Review of Zonin Dress Code Collection Prosecco + cocktail recipes


Zonin1821 is the largest privately held wine company and owns the largest Prosecco vineyards in Italy. Zonin Prosecco is a made from the Prosecco grape native to the Veneto region in Italy. Like their name, they have been vintners since 1821 – seven generations – which means from the soil, vines, grapes, to winemaking is part of this family’s DNA.

Zonin ‘Dress Code’ Collection Prosecco launched nationwide in February 2016, a refined extension of the classic Zonin Prosecco. The collection offers three unique tasting profiles. They can be enjoyed on their own or as a mixer for cocktails (see recipes below).


Zonin Prosecco White Edition ($16.99) is made with 91% Glera and 9% Pinot Bianco. Tasting notes: crisp and aromatic; floral and tropical fruit notes on the palate. Pairs well with spicy entrees, light dishes, or shellfish. This prosecco is my favorite of the collection along with the recipe below!

Zonin Prosecco Grey Edition ($16.99) is made with 87% Glera and 13% Pinot Grigio. Tasting notes: smooth; earthy and light apple on the front and light ginger finish. Pairs well with charcuterie, cheese boards, and light seafood dishes.
