Friday, August 13th is National Prosecco Day, and to celebrate the sparkling white wine from Italy, we’ve compiled some great San Diego spots to sip and enjoy!

Not only does Metlbar Creamery & Cafe have Cavicchoioli 1928 Prosecco, by the glass or bottle, and Josh Cellars Prosecco Rose, but the one-of-a-kind North Park spot is working on aNegroni Gelato Prosecco Float for their Metl After Dark menu. Known for their boozy ice cream treats, this is one delicious creation you won’t want to miss out on! Keep an eye out on their social media page for updates on when you can stop by to try it for yourself.

Farmer’s Bottega, tucked away in Mission Hills, boasts a menu of fresh and sustainable local ingredients, as well as craft cocktails, draft beers, and wine. Request a table on their patio and toast to National Prosecco Day with a glass of Bottega Gold, a fresh, crisp, and elegant prosecco with scents of golden apple, pear, acacia flowers and lily of the valley. We recommend enjoying with the burrata appetizer, comprised of prosciutto di parma, cherry tomato, artichokes hearts, fig jam, and balsamic-white wine.

Stop in to Duck Dive, found steps from the sand in Pacific Beach, for a glass or bottle of Josh Cellars Prosecco, crafted for everyday celebrations, but especially delicious on National Prosecco Day! Wine experts recommend seafood as an excellent Prosecco pairing, and Duck Dive has a variety of delicious options. You’re sure to love the Grilled Fresh Fish, a fresh catch served with jasmine rice, white wine lemon caper sauce, grilled market vegetables, and shaved fennel salad.

Cork & Knife, a boutique wine shop with locations in Escondido and Rancho Santa Fe, offers close to 100 different types of vino, including Prosecco Tasi. Very rarely does prosecco stop you in your tracks, but with bold notes of gardenia, lychee, ripe mango, and pineapple, the Prosecco Tasi is likely one of the most alluring, most expressive Proseccos you’ll find. You can purchase a bottle online or in-store, or pair with a delicious cheese, small plate, or meat and cheese board.

Operacaffe is an inviting restaurant in the Gaslamp District serving authentic, award-winning Italian cuisine. The history and experiences make Operacaffe the perfect restaurant for an authentic Italian experience. Start with a glass or bottle of Drusian Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, a great sip to enjoy alongside any of Operacaffe’s beloved pasta dishes. From the Farfalle Campagnola to the Penne Portofino, you truly can’t go wrong with any pasta dish you choose!

Why not celebrate National Prosecco Day at San Diego’s favorite breakfast joint, Breakfast Republic?! Each of the eight San Diego locations offers Breakfast Republic Prosecco, an all-natural Prosecco specially imported from Domus Vini, a family owned and operated vineyard in Verona, Italy that has specialized in making Prosecco for over 400 years. Available to sip by the glass or bottle,  this refreshing DOC Prosecco is light straw hold, soft and bright on the palate, loaded with green apple, pear, brioche toast and roasted almonds.
