Share This Unusual Rose with Mom for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is just a week away and I’m sharing with you something very special that arrived at my door recently. If your mom or any special mom in your life is a wine lover she’ll love this unusual rose.
This wine bottle is the most beautiful bottle I’ve ever seen. You can just look at it and tell that a lot of thought and planning went into designing the bottle.
Michael Mondavi Family Estate (MMFE), a collection of family-owned wines based in Napa, launched their 2016 Isabel Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon (SRP $20). Released under the Isabel Mondavi brand, the wine is a family affair with vintner Dina Mondavi, Michael and Isabel Mondavi’s daughter, spearheading the new offering.
“We wanted to create a wine that captured my mom’s style: casual, elegant and sophisticated,” says Dina Mondavi. “A wine that was remarkably food-friendly and versatile, which is why we focused on a style with bright acidity and fresh fruit flavors.”
What started as a “just few cases of rosé for mom,” quickly became an entirely new venture for Michael Mondavi Family Estate. A true family affair, the packaging and brand vision is directed by Isabel’s daughter, Dina; winemaking is directed by Isabel’s son, Rob Mondavi Jr.
The screen-printed label pays tribute to the family heritage, reflecting the floral filigree pattern of an heirloom bracelet. “The glass stopper is great because it allows drinkers to easily re-seal the bottle without any risk of cork taint,” comments Dina Mondavi. “We love this rosé with a variety of cuisines from New American to spicy Thai, which makes it the perfect bottle to have on hand.”
Isabel Rosé will be distributed nationally, represented in the U.S. by Folio Fine Wine Partners, based in Napa, Calif. For a complete list of wines produced by Michael Mondavi Family Estate, please visit michaelmondavifamilyestate.com.
