Last but not least–this one immediately following our wine-tour-by-boat around Manhattan–our band of adventurers opted for this prosecco at the Drunken Horse on 10th Avenue in New York. On our tour we learned that the US is the second-largest consumer of wine in the world, recently outranking Italy in per capita consumption. Only 10% of this market share is sparkling wine–and still 40% of this is consumed from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve annually. Prosecco is a part of this trend, and the one we tasted here at the Horse definitely fit the profile–light, citrusy, and fun.
Special thanks to our friends Angela and George for joining us and treating us to a great afternoon of fun tastings.
