There is a large difference between champagne and prosecco. There are two sparkling styles of wine, but they are both very different from each other. Regions and grapes separate the two bottles of bubbly. Champagne comes from the champagne region of France. Prosecco comes from the northern region of Italy. Prosecco is made from the Glera grape variety. The methods of production are a lot different. The champagne method is very traditional. Prosecco uses the tank method.
- First things first, Champagne comes from the Champagne region in France, and Prosecco from Veneto in Northern Italy.
- The second key difference between these two sparkling wines are the methods of production; in particular, how the wine is made sparkling
- However, some Prosecco styles do also have lees ageing, or are made using the ‘traditional method’, generally giving a more complex wine.
“Prosecco is more about the fruit flavour profile of the Glera grape – associated with pear, apple, plus honeysuckle and floral notes.”
