Prosecco vs. Champagne
Sparkling wine is unmistakably divine, but when comparing the two most popular types—Prosecco and Champagne—you will discover two delicacies with many delightful differences. A quick peek at the when, where and how behind each of these wines is all you’ll need to select your next bottle of bubbly with confidence!
WHERE ARE THEY MADE?
Prosecco is a sparkling wine produced only in the—wait for it—Prosecco region of Italy, just a stone’s throw away from Venice. This idealistic setting is made up of beautiful, green hillsides and gets lavish amounts of both rainfall and sunshine. La Marca Prosecco is crafted in the heart of Italy’s Prosecco capital, Treviso.
Champagne is produced exclusively in the—you guessed it—Champagne region of France, about 120 miles East of Paris. The Champagne region has a cool, moody climate and features a unique blend of rolling hills and lush forests.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM?
Did you know that all Sparkling wines start as a still (non-bubbly) wine? Prosecco is made from Glera grapes while a Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. The signature bubbles in both wines are then achieved through a second round of fermentation. That’s right—Sparkling wine is so nice it’s fermented twice!
It’s here, in the second fermentation, where Prosecco and Champagne really begin to take different paths. Champagne is fermented inside the bottle using the traditional Methode Champenoise. Prosecco undergoes a newer, innovative process called Charmant Method, which takes place before the wine is bottled. While each of these methods allow the grapes and wine to taste their best, the Prosecco method also happens to be more efficient, allowing it to offer incredible taste with a more petite price tag.
Toast to life’s most joyful moments, big or small, with lively bubbles and fresh fruit flavors. Explore, shop, and gift La Marca Prosecco.
The delicate La Marca Prosecco has a pale, golden straw color and sparkles with lively effervescence. Opening with aromas of fresh-picked citrus and honeysuckle blossoms, the crisp, clean palate brings fruity flavors of green apple, juicy peach and ripe lemon, framed by hints of minerality. The finish is light and refreshing with a tantalizing hint of sweetness.
Always serve La Marca Prosecco chilled between 46-50°F. A versatile Italian Sparkling wine, La Marca Prosecco can be served in sparkling flutes or white wine glasses. A full bottle serves approximately 5-7 glasses. After pouring the first round, seal the opened bottle with a bottle stopper to keep remaining wine fresh and effervescent and keep the wine chilled to 46-50°F. An opened bottle should last about 3-4 hours with the bottle closure.
La Marca Prosecco has the charm to stand alone as an aperitif, but it also has the body and the acidity to pair well with a range of foods, from seafood and mild cheeses to rich pasta dishes and decadent desserts.
