Five stunning Proseccos from under £10 to over £40

Graham Norton Prosecco DOC

Ok, so you may love Graham Norton, but you might be sceptical about a fizz featuring his name on the label, wondering, quite understandably, whether it is actually any good, or a basic fizz destined to sell on the celebrity association.

Well, you can put such fears aside as this Prosecco was sampled ‘blind’, which means that the judges had no knowledge as to the producer. For them, it was just a number in a line-up, and it wasn’t until after the tasting that it was discovered that this standout Prosecco in the DOC range of wines was the Norton-backed fizz.

So what can you expect? It is a benchmark slightly creamy style of Prosecco with plenty of peach and pear flavours, a touch of sweetness, and a nice uplifting fresh apple note on the finish. Crowd-pleasing and well done, with a reasonable RRP in the UK of just under £10.

According to the official information from the producing company, Invivo Wines, Graham Norton’s own Prosecco is sourced from the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia wine growing regions in Northern Italy, and is described as “sublimely light with beautiful fine bubbles and fresh with aromas of white flowers and a hint of citrus.”

Graham Norton also puts his name to a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and is planning to do the same with a gin in the future too.
