Prosecco, guys — I don't know if you know this, but it's like, ~the cool new thing.~ We don't need champagne anymore (or Arbor Mist, because we have taste buds), because Prosecco is here. Can we tell the difference between Prosecco and Champagne and Arbor Mist? Probably not, but we'll keep buying our very affordable Prosecco anyway.
And it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out, but I guess I live right next to the Prosecco region — under a 2 hour drive. While many people think Italy is quite small, that is actually not at all true, as it would probably take one between 12-14 hours to drive from the Austrian border to the tip of the boot, and that's not even including Sicily. So to be close to a very cool and important wine region like Prosecco and not to have been there? Well, that needed to be taken care of.
