Why do bubbles sometimes disappear quickly in the glass?

  • When bubbles disappear quickly, most of us would blame the quality of the wine.  In fact, this is one of the least likely explanations.


  • The most likely explantion is down to the glass.  The bubbles are only allowed to form due to characteristsc of the glass.


  • The Prosecco may be a Frizzante (lighly sparkling) rather than Spumante (fully sparkling)


  • Detergent kills bubbles.  Rinse, rinse and rinse again your glasses to remove all traces of soap.

  • Do not use fabric softener on your drying/polishing clothes.   It will kill your bubbles.  The softener on the cloth transfers to your glasses leaving a damaging surface which disperses the bubbles.  Read our blog to see how we found this out!

  • Bubbles are formed from tiny imperfections in the glass. Whether this is a spec of dust or an etch  in the glass. Intentional  imperfections are given to sparking wines glasses for this reason.  It's called a nucleation point.


  • If a glass was completely clean of imperfections, there would be no bubbles what so ever.

Does Prosecco age?

  • Prosecco deteriorates  with age.  Typically, Prosecco lasts about 3 years from the vintage (harvest) date.  After 3 years, the Prosecco starts to lose it's aroma and freshness.

  • The Glera grape, which is used to make Prosecco has a simple structure which does not lend itself to ageing.
