Costco's Giant Bottle Of Prosecco Is Turning Heads

Costco's liquor section has grown famous for its great deals (which you might not even need a Costco membership to take advantage of) and growing list of quality Kirkland-brand products. Case in point: There's a brand-new Kirkland Signature Asolo Prosecco on offer at the wholesale store, spotted by Instagrammer @costco_empties. If you're wondering what makes this launch noteworthy, take another look at the box: This Prosecco is being sold in 3-liter bottles. In other words, one of these bottles contains the same amount of Prosecco as four 750-millileter bottles!

So, you're probably wondering, how much is one of these bottles going to cost? According to Delish, Costco is only charging about $10 per liter (or $29.99 for each 3-liter bottle), which certainly isn't bad when it comes to Prosecco. However, before you rush out to your local Costco to stock up on Prosecco for the holiday season, it's worth noting that this seems to be a limited release. In fact, according to some Instagram comments, the Kirkland Signature Asolo Prosecco might be more than a little tricky to track down.

Why you might have trouble finding Costco's new giant Prosecco bottles

Amid the excitement over this almost comically large bottle of Prosecco on @costco_empties' original Instagram post was a commenter stating "Says only avail in CA... on my MI Costco app." In fact, the Costco website also lists the Kirkland Signature Asolo Prosecco as being "CA Only." (And the price seems to be going up as of this writing.) However, @costco_empties replied to this comment with "I'm in NJ and it's definitely here!" Others were quick to respond with their own experience looking for the new Prosecco, some mentioning that it wasn't yet available in Tampa, Florida, or Raleigh, North Carolina, while another user was able to find it stocked in Hawaii. It seems that, at least for now, the only way to be sure of whether this new product is available at your local Costco store may be to check in person. 

If you do manage to track down this elusive Prosecco, you'll want the massive bottle to stay bubbly to the last drop. (Otherwise, what's the point?) To achieve that, it's worth using some of the money you saved on booze to invest in a champagne stopper, according to Food & Wine. Also, try to keep the bottle cold, either in the fridge or a sink full of ice, since this will also help to preserve the fizz (via Business Insider).
