 Many Opt for Italian Sparkling Wine to Toast the New Year

Italian fizz producers ended the year on a sparkling note as many people opted for Italian sparkling wine to toast the New Year. National farmers' body Coldiretti estimated that a total of 220 million bottles of Italian fizz will have been popped around the world by the end of the year-end holiday period.

Italian bubbly products range from the grapey, low-alcohol Moscato d'Asti to top proseccos from Valdobbiadene, which are increasingly seen as a credible rival to champagne and the top 'methode champenoise' sparklers from Australia, New Zealand and California.

The figures for the first nine months of 2014 revealed a 24 percent rise in sales of all forms of Italian sparkling wine. Despite the impact of the country's recession on the domestic market, which remained flat compared to 2013 and well below its peak levels of several years ago, this remarkable growth has been achieved. The booming exports help compensate the stagnating domestic demand.
