Toast to National Prosecco Day With This Prosecco-Infused Cheese!
Get ready to pop your corks...August 13th is National Prosecco Day!
National Prosecco Day was founded by Riondo Prosecco, an esteemed brand of Prosecco wine. August 13th was chosen because summer is the perfect time to enjoy a cold glass of Prosecco!
According Riondo Prosecco's website, "Prosecco is an Italian white wine that is produced in the Veneto region of northeast Italy and made using the Glera grape varietal. Proseccos are made using at least 85% of the Glera grape, and can include small amounts of other varietals local to the Italian region. This grape varietal, along with the terroir of the Veneto region, creates a tropical, fruit-forward taste profile for which prosecco is known."
Prosecco is fermented using a method called the Charmat Method, in which bubbles are trapped in the wine via carbonation in large steel tanks. This method produces a light-bodied Prosecco.
Now, what to pair with your Prosecco...
