Prosecco was once seen as a less than stellar substitution for champagne, but the bubbly drop has rocketed into the hearts of Aussies. There are numerous varieties on the market, and you don’t need to spend a fortune to find a delicious one to try at home. Made in Italy, the Freixenet prosecco ($25, pictured, from Dan Murphy’s) is a crisp and clean drop, with a light finish, hints of citrus and the right amount of bubbles. Housed in a striking bottle, it’s a top choice to take to a friend’s for a Sunday barbecue.
