St. Paul, Minn. – September 28, 2021– Prestige Beverage Group announces the addition of Prosecco Rosé D.O.C to the award-winning line of Astoria Italian wines available in the United States. Prosecco is currently the number one selling wine coming out of Italy, not only for the Sparkling Wine varietal, but for the wine category overall1. Building off consumer’s thirst for Prosecco wines, Astoria Prosecco Rosé D.O.C. is made up of 85% Glera and 15% Pinot Noir.
Grapes are hand-harvested in small lots from the Astoria Wines estate vineyards to produce the highest quality product. The new varietal is pale pink in color with continuous fine bubbles. It has aromas of red fruit and flowers followed by harmonious flavors of bright cherries and hints of strawberry, finishing creamy and well balanced.
A family owned and operated winery, led by brothers Paolo and Giorgio Polegato, Astoria Wines is one of the biggest names in the Prosecco world. Its estate was founded in 1987 and has grown to be the leading private Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG wine maker, with countless accolades from top wine competitions globally. The Astoria winery estate vineyards span 40 hectares of the picturesque Prosecco Hills, in the Veneto region in northeastern Italy, whose unique landscape was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2019.
“This sparkling new wine is one of the highest quality Prosecco Rosés available today due to its premium hand harvested grapes from estate vineyards that are expertly crafted into a vibrant wine that can be enjoyed year-round,” said Kathy Reilly, VP Marketing and Innovation at Prestige Beverage Group. “At Prestige we’re fortunate to have innovative partners like the Polegato family of Astoria to bring unique wine experiences to U.S. consumers.”
