Prosecco tends to be considered easy bubbles for your brunch mimosa or a weekday celebration. It's often compared to Champagne but Prosecco's second fermentation occurs in big steel tanks rather than the bottle like Champagne. This method produces different taste profiles and allows for a lower price point for your wallet. Fun fact - the original recipe for the Bellini actually used Prosecco and not Champagne as is traditional now. 

What does the DOC mean? DOC is short for "Denominazione di Origine Controllata" or controlled designation of origin (translated to English). European Union law outlines that Prosecco can only come from two Italian regions in the Northeastern part of the country. So while Prosecco might be Italy's most famous sparkling, only wines produced in this area can be called Prosecco DOC.
