Prosecco police make sure product is authentic

Veneto sparkling wine, if not from a labeled bottle risks fine

Prosecco police make sure product is authentic

Treviso, July 1 - Bars and restaurants in the region of Veneto, home to the delicious sparkling wine known as Prosecco DOC, have been warned to serve the drink directly from the bottle or face a fine, the ministry of agriculture said on Monday. To make sure that the regional delight is served properly, a special agent, Andrea Battistella, has been appointed as a sort of Prosecco policeman. Battistella will make surprise visits to establishments throughout the region to make sure that it is clear what is being served. If the so-called Prosecco is drawn from tap or served in a carafe, then it is not considered the real McCoy. Only labeled bottles with the Doc stamp can be called Prosecco, otherwise the owners risk a fine.
