This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! This week we’re sipping Nino Franco Brut Prosecco Superiore! Now, that’s a mouthful of a name, eh?
Like Champagne in France, Italian sparkling wine has become synonymous with Prosecco – but that’s not all that the country has to offer when it comes to bubbly!

This time of year we’re constantly asked: “what bottle of bubbles should I bring to Christmas dinner?!” Well, it really all depends on what you’re eating.

This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! This week we’re sipping Santa Margherita Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore! Jeez, that’s a mouthful eh?! 😂 Is this a bottle of bubbles you should POP? 💁 Or is it a FLOP? 🙅 Let’s see… Santa Margherita are world renowned for their famous Pinot Grigio, but recently their Prosecco is stealing the spotlight!

What’s better than gourmet food and wine? Well, probably having a little (or, a lot) of both under the same roof!
