Celebrating the New Year with Mionetto:
There’s nothing quite like a bottle of bubbles for a celebration.
If you are a fan of Prosecco, you probably have already tried Mionetto. Dating back to 1887 when Francesco Mionetto opened his winery in Valdobbiadene, right in the heart of the Prosecco region, his passion and love for Prosecco lead to the creation of a superb range of authentic Mionetto Prosecco wines, produced from the Glera grape. Here, Prosecco is produced using the Charmat method – after initial processing and a gentle pressing of the grapes, the first temperature-controlled fermentation takes place at the facilities of selected producers. The second fermentation then takes place in autoclaves – specially designed pressure chambers which are temperature controlled to ensure that the freshness and aroma of the grape are maintained. Finally, the wine is bottled, to produce a light, fresh and contemporary drink which makes the perfect aperitif.
Prosecco DOC and DOCG can only come from a particular part of Italy, in the North-East between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. There are around 24,000 hectares of vineyards there, with 13,000 producers and 375 cellars. Mionetto is produced in the heart of the region and their range of Prosecco includes some very special DOCG bottles, luxury DOC Proseccos and organic and biodynamic Proseccos. There’s even a traditionally produced Spago range, with a cork tied by string! Something for every taste.
As you may have already read, we’ve been trying our hand at making a seasonal Prosecco and Orange cocktail for Cenone – and enjoyed it so much that we asked our friends at Mionetto Prosecco if they’d be willing to sponsor a giveaway. So, we now have a whole case of Mionetto for one lucky London-Unattached reader. All you need to do is follow the rafflecopter through and remember to answer the mandatory question in the comments below.
You’ll find Mionetto Prosecco for sale in leading supermarkets and wine merchants throughout the UK including Sainsbury, Tesco and Majestic or online with Amazon. And for more information check out the Mionetto website or Mionetto facebook page
