Rack & Riddle Custom Wine Services Announces New Sparkling Wine Private Label Blends

Apr 12, 2012

 Rack & Riddle Custom Wine Services, one of the nation's largest winemaking operations specializing in sparkling wine, has rolled out five new private label sparkling wines.

The non-vintage Brut, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blancs, Brut Rose, and Moscato varietals are crafted in the traditional French method and are sourced from select North Coast and Sonoma County grapes. "Smooth and refreshing, these sparkling wines pair well with every food, and have an enduring shelf life," said Rack & Riddle Director of Winemaking, Penny Gadd-Coster. "They're perfect for everyday consumption as well as special occasions."

Rack & Riddle found its niche as one of the few winemaking facilities in the nation specializing in methode champenoise sparkling wines, and consistently garners Gold and Best of Class honors in major wine competitions throughout the United States.

"Rack & Riddle's private label sparkling program unlocks the ability for wineries, restaurants, retailers or even individuals to create their own branded sparkling wine blend, without the overhead and investment in expensive production equipment and processes," said Gadd-Coster, who was named "Winemaker of the Year" of the Napa and Sonoma wine region in the inaugural Wine Industry Awards.

Sparkling wines are driving the growth of the U.S. wine market, enticing more businesses to offer a branded bubbly to their customers. Worldwide, sparkling wine consumption is projected to rise 8.52 percent between 2012 and 2016 due to demand in the top four sparkling wine markets: the United States, Germany, France, and Russia, according to the International Wine and Spirit Research (IWSR) consultancy.

"A private label sparkling wine allows businesses to tap into new brand concepts," said Rack & Riddle General Manager Mark Garaventa. "Whether it's a restaurant offering customizable private labels for weddings, a store offering a special blend for a rewards program, or a winery's holiday-themed label -- the possibilities for branding are endless."
