History of National Prosecco Day
National Prosecco Day was founded by none other than Riondo Prosecco. It was chosen to be on August 13 due to the timing of summer, with the intention of prosecco being fitting to drink sparkles in summer because of the kind of sparkly drink it is.
Riondo Prosecco actually earned the number one Prosecco title in 2010, also winning a Gold Medal for Minner Vinitaly in 2011. The brand was actually, believe it or not, acquired by Terlato Wines in January of 2016.
Prosecco was named after the Italian village of Prosecco, which is also named after the Prosecco grape. Apart from the sparkling wine we all know and love, it is also made and available in a still wine.
So no matter how you decide to celebrate this delightful holiday with a fun Prosecco Beverage, we recommend picking up some delicious cookies to enjoy as well – perhaps Boo-Shaw Bakery Vanilla Nut! What a perfect beverage / food pairing for a fun celebration day. Happy Summer and enjoy your Prosecco and Boo-Shaw Bakery Cookies!!
