TORONTO, June 4 /CNW/ -
In a world where individual style speaks volumes before you've spoken a
single word, your taste in wine can tell a story. Strut wines invite you to
express yourself and your unique good taste by accentuating your style from
the bottle up. Launching June 1 exclusively at Wine Rack Stores across Ontario
(visit www.winerack.com for store locations), Strut wines are available in
four distinct "personalities" of boldly elegant, fruit forward playful wines,
including Chardonista (Chardonnay), Well Heeled White (a white blend of
Riesling and Gewurztraminer), Cab Couture (a red blend of Cabernet Franc,
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) and Red Over Heels (Merlot). VQA certified,
Niagara grown and made with an appeal to the fun, youthful, female wine
drinker, Strut wines are priced at $11.95 and feature spontaneity-inspired
screw-cap closures and fashion-focused packaging.
Your style speaks to you, it speaks for you , it reflects your moods,
modes and methods. From playful to commanding, sweet to serious, your style
expresses who you are today and who you'll be tomorrow.
Enter Strut, a new wine concept that celebrates a fresh crush of stylish
wine lovers that accentuates individuality and fun. Just in time for summer
frocks and fêtes, the Strut collection of wines are making their debut with
four distinct wines in the lineup.
With the goal of enhancing personal flair and creating delicious
scenarios, the four wine "personalities" are: Chardonista (Chardonnay), Well
Heeled White (a white blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer), Cab Couture (a
red blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) and Red Over Heels
(Merlot). Priced at $11.95 with a picnic, party, catwalk, sidewalk friendly
screw-cap closure, Strut wines suggest stylish, approachable spontaneity.
"Today, the essence of one's personal style transcends all aspects of
life," offers Casey Howe, the Marketing Manager for Strut Wines." With an eye
to targeting the female millennial and Y generations (twenty- to thirty
somethings) who grew up with "Sex and the City" and In-Style magazine as
lifestyle inspiration, Strut celebrates confidence and style, and hits the
mark where quality and personality meet."
Strut wines are chic and self-assured and can be poured with the
confidence that accompanies VQA certification. Strut wines are made with
talent and passion from 100% local grapes from the Niagara Peninsula terroir.
Available exclusively at Wine Rack, look for the Strut "legs" packaging to
catch your eye and captivate your palate.
Look for Strut in Hello Magazine this summer and seek out opportunities
to make the city your own personal catwalk with impromptu "Strut your Stuff"
events at locations across Toronto in June and July, where you get an
opportunity to try a FREE BOTTLE of Strut wines. Hint: think weekend vibe on
stylish street corners (see bottom of release for complete details).
