Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards Enters the Flavored Wine Market with Two New Exciting Wines: Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Mango


Hector, NY (May 6, 2024) – Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards is thrilled to unveil the much-anticipated arrival of two new wines: Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Mango. These exciting new flavors join the ever-popular wine, Bramble Berry, in building the company’s fruit flavored wine portfolio.

Following the wildly successful winemaking style of Bramble Berry, the Hazlitt family is excited to release these delicious, fruity wines. Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Mango are packed with sweet, refreshing flavors and are both 11% ABV. “Bramble Berry has been a customer favorite for over 20 years, right behind Red Cat,” said Brad Phillips, Director of Sales and Business Development at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. “It just made sense for us to expand on this style of wine, taking our native labrusca wines and blending them with complimentary, natural fruit flavors that customers can get excited about and love.”

Strawberry Watermelon is semi-sweet and offers the natural fruit flavors of freshly picked strawberries and ripe, juicy watermelon. Peach Mango, also semi-sweet, has a burst of natural fruit flavors, combining luscious, mouthwatering peach with rich, tropical mango. These vibrant wines are sure to brighten any day.

“It is important to us that we continue to be innovative and offer high-quality semi-sweet wines that are approachable and fun for our customers and wine enthusiasts to enjoy,” said Leigh Hazlitt Triner, Co-Owner at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. “Also, if you enjoy a quick and simple food pairing like Bramble Berry with chocolate, then you must try the Strawberry Watermelon with smoked almonds and the Peach Mango with cheddar cheese; both pairings are amazing!” 

Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Mango are available in 750ml and 1.5L bottle sizes, retailing at $10.99 and $18.49, respectively. These wines are available online at hazlitt1852.com and at both winery locations: Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards in Hector, NY, and Hazlitt Red Cat Cellars. They are sold in select New York State wine and liquor stores.
