Flora is the Prosecco made by the family winery Col di Luna, in the pre-Dolimites of Vittorio Veneto. This a Brut Nature Prosecco, bone-dry, mountain flowers and honeysuckle mixed with wild tart apples. The crown cap closure is the best there is to keep the wine fresh and fizzy; it’s actually more ideal than the classic cage and cork. It is also quick to open and enjoy.
