Summer is right around the corner, and though some of us may be socially distancing, that doesn’t mean we can’t bring a sparkle to each and every day. Mionetto Prosecco is the perfect way to make each day sparkle. Mionetto is one of the oldest wine producers in the Prosecco region, and their mantra is absolute freshness. It is the only Prosecco producer to bottle on-demand – as soon as an order comes in, and not a moment sooner.
Mionetto has a long rich history in the Prosecco region. It was founded in 1887 by winemaker Francesco Mionetto in Valdobbiadene, the heart of the Prosecco region. As one of the areaʼs oldest wine producers, Mionetto has long-standing relationships with vineyard partners, ensuring a consistent supply of quality grapes year after year.
Fun Facts To Know About Mionetto Prosecco

- Just like the grade of the wineryʼs rolling hills, the Mionetto label
is set at the same 27 degrees to honor its origins and history.
