When we introduced you to dough, we started with our Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, found in your local restaurants and wine shops. Much like the foundation of a house, they are the building blocks of our brand and we’ve loved seeing how enthusiastic the response has been–from photos of holiday tables to takeout pairings to the ends of long Wednesdays.
But now we are ready to introduce something new, only available on doughwines.com : Our wines from some incredible appellations, available exclusively in three-pack sets to help you explore flavors. Just for you, for two, or a group (whatever that means in your part of the country) . For gifting, upgrading Tuesdays nights, and being a catalyst for great conversation. What does appellation wines mean? These wines come from specific AVAs. What’s an AVA? It’s a specific type of appellation of origin used on American wine labels – a delimited grape-growing region with specific geographic or climatic features that distinguish it from the surrounding regions and affect how grapes are grown.
This month we release our first wines available exclusively and directly to you in five curated wine sets each featuring three bottles. Spoiler alert: there will be four more curations and a few dazzling new wines in the New Year, but we are so excited by the wines Heidi Bridenhagen has crafted that we couldn’t wait!
Plus, in 2020, we all need a last minute gift idea that tastes good and does good.
Drumroll please . . .
Pinot Noir Pack: Pinot Noir is a grape revered by wine lovers, but also accessible for everyday drinking. Read: open these bottles right away and enjoy. This pack takes you on an exploration of the diversity of West Coast Pinot Noir with wines, hailing from some of the world’s most renowned growing regions for Pinot Noir: Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley in California and the Willamette Valley in Oregon. It is like a West Coast road trip in a box!
Chardonnay Pack: Take the roadtrip above and now do it in a convertible. The Pacific coast terroir brings so much elegance, depth and balance to Chardonnay and this pack takes you on a journey from the Sonoma Coast’s cool Russian River Valley all the way north to Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley.
Red Blend Pack: You knew we would throw in a dough pun somewhere. So for fans of dad jokes and good wine we present exciting Red Wine Blends in an ALL YOU KNEAD pack! Each bottle showcases a different style of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blends, letting one grape take the driver’s seat.
Napa Valley Pack: You see and hear the word Napa a lot when learning about wine. Time to use your vocabulary lesson from above and impress your friends and family by telling them that Napa is the best known AVA in California. This pack brings the storied terroir of Napa Valley to life with a crisp, balanced Chardonnay, a bold Cabernet Sauvignon and delicious Red Wine Blend for you to share, and pair. Let your palate escape to wine country, without leaving your couch.
Best of Napa Pack: “Best” can be an intimidating word, but these wines are anything but. Instead, by “best” we mean our ultimate red wine experience, showcasing some of the best California’s Napa Valley and Oakville AVAs. These bold Cabernet Sauvignons can be savored with a world of culinary delights. Or enjoyed as a delicious glass of wine solo.
Explore flavors, favorites or try something new with these specially curated wine sets! All wine sets are available in 3 bottles and will begin shipping on or around December 15, 2020. Perfect to be gifted to your friends and family, or even for your own “to be enjoyed list.”
