LO CA Chardonnay and Malbec Launch in U.S.


Low-Calorie, Low-Alcohol, Low-Sugar and USDA-Certified Organic

Miami, FL, May 8, 2023 — Origins Organic Imports has introduced the debut 2022-vintage LO CA Chardonnay and LO CA Malbec. Line-priced at $14, Argentina’s first USDA-certified organic and low-calorie, low-alcohol, low-sugar wines are also Regenerative Organic Certified™, Ecocert-approved, vegan and gluten-free. LO CA100% Chardonnay and 100% Malbec number among the few such wines worldwide to sport this wide-ranging set of credentials.

Now available in CA, CT, DC, DE, IN, NJ, NY, MA, MD, MI, OR, RI and WA, LO CA Chardonnay and Malbec are set to roll out in several additional markets over the next few months.

At around 30% fewer calories than a standard wine, calories per 5 oz. serving are 75 for LO CA Chardonnay, 79 for the Malbec. Alcohol is 9% for the Chardonnay and 9.5% for the Malbec. Both have around 1 gram of residual sugar. Though fermented dry, the wines are refreshing but not searingly puckery, due to the sandy soil on which the grapes are grown, leading to enhanced polyphenols that yield a sensation of sweetness without being sweet. Grapes are grown at an altitude of 4,000 feet in the high-altitude Tupungato subregion of Mendoza’s Uco Valley.

Though there are lower alcohol wines out in the market, according to Origins Organic co-owner Labid al Ameri, “The decision was to go for a great-tasting no-compromises wine, rather than the lowest caloric number, with grapes ripe enough to provide full flavor and sufficient alcohol for body and structure. That the two wines are also USDA-certified organic, a rarity, is another benefit for consumers in the exploding lo-cal category.”

The LO CA white, with its citrus and concentrated green apple notes, is a classic cool-climate style Chardonnay. Deep violet in color, the LO CA Malbec has intense aromas of red and black fruits.
