SPIRITS TO SALUTE AMERICA
Stella Rosa Ruby Rosé Grapefruit
On behalf of the Riboli Family of the 101+ year-old San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles, CA we are pleased to announce the launch of Stella Rosa Ruby Rosé Grapefruit–a wine that will transport you to the citrus groves of Italy!
Stella Rosa’s NEW Ruby Rosé Grapefruit plays upon that spend category trend coming in with an SRP of $8.95 per bottle. This blend of moscato, malvasia, and touch of barbera for color uses a proprietary technique to create a slightly sweet rosé that is bursting with grapefruit flavor! It also plays upon the low-AVB trend consumers are craving coming with an alcohol level of 5% and having a residual sugar of 6%–making it perfect for poolside nights or hot summer day drinking!
Woodford Reserve (created in Kentucky) (SRP $34.99)
Woodford Reserve is built around flavor. The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812.
