Casual vintage sparkling wine now available across the U.S. for everyday celebrations
NEW YORK (July 7, 2021) — Brazil’s Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé has arrived in the US just in time for summer, available for purchase via DTC and in select retailers as of last month. This refreshing and dry take on rosé expresses notes of berry and peach blending to create a truly unique sparkling that is matured for 12 months and made in the traditional Champenoise method. The Brazilian team behind this exciting new offering sought to produce a sparkling wine as versatile as the country itself to be enjoyed any time of day, helping to make summer moments even more memorable.
Produced in partnership with one of Brazil’s oldest wine-making houses, Casa Valduga, in Vale dos Vinhedos, or the Valley of Vineyards, Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé embodies generations of tradition, craftsmanship and innovation that has led the Valdugas to be distinguished as one of the most highly-regarded wine producers in the country– having also been granted a Gold award at the 2020 Vinalies Internationales in Paris.
“It’s an honor to work alongside Casa Valduga to produce a fresh and unexpected rosé that is equal parts casual and luxuriant for life’s everyday celebrations,” said Nick Walker, Dom Maria CEO. “Considering the skill, sophistication and culture that goes into our wine production, I find it surprising that so many people remain unaware of the delicious sparklings coming out of Brazil. My hope is that the Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé will play a part in changing that, while also providing an elegant and easy-drinking summer offering that can be enjoyed day or night.”
Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé is produced from the two grapes most commonly associated with the Champenoise method; Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%), fusing to create to a vinho that is not too sweet yet still citric, with a well-balanced bitter of berries that evolve in the mouth. With a light opening taste and a strong toast finish, the Pinot Noir also brings a softness to the sparkling.
Dom Maria Sparkling Rosé is currently available via DTC for just $30/bottle and $100/four-pack in 41 states, as well as in select retailers and restaurants in NY, with new on-premise partners in CT, NJ, MA, RI, FL, TX and CA to be announced throughout summer and fall. The brand’s previous offering, the Dom Maria Brazilian Brut ‘18, is also currently available for purchase, with only a few hundred bottles of the vintage remaining.
