Woodbridge launches 7% ABV wine soda brand

Constellation Brands’ Woodbridge has debuted a wine soda it describes as “a first-of-its-kind wine experience” in the US which has a 7% ABV.

The 250-milliliter wine Soda combines white wine with classic soda flavors like lemon lime, orange, and grapefruit and will be available this month on Drizly, InstaCart, and at retailers nationwide that sell Woodbridge.

The company said someone looking for wine might be more inclined to drink the Woodbridge brand if they can pick up a convenient six-pack of its Wine Soda from the store and crack open the can, bypassing the process of purchasing a bottle, uncorking it, and pouring it in a glass.

White and Red Dow’s Vale do Bomfim wines from Symington Family Estates

Symington Family Estates, producer of some of the finest Ports in the world for five generations, has launched Dow’s 2021 Vale do Bomfim DOC Douro White to compliment Vale do Bomfim Red as the first line extension.

The white wine is a blend of indigenous grape varieties including 45% Malvasia Fina, 25% Rabigato, 10% Viosinho, 10% Arinto, and 10% field blend.

As with the Vale do Bomfim White, Dow’s Vale do Bomfim Red is sourced from the same vineyard in the Douro Valley that makes Dow’s acclaimed Vintage Port, Quinta do Bomfim.

The grape variety mix is: 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz, 20% Touriga Franca and 10% Tinta Barroca.

The updated packaging on both Dow’s 2021 Vale do Bomfim DOC Douro White and Dow’s 2020 Vale do Bomfim DOC Douro Red features large family photos from the 1930s depicting second-generation Symington family members and friends with their automobile.

The new label also features a nod to the family making the same momentous journey from Porto to their estate, Quinta do Bomfim in the Douro Valley for over a century.

The white and Red Dow’s Vale do Bomfim retail for SRP US$15 and can be purchased at any convenient wine store, globally.
