Artwine Prosecco Bianca 2021
Artwine Prosecco Bianca’s previous vintage was voted as one of the TOP 3 Australian Prosecco’s by Wine & Viticulture Journal 2020.
Artwine is the first Cellar Door in the Adelaide Hills to produce an estate grown Prosecco from their Woodside vineyard.
With origins in Northern Italy this sparkling variety has overtaken global sales of Champagne. A delicious light easy drinking sparkling variety for any time of the day. Floral and fruit on the nose continuing through to a delicious palate of fruit salad, citrus and grapefruit.
The Artwine Prosecco Bianca is a delicious, fruit forward yet dry sparkling wine, absolutely delicious!
Glen and Judy’s dream is to leave a legacy of one of the largest plantings of emerging varieties in Australia, all growing in beautifully managed, sustainable vineyards.
To achieve that dream, they continue to nurture the land, reinvesting heavily in sustainable practices—including a significant solar installation to reduce their carbon footprint—to protect the wine industry for future generations.
Artwine make over 17 different wines from 13 varieties, and there’s more to come! Across the Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley vineyards they grow:
– Albariño – Pinot Gris
– Cabernet Franc – Pinot Noir
– Fiano – Prosecco
– Graciano – Riesling
– Grenache – Tempranillo
– Grüner Veltliner – Viognier
They’ve most recently added to the collection with plantings of Grenache, Gris, Sangiovese, and Gamay, and have ordered 3 more varieties for planting in 2022.
When making the decision to plant a new variety, Judy and Glen have three questions they ask:
1. Do they want to drink this wine themselves?
They’re completely passionate about the wines they make, so it’s important that every variety planted makes a wine they’d want to drink too.
2. Can consumers pronounce the variety’s name?
We’re all about helping people learn about and enjoy emerging varieties, but if no one can pronounce the name, we’ll think twice about it.
3. Is the variety climatically suited to the Adelaide Hills or Clare Valley?
Sustainability is a key consideration with every variety we plant – it must be able to thrive naturally in our climate.

Growing areas for Australian Prosecco include the King Valley and north-eastern Victoria. This is largely due to the success of Italian immigrants in introducing Prosecco to the Australian market. Adelaide Hills has very few Prosecco plantations, and Artwine Prosecco Bianca is leading the charge for the region.
What does Prosecco taste like?
Prosecco is typically a light-bodied, aromatic, fruit-forward sparkling wine with vibrancy and a crisp finish. It has larger bubbles than fine champagne beads and can range from medium to high in acidity. Fruity flavours found in prosecco wine include green apple, pear, melon, peach, and honeysuckle.
