Graham Norton adds Prosecco to wine range

UK chat show host Graham Norton has added a Prosecco to his range of GN wines, produced in partnership with New Zealand’s Invivo, taking on the booming sparkling category for the first time.

The Prosecco is the fourth addition to the Graham Norton range, which already includes a Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and a Shiraz.

Norton teamed up with New Zealand wine producers Invivo to launch the brand in 2014, and is personally involved in selecting the blend from tank samples alongside Invivo’s founders and winemakers, Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron, who joke that their wine is made from “grapes, time and two maxed out credit cards.”

Production on the first GN vintage, a 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, was limited to around 12,000 bottles, with the entire range having shifted close to five million bottles since its launch.

The range is available in nine countries, with the GN Sauvignon Blanc 2017 winning a Gold medal in the Drinks Business Global Sauvignon Masters last year, a wine that was also chosen to be served in Qantas Business class.

Graham Norton’s own Prosecco, sourced from the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia wine growing regions in Northern Italy, is described as “sublimely light with beautiful fine bubbles and fresh with aromas of white flowers and a hint of citrus. The fine mousse fills your senses with sweet scented floral notes and finishes beautifully crisp.”

The Graham Norton Prosecco will launch in the UK in Sainsbury’s from July.

A video detailing its creation can be seen below.
