Where to drink Prosecco in London

Three years ago we broke the worrying news of an impending global Prosecco shortage due to the perfect storm of insatiable demand coupled with a short harvest.

The news was picked up by the UK press and spread like wildfire, whipping up panic across the country and leading fizz fans to clear the shelves of their local supermarkets, stockpiling Prosecco in preparation for the forthcoming drought.

Luckily for everyone, while stocks ran low, the Italian fizz continued to flow, and the summer of 2015 was saved. Three years on and our passion for Prosecco in the UK is still going strong.

Last year 440 million bottles of Prosecco were produced, the lion’s share of which headed to the UK as Britain remains the number one export market for the fizz.

According to IWSR forecasts published last year, sales of Prosecco are forecast to hit 12.7m cases in Italy by 2020, while in the UK, sales are expected to reach 8.3m cases by 2022.

Today is National Prosecco Day and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of the best places in the capital to enjoy the popular Italian fizz straight up or in classic cocktails like the Bellini. Salute!
