Tasting Notes

Bisson's dry sparkler is finely balanced, with green apple and floral aromas dominating the complex, heady mix. Chiseled mineral acidity demands a thoughtful pairing with light salads, youthful cheeses and salty, smoked fish. If you enjoy Prosecco, this is essentially what this bottle is as it's made from the Prosecco grape, Glera. However, this is a bone dry rendition of the sparkling wine and very unique for that matter. Sealed with a crown cap and in 2016 this practice no longer allowed for the wine to be labeled as Prosecco all the while listing the grape Glera.

Staff Pick Notes

Pierluigi Lugano is the soul behind Bisson in Liguria. His sparkling wine is technically a prosecco but does not adhere to the outdated, restraining laws of the Prosecco DOC. Pierluigi Lugano is a renegade, a rebel. He is not pushed around by labeling laws instead he seals his bubbly with a crown and forgoes the name "prosecco" on his label, like a badass. This bubbly tastes like the reprieve from thick summer air, when it's a little more comfortable to breath. Filling your lungs with star jasmine wafting in the salt-crusted air. Juicey green pear jam spread on thick cut, golden brown sourdough.

Astor's Glossary of Terms


Until recently, "Prosecco" could refer either to a wine or to a white grape. In 2009, however, the grape was renamed "Glera" in a bid to protect Prosecco's good name. Prosecco is usually a sparkling wine made by the Charmat method, though still versions do exist. Because it is so easy to drink, with or without food, Prosecco is a hugely popular choice for parties.
