Mommy’s Time Out Wine, the perfect stocking stuffer for the Holidays

East Hanover, NJ, 2020-Dec-7 — /EPR RETAIL NEWS/ — Mommy’s Time Out Wine is the perfect stocking stuffer, and can be enjoyed by just about anyone on your adult stocking stuffer list. Mommy’s Time Out features four varieties including Mommy’s Time Out Pinot Grigio, Mommy’s Time Out Moscato, Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Red, and Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Pink. All are made from grapes grown in Italy and have wonderful fruity undertones. All the wines are fresh, fruity and well balanced, and are delicious for sipping with snacks or to complement a meal.

Being at Home during the Holidays has changed. Hasn’t it? It used to be the place where we all relaxed after a hard day at work. Not now. We may be home monitoring the virtual learning of our children. We might be working longer hours, because work is now remote, and we still have to monitor the virtual learning of our children. We might have to make them lunch because our kitchen is now the school cafeteria. The producers of Mommy’s Time Out Wine understand and have offered the following thoughts to make the holidays the most enjoyable time of the year.

Keep the Holiday’s Simple; Celebrate at Home with Mommy’s Time Out wine. Being a parent is difficult enough. Make Some Memories that will Last a Lifetime. New Year’s Day is a great day to make some family memories. Try taking a family photo with someone holding up a sign with the year. It’s also a great day to measure everyone against the door jam, so they can look back at their growth in years to come. Remind each other and your children of all the good things that happened, and teach your family how to appreciate what they have. One way to do this is to ask each family member to write down three things they were thankful for in 2020 and share them over dinner during the Holidays or on New Year’s Eve.

“No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to being a Mommy, it’s one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs there is. That’s why we believe Mommy deserves something special for herself now and then, with Mommy’s Time Out Wine.” says Mike Cincotta President of Selective Wine Estates, Inc.

Adults over the age of 21 should enjoy Mommy’s Time Out responsibly.

Meijer reveals 2017 Thanksgiving Day picks for wine and beer from vineyards and breweries across the Midwest

Meijer reveals 2017 Thanksgiving Day picks for wine and beer from vineyards and breweries across the Midwest

 

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., 2017-Nov-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Historically, Meijer sells nearly 10 million bottles of wine and beer during Thanksgiving week, according to the Meijer beer and wine buyers. If you are looking for guidance and open to adding a local selection, the buyers have released their 2017 Thanksgiving Day picks that herald from vineyards and breweries across the Midwest.

2017 Local Wine Recommendations

According to wines.com, Thanksgiving is the one day of the year when wine is most likely to appear on American dinner tables. Turkey is one of the most versatile meats that can be paired with many types of wine. White wines and delicate reds complement white meat, while a bold red pairs nicely with dark meat. The pairing process gets complicated when you consider side dishes and desserts. Here are our wine buyers top local vintage picks by state that range from dry to sweet:

  • Michigan: From Chateau Grand Traverse, they prefer Mich Mash White Blend; Mich Mash Red Blend; and Mich Mash Riesling.
  • Wisconsin: From Door Peninsula Winery, they recommend Door County Blackberry Merlot; from WollerSheimWinery, its Prairie Fume; and from Cedar Creek Winery, its Cranberry Blush.
  • Illinois: From Illinois Cellars, they recommend Velvet Red; from Lynfred Winery, the top pick is Lynfred Cranberry; and from St. James Winery, its St. James Blackberry.
  • Indiana: From Oliver Winery & Vineyards, they prefer Oliver Riesling; from Mallow Run Winery its Rhubarb; from Easley Winery, the top choice is Jubilee Cranberry and from Huber Winery its Sweet Marcella.
  • Ohio: From Mon Ami Winery, they recommend Pink Catawba, Catawba White, and Concord; from The Winery at Versailles, its Rodeo Red; and from Vinoklet Winery its La Dolce Vita.
  • Kentucky: From Stonebrook Winery, they recommend Blackberry; and from Old 502 Winery, the top choice is Kentucky Lady.

2017 Local Beer Recommendations

For those looking to buck tradition, consider featuring some local brews at your Thanksgiving celebration. According to the Meijer beer buyers, the effervescence in beer cleanses the palate, which based on all of the textures and flavors offered in a Thanksgiving meal, drinking beer allows you to fully experience the flavors of each dish. During dinner, consider sticking with a pale ale or a session IPA.

  • Pale Ales: New Glarus Moon Man from Wisconsin; Lagunitas Little Sumpin Sumpin from Illinois/California; and Rhinegeist Crash from Ohio.
  • Session IPAs: Founders All Day IPA and Perrin No Problems, both from Michigan.

When it comes to dessert, the Meijer beer buyers suggest adding something a little more complex depending on the dessert, or try a cider, especially when enjoying apple pie.

  • Pumpkin Pie: Atwater Vanilla Java Porter; Bell’s Christmas Ale; and Vander Mill Totally Roasted, all of which are Michigan brews, and Great Lakes Christmas ale from Ohio.
  • Chocolate Cake: Founders Backwoods Bastard; New Holland Dragon’s Milk or The Poet; and Rochester Mills Milkshake Stout, all of which are Michigan brews. Kentucky Ale’s Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout, from Kentucky and Sun King Wee Mac from Indiana.
  • Apple Pie: Blake’s Wake Fire Cider from Michigan; and Redd’s Blueberry Ale from Wisconsin.

Co-op research reveals the average Brit now spends £19 on wine EVERY week

MANCHESTER, England, 2016-Aug-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Brits are a nation of self-proclaimed “wine buffs” – with 88 per cent now claiming to be a true aficionado of vino, according to new research.

New research by Co-op has revealed 38 percent now believe they know their Sangiovese from their Syrah, going so far as to declare themselves “extremely knowledgeable” about wine.

And according to the study, the average Brit now spends £19 on wine EVERY week (£988 a year) – and is prepared to pay up to £11 pounds on a decent bottle.

However, almost half (41 percent) admitted they spend more on a bottle to take to a friend’s house in a bid to impress them with their wine knowledge.

Co-op has seen demand for fine wines surge in the last year, with sales of top claret Chateau Senejac soaring by 45%* on a like for like basis. Champagne has also seen a similar trend, with sales of Co-op’s own-label bottle increasing by 36% in the last 12 months.

When asked which countries produce the best wine – 33 percent of Brits still think the French make the best, followed by Italy (13 percent), Australia (13 percent) and Spain (8 percent).

The report also showed that 30 percent of Brits try to impress friends with their wine knowledge, with 7 out of 10 of those polled saying they are more interested in the subject now than they were 10 years ago.

Wine buyer for Co-op, Ben Cahill said:
“The survey has produced some really interesting insights into how we’ve become more interested in wine as a nation.”

“We’re certainly seeing this in store as shoppers take more time to choose their wine purchases, with price not always being the top factor. Instead where the wine comes from, quality, grape varieties and label design are just as important.”

“Figures show that more wine aficionados are making the switch to Co-op for their purchases than ever before, with figures highlighting that we are the top destination for last minute purchases – thanks to an increased availability of high-end wines and the introduction of more diverse and interesting bottles from some of the best winemakers from across the world.”

34 percent of people say their love of wine started after trying new wines on holiday, while nearly a third (27 percent) learnt from friends – and a further 21 percent say they have learnt about wines from TV cooking shows.

Over a quarter (28 percent) say they have bought an expensive bottle of wine to impress other guests at a dinner party, while 25 percent admit they have researched the wine they are serving to friends in a bid to impress.

Ben continued:
“Our love for good food has made wine pairing a crucial element of dinner party planning – especially if you want to impress, so it’s unsurprising Brits are embracing the concept of quality wines.” Meanwhile an unashamed one in ten Brits (11 percent) say they drink wine to look more sophisticated than they actually are.

Londoners are most likely to consider themselves wine buffs (32 percent), followed by the people of Birmingham (27 percent), Edinburgh (27 percent) and Leeds (26 percent).

Liverpudlians are the least likely to consider themselves knowledgeable about vino with just 18 percent describing themselves as wine lovers.

51 percent of Brits determine a good wine by the country of origin, while 45 percent of us judge the quality of wine by the price.

Sainsbury’s launches dedicated Rosé Report to uncork the realities of rosé wine

LONDON, 2016-May-26 — /EPR Retail News/ — As summer approaches, the trend for lighter-coloured ‘posh pink’ – influenced by celeb-endorsed launches from the likes of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore – will see rosé wine sales soar, with Sainsbury’s research showing a trend among millenials towards aspirational ‘posh pink’.

Selling around 15 million bottles of rosé every year, Sainsbury’s is launching a dedicated Rosé Report to uncork the realities of rosé wine – who is buying it, when and why?

Elizabeth Newman, Head of Beers, Wines & Spirits at Sainsbury’s, notes: “It’s the perfect time for Sainsbury’s to launch this exciting report. Rosé Uncorked shows that consumer habits are constantly changing in the world of wine. It’s particularly interesting to see that younger consumers are opting for lighter-coloured rosé and I think the glamour, associated with the paler pink ‘celebrity choice’ styles, has certainly boosted this trend”.

Rosé Uncorked is packed full of fascinating insights into the nation’s favourite pink drink:

  • Over 15 million bottles of rosé are sold every year at Sainsbury’s (Nectar*)… enough to fill 8,800 hot tubs
  • 1 in 10 bottles of still wine sold in Sainsbury’s is now a rosé
  • Sainsbury’s sells a range of more than 50 still rosé wines, and this is set to rise
  • One in three people prefer drinking lighter-coloured rosé in the summer (YouGov)
  • More than a quarter of 18-24 year olds stated that they’d be more likely to serve a lighter-coloured rosé wine than a darker one to guests (YouGov)

The report dives into shoppers’ baskets to find out what the nation is buying with rosé wine, revealing some surprising cross-purchases (a pair of shorts with your Californian White Zinfandel, madam?), and wine expert Joe Wadsack blind tastes some of the top sellers and reveals his favourites in the report.

National Rosé Day is celebrated across the UK on 12th June 2016, for more of Sainsbury’s rosé range, visit Sainsburys.co.uk.

Winecrasher.com launches revolutionary best value wine club

Napa, California, 2016-May-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — Winecrasher.com, announced today the launch of a new wine club based on the company’s unique “Crash Pricing” concept – which guarantees the best prices for critically rated wine.

In Winecrasher’s innovative concept, which was inspired by Hotwire/Priceline, the customer is shown all the info about a wine (rating, varietal, region and vintage) but the company only reveals the wine label and name of the winery after the purchase is complete. This discrete discount model allows Winecrasher to offer the greatest discounts on wines while protecting winery brands.

Winecrasher is extending this concept to it’s newly launched wine clubs which will offer customers a monthly subscription, for either three (3) or six (6) bottles of critically rated wines.

Each of the wine clubs is guaranteed the following:

  • The best price in the US market for each bottle
  • Each bottle sold has been critically rated by either Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Antonio
    Galloni’s Vinous or Burghound.
  • Free California shipping and only $9.99 shipping nationwide (excluding UT, MA, PA, AK and HI)
  • Super easy cancellation – just send an email

In addition, Winecrasher will offer a premium experience through its personally tailored wine club for anyone who wants to customize their selection.

“We wanted to create a club where people can try new wines, without preconceived notions, while learning about new regions. With the guarantee that they’re getting the best value,” said Winecrasher’s Co-Founder and Wine Director, Nancy O’Connell. Nancy, who will manage and select the club’s wine portfolio, also mentioned that “While we choose the wines based on our own impressions, sourcing only critically rated wine allows the added assurance that the customers receive a product of verifiable quality.”

“This wine club concept ties in to the whole philosophy of Winecrasher,” said Winecrasher’s Founder, Niv Nissenson. “We feel that people are tired of wine clubs that market obscure wines or put high markups on the bottles sold. We think that wine consumers are equally dissatisfied with clubs that make it very easy to join but difficult to unsubscribe. At Winecrasher we aspire to create a wine club where the best price is guaranteed, every wine is rated and it’s very easy to cancel”

Winecrasher’s wine club can be accessed in the following link:http://www.winecrasher.com/Wine- Club_c_61.html

Maison Krug launches its latest creation—Krug 2002

PARIS, 2016-Mar-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Maison Krug has introduced its latest creation, Krug 2002, a vintage cellared for 14 years.  This long maturation symbolizes the excellence of a vintage champagne aptly named “An Ode to Nature”.

Just as Krug 1988 was released after the 1989 vintage, the release of Krug 2002 was preceded by that of the 2003 vintage. This inverted chronology reflects Krug’s singular approach to crafting its champagnes. The vintage champagne – what Joseph Krug called a cuvée “according to circumstances”— expresses the music of a particular year and the distinctive character that defines it. The vintage champagne is always a unique creation. This is why the champagne house scrupulously respects the intrinsic qualities of each cuvée, in this case not hesitating to hold back the release of Krug 2002 to let it mature longer in the cellar.

Named “An Ode to Nature” by Krug Cellar Master Eric Lebel, the 2002 vintage is the fruit of a remarkably atypical and generous year, offering a wonderful balance between maturity and freshness. The 2002 harvest proved one of the warmest in Champagne, living up to the rich promise of beautifully ripened grapes. Nothing can be determined in advance, however, and only time can confirm how a vintage develops. Indeed, it has taken 14 years for this cuvée to express its full potential and essence.

Vintage champagnes are distinguished from Krug Grande Cuvée, the signature expression of the House created each year since its founding. Krug Grande Cuvée is composed of over 120 wines from more than ten different years, resulting in an extremely rich assemblage. Each Krug Grande Cuvée must be cellared for at least seven years. The champagne created from the 2002 harvest is the 158th edition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

Proposed together in a single, numbered limited edition, 158th Krug Grande Cuvée and Krug 2002 are two distinctive expressions of a truly exceptional year.

Maison Krug has long taken an exceptional approach in exploring the links between its champagnes and music, including the Krug en Capitale IV event. To offer a unique way of tasting champagne that connects tastes and sounds, Krug works with musicians in every genre. To express the notes of  Krug 2002 and Krug Grande Cuvée 158th edition, the House has partnered with jazz singer Gregory Porter.

Alcohol abuse is harmful to health. Please drink responsibly.
