Prosecco's star continues to rise, according to latest figures

16 December 2015

Prosecco's popularity is showing no signs of slowing down, according to latest reports from the region. Exports of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG gained 10.8% in value in 2014.

Turnover reached €146.5m (£106.7m), with 31.9m bottles being exported, at an average of €4.59 (£3.34) per bottle. According to the region's Consortium for the Protection of Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG, Europe accounted for €119.6m (£87m), with €29.6m (£21.56m) in export value going outside Europe.

The consortium released these positive figures late last week, along with information about its Conegliano Valdobbiadene Academy, a free online class outlining how to choose a prosecco, how to serve it, what foods to pair with it, and more. Skip ahead to the third lesson, dedicated to all-things on-trade, including information about storage of this sparkling wine.
