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.
