Award Winning Italian wine producer and distiller Bottega, has launched its Accademia Prosecco Rainbow into the UK on-trade market. Having already grown Accademia sales by a huge 166% this year, whilst also securing wide distribution in the off-trade, Bottega looks to continue to grow its distribution by 500% next year.

Sandro Bottega, Founder & Managing Director of Bottega SPA comments;“Following a spike in Rosé Prosecco last year, we think the Prosecco market still has potential to grow.As well as new drinking rituals developed during lockdown, we’re finding that drinkers not only want quality, but they want to know the provenance of their drinks, i.e from ground to bottle.Which is why at Bottega, we’re proud to showcase our premium Italian taste, whilst also sticking to our roots of bottling in Venetian rainbow glass.”

These premium bottles recognise the most celebrated holidays so that hospitality outlets can capitalise on special moments, such as Halloween, Christmas, and Pride.What’s more, the Rainbow Collection also gives a nod to the renowned Venice Carnival and its festive atmosphere. Accademia bottles are inspired by the Venetian colourful art expressions which have

become synonymous with Italian craftsmanship. Produced in Italy’s Treviso area using the traditional Charmat method, the Accademia Prosecco Spumante Doc Brut encloses all the characteristics that made sparkling wines appreciated all over the world: liveliness, elegance and versatility. In each bottle exudes combined flavours of green apple, white peach, citrus fruits, acacia flowers and wisteria. The taste conquers each palate: fresh, light and pleasantly lively, with a good balance between acid- ity and sugar, make this wine elegant and refined.

Sandro Bottega concludes: “The advantage of our colourful bottles for vendors is a strong shelf impact, differentiating Bottega as a stand-out celebration bottle.We can’t wait to see Prosecco drinkers up and down the UK enjoying our colourful Italian-crafted Prosecco as we continue to dine out more and more.”

Accademia Rainbow Prosecco DOC is available (off- trade) across the UK RSP £84.99 (mixed case of six bottles).
