good prosecco, available locally?
Can anyone recommend a good prosecco that I can find fairly easily (like at TJ's Top Line, Silverlake Wine, Colorado Wine Co. or on the Westside) ? Not too crazy expensive, maybe in the $15 or less range...
My best recent Prosecco purchase (09/13/2008):
Bellusi Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, $ 9.75/btl
Los Angeles Wine Co. 310-306-9463
Old reliable for me is Mionetto il Prosecco (not the rosé, not the moscato). Around $11 at Wine Country in Signal Hill, but is becoming increasingly available around town...
Note to self: Try the Bellusi ASAP!
Just asked that question of Charlie Puffer at Topline yesterday, and he has 3 for no more than $10, that he really likes, one not exactly a prosecco, but would serve the purpose, for $8.99
Give Topline a call at 323.665.8484 or 818.500.9670
An excellent prosecco -- never champagne, because the flavor is too yeasty and rich -- and low-acid white peach puree are all you need for a great Bellini. Unfortunately, ripe white peaches are not always available when the craving hits you. The Perfect Puree Company, a well-regarded purveyor in Napa Valley, seems to sell retail only by mail and in Northern California markets. Does anyone know where to get top-quality puree in Southern California?
My usual, "every day" prosecco is the one at Whole Foods... blue and ecru label. perhaps a splash of gold. Sorry, I never bothered to remember the name of it...
It's usually 9.99
