Champagne and Prosecco – what’s the difference?

There’s 3 key differences between these fantastic sparkling wines – first off, Champagne is from France, while Prosecco is from Italy.

Second, Champagne is made in the Champenoise method, where the second fermentation occurs in the bottle. Prosecco is made in the Charmat method, where the second fermentation happens in large vats.

And last, the grapes are different! Champagne is made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier, while Prosecco is made with the Glera grape from Italy’s Veneto region.
