Prosecco in the past was also the name of the Grapes.
More recently however, the name of the grape was changed to Glera to help further protect the Prosecco region in Italy.
What you might not know is that Glera isn’t the only grape allowed in Prosecco wine! It’s possible to blend up to 15% of the other indigenous grapes that grow in the region. These include names like Bianchetta, Verdiso, and Perera – quite rare indeed.
