When Did Prosecco Become Popular
There has a phenomenal rise in the popularity of prosecco…
Prosecco have been widely accepted as far back as the early 70’s. Aureliano Acanti can be seen boasting of the sparkling wine in his writing dated back to 1754. But then looking at the roman empire, prosecco has constantly and consistently been used as a bouquet wine, referred to as puccino using the Glera grape as it’s major constituent.
The 18th century was the century when the Glera cultivation expanded in Italy, it can be seen grown or cultivated in the veneto as well as the friuli region, this fact can be seen in the Roccolo text. The production trend continue to grow and it gained prominence in other neighboring areas that connect to the stated region which is the veneto and friuli region repectively. And this is when the Prosecco of this recent time was first produced taking it into the 20th century where the secondary fermentation technology was adopted.
A record dated back to 1937 illustrates that prosecco wine is usually sold off in the barrel when the springs commence and then bottled and it was assumed that it derives it’s sparkling aura after the wine have been bottled well we can say that sparkling will be as a result of processing that have been undergone unknowingly by the producers.
The 20th century witnessed technology advances in terms of the production of the prosecco wine, the method of production of the prosecco wine we see today was perfected and blended as well as a perfect or should I say exceptional prosecco wines with good quality was produced.
The wine is fast growing in the UK, the UK that was known for its love when it comes to champagne but recent studies have shown that the prosecco wine is now out numbering the champagne in terms of purchase. In august 2015 alone the information resources inc recorded that the sales of prosecco in UK has grown or increased than that of the champagne, the bubbly drink sales in the last 12 months of the year 2015 soared up to £338.6m, this is an increase of about 75% from previous year of the sales.
Prosecco is more popular when it comes to sparkling wine because of its fruity flavour unlike the champagne that possesses secondary flavour, the prosecco can be seen to be adopted more because it gives a suiting touch to the taste board. Also because the prosecco wine is less expensive compare to the champagne then it’s popularity I guess increased and it’s flavour also is a magical touch to its make.
