New Zealand winemakers are about to plant the country’s first Glera vines that will go on to produce Prosecco in three years’ time. The Prosecco variety, otherwise known as Glera (to differentiate the grape from the protected Prosecco source in Italy’s Veneto), will be planted this spring in Gisborne, New Zealand, following the release of Prosecco vines from quarantine earlier this month.
