Prosecco: Quickly becoming today’s most rapidly growing sparkling wine, Prosecco is a refreshing and ingenious Italian sparkling that appeals to wine aficionados and novice drinkers alike. Voga’s Prosecco delivers the time-honored aspects of the unique varietal with a freshly adorned traditional bottle, re-designed to replicate Voga’s fashionable and trendy appeal. Made primarily in the district of Veneto near the town of Conegliano, Voga’s Prosecco is produced with an extended Charmat method, to improve its great perlage, and is refreshingly balanced with an explosion of citrusy fruit flavors.

Sparkling: VOGA Italia Sparkling’s golden color and fine effervescence give way to aromas of white blossoms and ripe fruit. Hailing from the Trentino region of Italy, VOGA Sparkling offers a smooth and balanced taste with a citrus finish. This 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Grigio blend is produced via a prolonged Charmat method to refine the perlage and fullness of the wine’s fruit flavorings. VOGA Sparkling wine is packaged in VOGA’s sexy, unique and award-winning bell-shaped bottle, with a screw on top to keep the wine gently sparkling. Also available in a mini-size for personal consumption!

VOGA believes the key to creating a true Italian Moscato is to capture the natural fruity aroma and vibrant flavor of the Moscato grape by quickly crushing and pressing the grape. During fermentation, the carbon dioxide is captured giving the wine its frizzante character. The fermentation is stopped early to enhance the grapes natural sugar and flavor intensity. VOGA Moscato wine is packaged in the award winning non-traditional 750ml cylindrical bottle, with resealable metallic gold cap.
