Move over Champagne! Mi Scusi Prosecco is coming through, taking centre stage and making no apologies for it. The cheeky sparkling is scooping medals up as it goes, recently winning a Gold medal as well as the title of ‘Victoria Prosecco of the Year’ at The Melbourne International Wine Competition.

Marketing Manager for Kollaras, Georgia Kollaras, who distribute the award-winning Prosecco, said to win both a gold medal and a Prosecco of the Year title was an exceptional achievement and demonstrated the high quality of Australian Prosecco.

“Prosecco is driving sales in a market that has traditionally been dominated by Champagne, and its affordability allows for it to be enjoyed regularly, whereas Champagne is seen as a more seasonal and celebratory occasion drink.”

Prosecco has well and truly delivered Champagne its marching orders with the category experiencing three consecutive years of growth close to 50% (ALSA State of Industry Report). It has increased its shelf presence too, with a 25% spike in the number of Prosecco items available in retail liquor over the past two years.

You can expect to see Prosecco muscle in on traditional Champagne territory more and more. With Spring Racing Season upon us, the Mi Scusi corks will be popping. Placed at an affordable $15.99 RRP, the ‘ Victoria Prosecco of the Year ‘ leaves more money in the kitty to spend on racing fashion.

Ms Kollaras explains The Mi Scusi design is inspired by the elegance of the art deco period that has been brought to the forefront with the recent revival of The Great Gatsby. A timeless, classic design, which is completely on trend with the Gatsby parties and get togethers that are so popular now.

“We’ve designed a Gatsby-inspired sparkling that embodies the pizazz and flair of the roaring twenties. We’ve channelled the uninhibited sentiment of the era and poured it into a bottle.”
