ALT Heline. See more The 100 Best Dresses of 2014 1. Champagne is far superior to the Italian equivalent, Proseco, or Cava, or sparking wine because of the yeast true French champagne is made with. "It gives it the aroma of brioche, bread, croissants," Heline tells Pret-a-Reporter. "Proseco is like a can of coke. The gas is added later. Champagne is the best chardonnay and pinot grapes in the world, with yeast incorporated. I mean, do you want Zara or an Hermes bag?" 2.

Prosecco: No longer the 'poor man's Champagne'? - Dec. 29, 2014

luxury prosecco A Prosecco is typically considered premium once it costs over $20 a bottle, making it a luxury accessible even to the most casual buyer who may usually only spend $10 to $18 on a bottle. Proseccos from Mionetto and Altaneve are going high-end. Mionetto, the largest supplier of Prosecco to the U.S., introduced a luxury line in 2013 with that customer in mind. That line tops out at $35 a bottle. The luxury line currently represents 6% to 7% of Mionetto's total sales. "Our wish is to have the luxury line be about 10% to 15%," said Enore Ceola, the managing director of Mionetto. This year, the company sold about half a million cases of Prosecco, and says it has seen a yearly growth rate of about 30% over the last several years. Ceola said there's still a lot more room for growth since the number of Americans drinking Prosecco is still small.

By Jillian Eugenios @jillianeugenios December 29, 2014: 6:17 AM ET This bottle of bubbly costs $2K NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Even at some of the fanciest parties this New Year's Eve, the bottles of bubbly that will be popped open won't be classic French Champagne but its sparkling Italian cousin, Prosecco, instead. Prosecco sales have been booming in recent years, partly due to its affordability. But that's starting to change. Higher-end Proseccos have entered the market, with prices as high as $160 a bottle -- and, in some cases, these sparkling wines may even start commanding the same respect as a chilled bottle of Veuve Clicquot. "Cava and Prosecco are shedding the idea of the poor man's alternative for Champagne," said Chris Deas of New York's Zachys Wine & Liquor, a family-owned wine shop that sells nationwide. "People are becoming more educated and more experienced." Deas said sparking wine is a "huge growth area" for his business, especially in cities like New York and San Francisco. "There's a hip wine culture in places where the sommeliers are able to educate the buyers who are coming in," he said. The buyer of a premium bottle of Prosecco will get a sparkling wine that's rich and elegant, with a taste that's derived in part from the soil where the grapes are grown.
