Charmat Method

Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco is made using the Charmat method rather than the classic method. This means fermentation occurs in an autoclave or large pressurized container rather than in individual bottles. This method speeds up the fermentation process and it is said that the natural fragrance of the grapes are better preserved as well. The Charmat method is excellent for Prosecco since it preserves the fresh aroma of the grape.

Prosecco Cocktails

Mimosa

Pair this Prosecco with fresh summer fruits, light salads or spicy appetizers. But don’t leave it at that. Prosecco and signature cocktails go hand in hand. Try a classic Bellini with fresh peach puree and lemon juice topped with Prosecco. Top off a Buck’s Fizz or Mimosa with Prosecco or add in apricot liqueur or orange liqueur and make the Valencia or French Mimosa sparkle and shine with this little goodie. Another terrific classic to keep in mind is the Aperol Spritz with Aperol, Prosecco, a splash of soda water and orange slice.

Keep your cocktail simple and summer sipping fun and flavorful!
