So, what do you do when you are in the middle of a pandemic and you can’t find what you like to drink? You make it! That’s what Francis Gorrell and Robin Brown did. They wanted a quality low-alcohol, low-calorie, refreshing, dry drink with just the right bubble texture. The result is VinH2O Dry Rosé Wine Spritzer.
The difference between just anyone trying to create a product and a brand and these two savvy women is their street creds. Gorrell is a Level 2 Certified Sommelier and Brown is a Level 3 Wine & Spirits Trust Educator and French wine scholar. They know what they’re doing.
VinH2O punches all the right buttons for today’s knowledgeable wine drinkers. It is vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and delicious! The perfect sparkle enhances the flavor of the Rosé without overpowering it.
“We wanted to find a Northwest wine and decided on a Washington Rosé with intense citrus and fruit notes, so once it is blended with water the flavors still shine through,” says Brown.
“The market is filled with canned mixed wine and juice spritzers that land with sweetness on the palate but we both enjoy a lighter, dry version like what you drink in Provence or a dry Schorle in Germany,” explained Gorrell.
This light, crisp, spritzer is bottled in recyclable, BPA-free glass to help preserve the environment. It imparts the bright flavor of the fruit without any added juice.
The lesson here? When a pandemic strikes, strike back and create a product that fills a void.
