Italian wine and grape guide : Glera


Glera is the white variety grape that produces the Prosecco.

The Glera grape was, until Prosecco became a DOCG wine, called Prosecco, named after the village of Prosecco near Trieste from which the grape may have originated.

However, from 2009, the year in which Prosecco became a DOCG wine, to protect its name and therefore prevent wines made with the Prosecco grapes grown outside the DOC/DOCG area labelled as Prosecco, Glera has become the new name of the Prosecco grape.
