Raspberry gin, rosé cider and now pink prosecco. The UK loves a sparkly pink drink in their lives, and so do we. It won’t be long now until you can enjoy a Pink Prosecco as it is set to launch in the UK from the first time next week- just in time for Christmas.
Rosé wine has been on the shelves in the UK for years, bottles of rosé would be seen scattered around house parties throughout the UK. PINK Prosecco, coming to the UK, is made in a winery owned by the Vice President of the Prosecco Council, so you can be assured it will be high quality.
Pink Fizz has caused a stir in the wine world and has already gained nearly 400,000 fans on social media.
Since 2009, all bottles produced with Prosecco label must be in the Treviso and Trieste region of northern Italy and have to hold a quality standard. The wine has held a DOC protected status within the EU.
The Italian Prosecco council (DOC) stated that grapes used in Prosecco must be at least 85% Glera, giving it their white colour. But, as of May last year council allowed bottles to have a mix of Glera and Pinot Noir grapes. After taking a year to be approved, the wine went into production in May 2020.
The wine must still be a majority Glera grape but can now include up to 15% Pinot Noir variety to achieve the lovely pink colour. The Pink fizz will cost £8.99 online, or you can get a case of six for £53.94.
