Bagrationi Brings First Georgian Sparkling Rouge to US Market

Sparkling Red Wine Available for Valentine's Day Celebrations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 8, 2012) - Bagrationi 1882 Winery, the country of Georgia's premier sparkling wine producer, announces the launch of the Bagrationi 1882 Rouge sparkling wine in the US market just in time for Valentine's Day. Bagrationi's Rouge is now available nationally online and on premise in the Washington D.C., Boston, and San Francisco markets. This is the first and only Georgian sparkling red wine to be distributed in the United States.

From the world's oldest wine-growing region known to be the "cradle" of wine, the Bagrationi 1882 Rouge (SRP $14.99) makes the perfect gift alternative to typical red roses this Valentine's Day. Its crisp acidity and refreshing bubbles make it a delightful aperitif, while the deliciously fruity aroma of berries and rich mouth-feel can stand up to a box of Valentine's Day chocolates. The Rouge is made from the famous Saperavi grape varietal which is indigenous to the wine region around Georgia and Caucuses mountains.

Bagrationi 1882 Rouge joins Bagrationi's other hand-crafted sparkling wines available in the US market -- the 2007 Royal Cuvee (SRP $34.99), 2007 Reserve Brut (SRP $21.99), Classic Brut (SRP $11.99), and Classic Extra Dry (SRP $11.99). These sparkling wines are sourced from Georgia's unique grape varietals and produced by the classic Method Champenois and Method Charmant. With over 7,000 years of winemaking traditions, the Caucuses mountain and Black Sea region around Georgia is located at the same latitude as many of the world's greatest wine regions such as Southern France, Northern Spain, and Central Italy. Bagrationi 1882 wines make exotic and sexy gift alternatives or affordable daily indulgences.
