There’s something special about brunch. As if time was a bit blurry and hours softer and longer. Many take advantage of the occasion, with good reason, to settle at the table with obligatory flexible attire and plenty of comforting dishes to nibble on, right up to goodbyes.

To add a little pizzazz to the rather nonchalant affair, reach for a glass of Prosecco DOC, on its own or in a traditional mimosa. Whether white or rosé, this sparking wine has all the qualities you look for: affordable, simple and accessible. And because many Proseccos DOC can be found in the extra dry and dry category, featuring a little bit of residual sugar, they pair perfectly with both sweet and salty dishes as complementary or contrary. Quite handy when you alternate between bacon and crêpes, sausage and fruit.

6 classics of the Prosecco DOC appellation to try 

When it comes time to picking the right bottle, you can always count on renowned estates like Bottega, La Marca, Ruffino and other producers that combine modern ways with traditional know-how. Guests will no doubt be delighted by any of these classic sparklers.

Thanks to their accessible price point, Proseccos DOC are an excellent choice for cocktails. For brunch, we recommend two very easy recipes made with only one alcohol—you guessed it, Prosecco DOC—to keep things light and fresh. The traditional and always-appreciated Mimosa, and the Bellini, a similar option but with peach purée. You can’t find more appropriate and delicious than that for afternoon sips.
