The Story Behind The La Marca Hugo

Straight from Treviso, Italy, a historic winemaking region located one hour outside Venice, La Marca Prosecco began crafting its exceptional wines 55 years ago. Today, the brand’s reputation and iconic blue label have helped make it one of America’s most loved sparkling wines. Produced with grapes from 5,000 small vineyards throughout the Prosecco DOC, La Marca’s flagship wine features pronounced aromatics of bright citrus and honeysuckle blossom, with green apple and ripe peach on the palate that makes it an excellent addition to elevated sparkling cocktails.

Along with La Marca’s lively effervescence and crisp finish, the Prosecco shines as the base in a wide range of cocktails, including The Hugo, a refreshing Northern Italian summertime staple and sessionable twist on the Venetian Spritz.

Whether you’re hosting an outdoor summer soirée for close friends or toasting one of life’s joyful moments big or small, La Marca Prosecco is sure to make any get-together feel like a celebration.
