Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco
Green apple and orange zest mingle with heady honeysuckle and nectarine in Cavicchioli’s beautiful “1928” Prosecco. Lightly sweet, Cavicchioli is a winner with understated desserts like macarons or sponge cake. This Prosecco is wonderfully versatile, making it ideal for most wine party canapes.
Biancavigna Prosecco Brut
If champagne is more your speed, this stunning Prosecco will hit the spot. Most Proseccos are extra dry (read: slightly sweet), but this beauty from Biancavigna is brut, which means it contains less residual sugar. Serve at brunch with some smoked salmon for a knock-out pairing everyone will adore.
Freixenet Italian Rosé
Made from a blend of glera (aka the Prosecco grape) and pinot noir, Freixenet’s Italian bubbly is packed with aromas of ripe summer berries, red apple and citrus blossoms. This sparkling rosé’s subtle sweetness works well dishes with a touch of spice. For a tasty, unexpected food and wine pairing, whip up a batch of these spicy jalapeno poppers.

Mionetto Prosecco Brut
Like Biancavigna, Mionetto offers a wickedly delicious brut Prosecco. Fruity and floral, it’s ripe but without the same residual sugar levels you’d normally encounter in Prosecco. Each sip boasts elegance and nuance, and plenty of character. Without a doubt, Mionetto is fantastic for all occasions.
Value hunters can find serious bargains at their local Aldi, and wine is no exception. If you’re in the mood for mimosas, hit Aldi and pick up a few bottles of Belletti prosecco. It’s crisp, refreshing, with hints of lemon, pear and peach. Belletti hits that sweet spot of value and quality. Find more Aldi wines we recommend.
Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco
Lemon curd, orange, stone fruit, and a hint of melon leap off the palate in Cupcake Vineyard’s bright Prosecco. It also comes in mini versions if you want to treat yourself to a glass of Prosecco but don’t want to open a regular-sized bottle. Flexing your bartending skills? Cupcake Prosecco adds ample fruit and fizz to classics like Bellinis, sparkling punches and champagne cocktails.
Paloma Rosé Secco
Crafted from organic glera with a hint of the red raboso grape, Paloma’s rosé is a must for anyone who enjoys pink wine. Refined notes of raspberry, lemon curd, peach and honey dominate the profile of this highly polished sparkling. This one will take you from appetizer to dessert.
