Prosecco Sparks Sparkling Wines Sales

We love sparkling wine, as we’ve mentioned more than once, and the category is doing very well thanks to Italian Prosecco   It’s quite fascinating that less than 20 years ago, Prosecco sales in the whole of the U.S. were about 500 cases.  Last year they came in at 2.3 million cases.  That’s really impressive growth.

Among the brands contributing to this success are La Marca, Zonin, Riondo and Risata.  The latter actually increased by a whopping 77%.  Now that’s a happy brand manager.
