Packaging Spotlight: Lazur Wine

 

 

Designed by
Reynolds and Reyner
Kiev, Ukraine

 

 

Brief

Lazur sparkling wine is made mingling selected wine materials produced in Italy. The brand’s name traces its Italian roots being associated with the Cote d’Azur (the Russian for «Azur» is «Lazurnyi»), relaxation and holidays, the Riviera, coasts and beaches, and the sea of course. The very idea is also used in its packaging where the label resembles a sea navigation compass creating the adventurous and pleasant atmosphere.

We examined various elements of Italian heraldry and created the coat of arms showing lions, knight helmets, ribbons, crosses and even a five-pointed star each having its original meaning and background. Additionally to the bottle and outer box we designed an exclusive set which consist of a wine cooler and six irregular-shaped champagne glasses that symbolize ship sails floating through the waves to meet the unknown.

Beer Spotlight: New Belgium Blackberry Barley Wine

 

 

The darker the berry, the sweeter the barley wine—that’s what we thought when brewing the first barley wine in New Belgium history. Blackberry Barley Wine channels the elegant spirit of a classic English barley wine, but with a kiss of blackberry to elevate the sip beyond convention.

A deep wash of caramelized sugar and toasted bread, courtesy of Caramel Munich malts, adopts subtle laces of floral fruit for a pairing as proper as sipping snifters beside a crackling fireplace. Make this winter berry delicious with a warming, rich pour of Blackberry Barley Wine.

 

 

  • ABV 10%
  • IBU 50
  • Yeast: Ale Yeast
  • Hops: Nugget

About the company

We'll set the scene.

1989. Belgium. Boy on bike. (Ok, make that a young man of 32.)

As our aspiring young homebrewer rides his mountain bike with "fat tires" through European villages famous for beer, New Belgium Brewing Company was but a glimmer in his eye. Or basement. For Jeff Lebesch would return to Fort Collins with an imagination full of recipes and a handful of ingredients ready to embark on a whole new journey.

And then there was beer.

Jeff's first two basement-brewed creations? A brown dubbel with earthy undertones named Abbey and a remarkably well-balanced amber he named Fat Tire. To say the rest was history would be to overlook his wife's involvement. Kim Jordan was New Belgium's first bottler, sales rep, distributor, marketer and financial planner.

And now, she's our CEO.

Wine Spotlight: Ménage à Trois Silk

 

 

Smooth talking is something we do rather well here at Ménage à Trois — especially when it comes to wine. So indulge us for a moment, and close your eyes. Now imagine the exquisitely soft, smooth sensation of silk as it slides across your skin. Gives you chills, doesn’t it? With this in mind, we wanted to create a wine that was seductive and soft, a wine with a texture so lustrous and smooth, it could only be called—what else?—Silk. Brimming with alluring aromas, full-bodied, bright red fruit flavors, and a marvelously smooth mouthfeel, Silk exposes the softer side of Ménage à Trois.

 

 

Wine Detail:

• Alcohol: 13.70% v/v
• TA: 0.53 g/100ml
• PH: 3.56
• RS: 1.35 g/100ml

Vineyard and Winemaking

Once upon a time, men traveled thousands of miles over land and sea for the Orient's most prized treasure: silk. Its delicate, exotic texture was so desirable, silk literally changed the world. Fortunately, our winemakers didn’t have to travel far in their quest for silk; instead, they found the treasure they sought in marine-influenced vineyards in California’s Central Coast, North Coast and Lodi-Delta appellations: Pinot Noir with seamless cherry flavors, Malbec with velvety softness and Petite Sirah with alluring depth.

Dreaming of liquid silk, they assembled their blend, and used unique fermentation methods to craft a delicately textured, ultra-smooth wine with supple tannins. Grapes were cold soaked, then gently pressed to silky perfection. To further illuminate the wine’s unique texture and flavors, the blend was enhanced with a hint of sweet, spicy French and American oak. The result? The smoothest, softest, silkiest wine you’ve ever tasted. You’d travel thousands of miles for just one sip, but lucky for you, you don’t have to.

 

 

Tasting Notes

Lose yourself in the sensual pleasures of Ménage à Trois Silk—a smooth, seductive red blend that caresses you with every sip. With its bright, red ruby hue in the glass and alluring fragrance of dried violets and berries, Silk beckons, promising an unforgettable experience. Succulent cherry and ripe raspberry flavors mingle with delicate hints of rose petals and toasty spice, and glide gracefully across your palate like liquid silk. Seamless and lustrous, Silk is the lavish, luxurious encounter you’ve been craving.

Made in Italy, our vivacious Prosecco has an irrepressible, exuberant personality that sweeps you off your feet.

Vineyard and Winemaking

Our winemakers grabbed their passports and jetted off to Italy to create our delightful DOC Prosecco. Short for Denominazione di Origine Controllata, DOC is Italy’s official designation of origin, awarded only to the highest quality wines produced in a designated region using specified methods. Made with 100% Glera grapes using the traditional Charmat method, our sparkling wine is ultra-fresh and fruity, best enjoyed young. With delicate aromas, bright, bubbly flavors and a crisp finish, we think you’ll agree that Ménage à Trois Prosecco is a world-class wine—and a world-class flirt.

Tasting Notes

Pop the cork and enjoy a fling with a fresh Italian—Ménage à Trois Prosecco, that is! This spectacular sparkler is fabulously flirtatious and fun-loving from the first sip to the last. In the glass, delicate bubbles rise to the surface and tickle your nose, releasing a seductive floral fragrance. Refreshing citrus and bright green apple flavors dance across your palate in a burst of effervescent bliss that leads to a crisp, clean finish. Sip a glass with a fresh fruit tart, or share a bottle with someone special under the sparkling stars.

Wine Spotlight: Ménage à Trois Midnight

 

 

At Ménage à Trois, we’re not shy or inhibited; in fact, we’re known for creating wines that are bold and sensual—even a tad risqué. For our exciting limited-release red wine blend, we pushed the boundaries even further. Midnight represents the dark side of Ménage à Trois—it’s our most intense expression yet, a passionate red blend bursting with dusky aromas, an extraordinarily deep color, and rich, ripe black fruit. Don’t be shy—turn out the lights and savor the pleasures of the dark.

 

Wine Detail:

• Alcohol: 13.65% v/v
• TA: 0.58 g/100ml
• PH: 3.59
• RS: 0.8 g/100ml

 

 

Vineyard and Winemaking

Our winemakers are definitely not afraid of the dark. For this special wine, they wanted to create a truly uninhibited red blend— something deeper, darker, and bolder than ever before. In true Ménage à Trois style, they decided that ‘more is more,’ and crafted a blend of not three—but four—grapes! Merlot adds a plush, velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance and power, Petite Sirah lends inky intensity and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors the wine is aged in French and American oak. The result is a dark red blend that leaves an indelible impression. It’s mysterious and dark, soft and sensual—just like Midnight.

 

 

Tasting Notes

The time has come to explore your deepest, darkest desires with Ménage à Trois Midnight. A gorgeous garnet color in the glass, this luxurious red wine blend wraps you up in a velvety embrace. Voluptuous blackberry and plush spiced plum flavors seduce your palate, while hints of mocha and exotic spice linger on your lips like a stolen kiss. Silky and smooth with a long, powerful finish, you’ll wish Midnight could last forever.

Wine Spotlight: Brandi Glanville Debuts Chardonnay In Partnership With Rippey Wine Company This Summer

 

 

Los Angeles, CA — Model turned reality star and personality, Brandi Glanville, has joined the beverage industry with the release of her first wine “Unfiltered Blonde”. The 2013 Unfiltered Blonde Chardonnay exudes the same bold and sassy personality as the popular television star with hints of spicy vanilla and oak, crisp apples and sweet melon. Alongside her partners Tyson and Jenni Rippey of the Rippey Wine Company, Brandi was highly involved in the creation of the Chardonnay from flavor to artwork with the goal of creating a quality wine for consumers at an affordable price.

“I am so proud and thrilled to finally be able to share Unfiltered Blonde with consumers,” explains Brandi Glanville. “The entire process has taken over a year to perfect but it was definitely worth the wait. Having the opportunity to create something that I truly love is a dream and to be able to share it with the world is even better.”

The grapes used for this 100% Chardonnay blend were handpicked and whole-cluster pressed from select vineyards in Sonoma County and one vineyard in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley. The Sonoma County fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the varietal characteristics while the Yountville portion was fermented in French oak barrels to give the wine a rich mouth feel and a kiss of oak.

Unfiltered Blonde boasts of bright aromas of pear and apple mingled with sweet and toasty vanilla. The palate is bright with succulent fruit flavors and oak notes. A perfect balance of smooth and creamy texture and crisp acidity provide for a lengthy finish. This versatile Chardonnay pairs well with poultry, seafood, white meats and dishes with cream sauces.
