WHITE SPLASH by St. Francis Introduces New Packaging and National Launch

SONOMA, CA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) - WHITE SPLASH, a wine blend of four aromatic, flavorful white grape varieties, has announced the debut of its new packaging set to launch with the 2012 vintage. "We were inspired to have the new WHITE SPLASH packaging reflect the high quality wine the consumer is able to experience at such an affordable price point," says WHITE SPLASH Marketing Director Isabelle Catino.

After launching in key select markets in 2012, WHITE SPLASH is now nationally distributed and available at grocery and wine retailers across the country. 

Featuring Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Viognier, all the grape varieties in the blend are sourced from top growing regions throughout California. Each variety is fermented separately, then blended to achieve the wine's trademark luscious full body and sweet, ripe fruit flavors, with the blend changing slightly each vintage to highlight the finest varieties.

With bright, fruit-forward flavors and crisp acidity, this invigorating wine combines alluring aromas of Lychee fruit, jasmine and honeyed citrus with flavors of peach, honeydew, mango and green apple.

Great alone or with salads, seafood, chicken and Asian food, WHITE SPLASH is meant to be enjoyed with friends and family for any occasion.

Highlighting the versatility of WHITE SPLASH, our "Anything Goes" WHITE SPLASH Sangria recipe can be made year around to fit any type of cuisine.
