Delicato Earth Wise Vineyards Red Wine Blend
Just ahead of Earth Day 2017, Manteca, Calif.-based winemaker Delicato Family Vineyards is introducing its Earth Wise Vineyards Red Wine Blend, the family-run firm's first 3-liter bag-in-box wine made from organically grown grapes from Spain. The blend is certified organic by the California Certiﬁed Organic Farmers (CCOF). The new product's grapes come from organic vineyards primarily in Spain's La Mancha region. Delicato's first release of the Earth Wise Vineyards Red Blend, a 2015 vintage, is touted as "a soft and fruit forward blend of Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha Tintorera." The Earth Wise Vineyards package prominently features the CCOF label and other iconography to signal its environmentally sustainable and organic status. Likewise, the Earth Wise Vineyards package is 100 percent recyclable, with a box made from 95 percent recycled, unbleached, post-consumer ﬁber with a BPS and BPA-free Mylar bag, and it's bonded with cornstarch instead of glue. Bag-in-box technology is known to keep wine fresh for up to 30 days once opened. SRP is $24.99 for a 3-liter package.
