Having a "laid back" after the wedding wedding party, at an Italian restaurant, and need some suggestions for Proseco. I know it's terrible, but Princess thinks it's the appropriate bubbly. Thanks.

    I often get whatever the house Prosecco is at an Italian restaurant. Sure, there is variation in quality, but at a wedding party how much difference does it make? After a couple of glasses, most people won't notice.

      We pour Nino Franco Rustico in our bar and most people enjoy it. Granted, we intend it for use in Bellinis, but the occasional 'straight' service doesn't seem to offend ...... And Rustico is, I believe, their lower end Prosecco. Just sayin'.

        Agree with RL and Sunshine: Good prosecco is good wine, indeed. (It's even better sipping it in while travelling in the Veneto!)

        Bele Casel Asolo is a nicely made wine at a great price. I am a big fan of Nino Franco's "Primo Franco," which is vintage (and a higher price point).

          just like all other sparkling wines, there are good Proseccos, meh Proseccos, and crappy Proseccos.

            Prosecco can be quite good. Try Zardetto and Sorelle Bronca.
