Villa Sandi Prosecco DOCG was featured last Saturday (November 16) at the prestigious Champagne Challenge in Los Angeles.
The yearly event is not a competition per se. But the sold-out blind tasting allows guests to taste a number of sparkling wines side-by-side.
Prosecco DOCG and Champagne are completely different appellations that produce radically different wines.
But more and more, consumers and wine professionals alike are discovering that Prosecco DOCG, when well made, can deliver depth, nuance, and quality that rivals that of its transalpine counterparts.
30 years ago, no one knew what Prosecco was in the U.S. and it’s important to note that the Prosecco DOCG — DOCG is the top category in the Italian DOC system — wasn’t created until 2009.
Today, sales of Prosecco DOCG surpass sales of other sparkling wines in the U.S. (in terms of volume).
It’s all part of the new wave of Prosecco in North America and an indication of the quality of the wines and the way they are perceived and embraced by Americans.
We couldn’t have been more proud to be included in this unique and truly original tasting!
