Is there a British Prosecco?

“British Prosecco” does not exist as a legally recognized term. The name “Prosecco” is protected by European Union regulations and refers exclusively to a type of sparkling wine produced solely in the Prosecco region of northeastern Italy.

Although other countries may use similar grape varieties and production methods to make sparkling wine, they cannot use the name “Prosecco” unless the wine is produced in the designated region of Italy and meets specific criteria for production and labeling. Therefore, any sparkling wine produced in the UK or other countries cannot legally be called “Prosecco” and must be labeled under a different name.
