The company has created a waiting list for those wanting to get their hands on it in time for Christmas

Rosé Prosecco was given the go ahead back in May 2020 and this will be one of the first of the rosé-coloured wines to hit UK shores.

The regulations state that Prosecco DOC Rosé must be produced from a majority of Glera grapes but can also include 10%-15% Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) to achieve a pink hue. Once pressed, the liquid must spend at least 14 weeks in tank.

This version, called Pink Prosecco, is said to have a fruitier nose than standard Prosecco, with hints of strawberry and blackberry, ‘racing’ bubbles and a light, semi-sweet finish.

Paul Anthony Gidley, CEO of Pink Prosecco, said: ‘Brits are the biggest consumers of Prosecco behind its native Italy and the popular fizz has become as much a part of the culture as a pint of beer.

‘Thanks to our experience with Slim Wine, we know that the UK has been shouting out for an innovative new sparkling wine and we are pleased to be among the first to hit the market with this new Pink Prosecco DOC Rosé.’
