prosecco DOC is perfect to pop during a celebratory dinner. Its aromas of ripe golden apples and honeysuckle and its dry, fresh, and fruit-driven flavor will please your palate. Supple bubbles keep this wine lively, zipping away the sweetness and bringing out lemon-lime and green-apple flavors. It’s a clean, pleasantly sweet sparkler for grilled prawns with fruit salsa.

AND FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T RESIST A UNIQUE SHADE OF PINK…
With a fine bright perlage and a pale pink color, Brilla! Prosecco DOC Rosé boasts delicate yet complex fruity notes. Fresh and light on the palate, it features a balanced acidity and a subtle roundness. While you can enjoy rosé bubbles during happy hour, this wine is also excellent with fish soups, grilled fish, and courses based on mushrooms. Wine.com, $14.99
A mix of Glera and Pinot Noir, Valdo Marca Oro Prosecco DOC Rosé has a lovely pink hue and persistent perlage. Its initial inviting floral notes lead to aromas of apple, pear and small red berries. This Veneto staple is also perfect as an apéritif, and it pairs very well with pasta, fish, or tartare. Wine.com, $14.99
