Top 6 Prosecco Vans in the UK
A summer’s day. A chilled glass of prosecco. It just works, doesn’t it? In case you need convincing, we’ve done some digging on everyone’s favourite party grape and some of the best prosecco vans available right now to hire for your event.
Named after the tiny Italian village where the grape was first grown, prosecco has been refreshing guests since Roman times (the wife of Emperor Augustus was a big fan).
Sadly for the Italians, they couldn’t keep it a secret for long and now it’s us Brits who are reaping the rewards. Whether it’s weddings, birthdays, festivals or even house parties - outside of Italy we drink more fizz than any other country in the world! With so much demand it’s no surprise that some amazing prosecco vans have sprung up in the last few years to help us get our fix when we’re out and about.
Here’s something you may not know - prosecco can only be called 'prosecco' if ‘it is produced with the Glera grape and is served from a glass bottle with a volume of no more than 3 litres’. What that means is most of the time ‘prosecco’ from a tap is technically ‘spumante’ (fully sparkling wine) or ‘frizzante’ (semi sparkling), which are also from the Glera grape. Confused yet?
Fortunately, for all of us who love a drop of bubbly and aren't too fussed about the details, it’s now easier than ever to hire a prosecco van for your event. To help inspire you we’ve put together six of the best prosecco vans out there who can be hired to bring a real wow factor to your party.
Prosecco Pronto - Wales
Hailing from Wales but with Italian roots, Prosecco Pronto are a family run business boasting an authentic three wheeled Piaggio Ape van and the best 100% glera frizzante from Venezia.
Tom, the founder, spent his childhood in Italy near the village of Prosecco racing Piaggio Ape vans around his uncle’s farm. Now based in Newport, he wanted to combine his passion for the country with his professional experience in catering and events.
As well as their signature bubbles they serve a range of cocktails which can be tailored to your guests. They also have two top-of-the-range mobile bars with filament lights hanging down available to rent.View More

The Prosecco Van by the Bubble Bros - South East
In a previous life, Ben and Joe (the Bubble Bros) worked long hours together in a London advertising agency. Since 2015 they have travelled across the UK with their converted three wheeled Piaggio Ape bringing bubbles and good times to parties, weddings, festivals and other private events.
In addition to their rustic-themed prosecco wagon they also boast the world’s first motorbike and sidecar mobile bar. The 1969 bike is fully road legal (assuming the prosecco hasn’t started flowing yet) and the sidecar has been converted into a sparkling wine bar serving ice cold bubbly on tap, straight from the barrel and chilled to perfection. It’s a fantastic alternative if space at your event is at a premium.View More
