History of Prosecco

Prosecco has its origins during the period medieval and Renaissance, and it seems to be the inheritor of Pucino, wine of Roman times and described by Pliny in his Naturalis Historia (I century B.C.).

Geographically the Prosecco origin must be sought in Istria and more precisely in the current area Prosek (Prosecco in Italian language) where Glera, grapes used for its production originates.
From Istria and Friuli the cultivation was further developed in Veneto, finding in Conegliano area the most vocated territory. “El bianco de Conejan” (the white wine from Conegliano), as it was called in Venice, was known and appreciated for its freshness and its pleasantness which today are still its distinctive traits.

The term “Prosecco”, to define the typical sparkling wine of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, seems to appear for the first time in a text written in the eighteenth century.
