Prosecco History Until the end of 2009, Prosecco was the name of a white grape variety that must now be called Glera. Since 1 January 2010, according to a decree of the Italian Minister of Agriculture, Prosecco is a designation of origin for Italian sparkling wines ("Spumante"), semi-sparkling wines ("Frizzante") and still wines from the provinces of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, which can only be produced in Italy. The new strict rules for Prosecco define very clearly the area of cultivation, place of production, region of vinification (processing of the grapes into sparkling wine) as well as the bottling of the Prosecco. This has significantly raised the quality level. At that time, many Prosecco products were transported from Italy to Germany via tanker trucks to be bottled in mass production. As a rule, quality suffered as a result.
