Prosecco picks for New Years Eve

Here are a few of my favorites for New Year's Eve celebration.

Valdo Extra Dry Prosecco
"... straw colored, with aromas like a fresh loaf of bread and, well, grapes... and flavors of grapefruit, melon, apple, stretching into a refreshing finish. "

Col Vetoraz, Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

Ruggeri Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Gold Label DOC
"... from the Valdobbiadene area of the veneto region, this spunky Extra Dry Prosecco has fresh fruit aromas, with flavors on the sweet side of sour Granny Smith apples and a wonderful floral finish."

Riondo Prosecco
"... with delicous fragrances of orange blossoms, apricots and ripe peaches."

Prosecco is not made by the methode champenoise in which the wine undergoes secondary fermentation in its own bottle, instead it happens in large, pressurized tanks.
