Wine Spotlight: Ménage à Trois Prosecco

 

 

Here at Ménage à Trois, we know a thing or two about living la dolce vita, but we’ve always admired how the Italians do it with such effortless style. Made in Italy, our vivacious Prosecco has an irrepressible, exuberant personality that sweeps you off your feet. One sip, and you can imagine yourself tossing coins into the Trevi Fountain, smiling at the paparazzi, or climbing onto the back of a Vespa piloted by a flirtatious stranger. It’s a fantasy come true!

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.

 

 

About Brandi Glanville
Brandi Glanville is one of television’s most recognizable personalities, a bestselling author, actress, model and fashion designer. Glanville is known to millions of fans as the sassy and outspoken star of the mega-hit reality series “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

Company Spotlight: Oak Bottle – Infuses wine & spirits with oaky flavors quickly

 

 

No more bulky Barrels

The oak barrel is considered the most traditional oak infuser but it can be bulky and awkward to handle. The Oak Bottle puts the infuser in the palm of your hand.

 

Get rid of the complicated spirals

Oak spirals overcomplicate the oak infusion process and they displace valuable volume. The Oak Bottle is simple, fast, and effective.

 

Avoid messy oak chips

Oak chips leave residue and sediment in the wine or spirit and they are difficult to remove. The Oak Bottle will not leave behind residue.

 

Oak flavor in just 24 to 48 hours

A typical oaking process can take months to years for full oak infusion. The Oak bottle infuses the same amount of flavor in 24-48 hrs.

 

Simply pour and serve

Whether you are an experienced wine or spirit maker, just starting out, or wanting to improve a bought wine or spirit. The Oak Bottle makes your ordinary extraordinary.

 

 

 

 

 

About the company:

Many winemakers believe that what makes a truly great wine great is more a matter of what occurs in the vineyard than what happens inside the winery or distillery. We agree, the winemaker or distiller can only highlight flavors and aromas that already exist, not invent flavor. That is what the art of oaking is all about. For centuries, winemakers and distillers have used oak to bring out the best in wine and spirits. The biggest problem aside from the cost of oak barrels is the amount of time it takes for the oaking process to work. This is where the Oak Bottle® comes in. Using a simple volume to surface area equation it's easy to understand how a vessel with more surface area touching less volume can infuse the wine or spirit quicker. Our goal is to make the oak infusion process simple, fast, and cost effective so that just about anyone can become a winemaster from the comfort of their own home. Read More

Packaging Spotlight: Rose Flamingo Wine

 

 

 

Designed by
By Patrick Seymour and Waldemar Art

 

 

 

Brief
The idea to create a beverage with the image of flamingo was born a long, long time ago. Flamingo is very graceful, beautiful and lightsome bird, and I was looking for a visual character… I wanted to create such illustration, which could transfuse all those qualities and this is the moment when the Adobe Illustrator showed up – with its’ splash screen of the lions’ picture. It came to me in a flash: flamingo should be in this kind of style! I decided to write to Mr. Patrick Seymour and to suggest him a partnership, which he accepted.

In order to emphasize the shapeliness of the flamingo, I decided to add the element on the bottle – symbol, reminding the leg of flamingo. Design of bottle is original, unique, unusual and it underlines lightness and gracefulness of flamingo.

About the Company
My name is Ryan Harms, and I founded Union Wine Company.

I moved to Oregon in 2001 and embraced wholeheartedly the region’s unique spirit and passion for craftsmanship, finally deciding in 2005 to satisfy that entrepreneurial bug that had been nagging me to start something that I could be proud of.

I’ve worked for some great Oregon wineries throughout my career. In so many cases, my friends wanted to support us, but simply couldn’t afford to. I decided that I wasn’t going to accept that wine made in Oregon had to be expensive. So, Union is about creating something that I can share with friends and family and make accessible, without sacrificing quality.. Read More
