An Italian prosecco has been launched into the off-trade to capture the UK’s growing interest in sparkling wines and the at-home cocktail occasion.
The 10.5% abv Scavi & Ray Veneto prosecco (rsp: £7.99) has won listings in some specialist wine stores and distributor Navson is currently in talks with supermarkets and off-licences to develop further distribution.
The Italian sparkling wine, well known as a key ingredient in the cocktail Bellini, is named after the prosecco grape and comes from the country’s Veneto region.
