    I went out and found this. What a great recommendation. I am going back to get a couple of bottles of this.

    • Thanks. I am so glad you liked it. Happy Easter.

    What a great recommendation. I was having trouble deciding what to get. Thanks for make it easier for me.

  • I wish I’d read this before Easter! We went with an overpriced recommendation that wasn’t nearly as good as the reasonably priced standby.  I’m definitely going to try this for Mother’s Day (because that’s certainly a day that deserves a good wine).

    • I have been there. I think you will enjoy this particular sparking wine. Let me know how it goes when you do.

    It sounds like it might be nice with Mother’s Day approaching I am looking for a nice wine to have with lunch

    • It is. It would be awesome for Mother’s Day. 🙂

    I, too, wish I would have read this before Easter.  Sounds delish!  But Mother’s Day would be a perfect opportunity to give it a whirl.  Thanks, as always, for your insight!

    • It is really yummy! If you give it a try let me know. 🙂

    Thanks for this tip Susan, I’m eager to try this as I’m always a big fan of a nice prosecco. I also read your more recent article on champagne and greatly enjoyed it. I’m always a little bit hesitant to buy champagne as I know very little about it, so all tips are helpful. I’m happily pinning these two posts to my wine board.

    • Hi Debra, Thank you so much. Either one are good choices and well worth a try. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Italian sparking wine. Good choice for someone as an alternative to champagne. Personally get a headache from all sparkling wines apart from champagne, unfortunately. But for those of you who don’t, try prosecco.

    • Indeed that is true Catarina. Headaches aside, it certainly is at a reasonable price to make it much more affordable for those who have a great many celebrations to host and attend. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Sounds like a good excuse to visit Italy. 🙂

  • We used to drink Chianti Ruffino for years and I quite enjoyed it. I haven’t tried the Prosecco from Ruffino, but am glad for the recommendation as I love Prosecco! It is indeed a perfect holiday wine. Cheers to you, Susan!

    • Hi Doreen, Ruffino wines rarely will disappoint. I hope you’ll give this one and try. When you do let me know what you think. Happy Holidays my friend. 🙂

  • Susan — this has become really popular in my circle of friends. I served Prosecco at two holiday parties I hosted this season.

    • That is so cool Jeannette. It just goes to show how great minds do think alike. Have an awesome holiday my friend. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I’ll have to keep my eye out for this one next week when I pick something up for New Year’s.

    • It’s a very nice sparkling wine Jeri. I do think you’ll enjoy it. 🙂

    Markets where you can find a dedicated person to help make buying decisions like that are starting to make a comeback in Michigan. At least in my area anyway.

    Wines can be so confusing at times it is helpful to have someone who knows the ones offered.

    • That’s cool. I love that I have these individuals to bounce stuff off of. It really makes my decisions about which wine/year/vintage to buy much easier Jon. 🙂

  • I like the sound of Ruffino Prosecco Susan.

    I’d not heard of it before but it would a great drink to serve over the holiday season!

    I might just have to take a trip to the wine merchants down the road today :-).

    • I do think you’ll enjoy this wine Tim. Let me know what you think when you try it. Have an awesome holiday with your family:-)

    I’m a big fan of prosecco, drinking it in the summer and at new years. I don’t believe I’ve tried the Ruffino, but I will put it on my list for future reference. 🙂

    • Of all the many Porseccos available, Ruffino is my favorite Debra. I do hope you try it. When you do, let me know how it compares to the others you enjoy. 🙂

    I like prosecco as much as I like an arugala salad with a vinegarette dressing. it’s smooth for a bubbly and a little bitter upon finishing. I would rate it very highly for the Prosecco connoisseur and on the lower scale for the average person
