New Limited-Edition Release Joins Korbel’s Lineup of Acclaimed Bottle Wraps Just in Time for Mardi Gras
GUERNEVILLE, Calif. (January 23, 2018) – Korbel California Champagne is toasting the spirit of New Orleans with the release of its limited-edition bottle wrap commemorating the city’s 300 Year Anniversary. Featuring a festive design of colorful beads and its popular California Extra Dry champagne, the highly-exclusive bottle release is a true celebration of the rich tradition and culture of New Orleans.
300 years old never looked better, with vibrant green and gold beads draped around the bottle, popping against a royal purple background. A metallic gold anniversary seal is prominently displayed above the renowned Korbel logo. Topped with a crisp white capsule, the striking bottle is a standout on the shelf and the perfect accompaniment to Mardi Gras festivities this year.
Along with a celebratory look, the design reflects the award-winning California champagne inside the bottle. Korbel Extra Dry is light and luscious with delightful flavors of bright citrus and vanilla. In addition, the balanced fruit-forward style of Extra Dry makes it the perfect cocktail companion, excellent for topping off traditional New Orleans-style cocktails. As with all of Korbel’s expressions, it’s made using the time-honored méthode champenoise.
And what else makes it so special? This limited-production bottle (3,000 9L cases) is exclusively available at select retail locations in Louisiana for a suggested retail price of $13.99. For a limited-time, the bottle can also be found at the Korbel Wine Shop as well as its web store online at www.korbel.com.
