I found myself fancying a bubbly glass in preparation of joining my husband’s family at a restaurant for Sunday brunch. As it was slightly in the earlier part of the day, I wanted a glass that was not only effervescent, but also considerably light and refreshing. Chilling in my fridge was the befitting selection of Mionetto Prosecco Organic D.O.C. Treviso [NV]. The Mionetto family of wines has been producing Prosecco since 1887; today it is the most popular brand of Prosecco in the US. Last year Wine Enthusiast bestowed Mionetto with the “2011 Importer of the Year” Award. In addition to it being organically produced free of pesticides and fertilizers, the carbon footprint was further lightened by the bottle, label and shipping materials all being made from recycled materials.
