About: made from Prosecco grapes, primarily grown in Veneto region of Italy. Prosecco grapes can also be used to make spumante or frizzante. Prosecco is often used as a mixer for the Bellini or Poinsettia mixed-drink. Prosecco is similar to the French Champagne, but the name Prosecco can only be applied to wine that is made from Prosecco grapes grown in the Valdobbiadene/Conegliano regions of Italy. Dalmation Prosecco is made from dried grapes not fresh ones and is a sweeter wine akin to sherry.
