Prosecco is more popular than ever and from the bacaros of La Serenissima into the Veneto its qualities are being celebrated – and visiting its producers makes for a great wine holiday, too
Few cities are more intimately acquainted with a drink than Venice is with prosecco. Produced mainly in the Veneto region, of which Venice is the capital, it is sipped in every back-street bacaro and plush hotel bar across town, whatever the hour. It provides the fizz in a bellini and tops up many a spritz as long Venetian afternoons give way to evening. Some places even have it on tap.
