Taking their name from the “Little Steamer” boats that used to run along the canals of Venice, Vaporetto have their roots firmly planted in the north of Italy. Their wines are made from fruit grown on some of the finest cool-climate plots, which gives their wines wonderful fruit clarity and poise.
Prosecco is an Italian DOC or DOCG wine produced in a large area spanning nine provinces in the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions, and named after the village of Prosecco. It is made from the Prosecco grape (renamed Glera in 2009 within the European Union), but denomination rules allow up to 15% of the wine to be a blend of several other permitted varieties. Prosecco is almost always made in sparkling or semi-sparkling styles (spumante and frizzante, respectively), but still white wine (tranquillo) is also permitted. Wikipedia
