The Vanderpump family — led by businesswoman and TV star Lisa Vanderpump — has introduced two new wines from Sonoma County to their Vanderpump Wines collection.
Vanderpump Chardonnay is made from 100% estate-grown grapes from Sonoma Coast AVA. With aromas of lemon citrus and pear, lined with floral notes and hints of brioche and toast, the company says, the wine undergoes lees contact and spends 11 months resting in 100% French oak, to produce a medium-bodied chardonnay.
Vanderpump Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux-inspired cabernet made from grapes grown in Sonoma Valley AVA and Alexander Valley AVA. Ruby red in color, this wine has flavors of dark fruit and wild berries, the company reports. Production includes hand sorting and extended skin contact, coupled with 18 months aging in 100% French oak.
The wines’ packaging features the Vanderpump crest with its trademark rose detail and the Vanderpump family signature in raised-gold print. The grape variety and region are displayed on the front label to facilitate consumer identification.
Vanderpump Chardonnay ($21.99) and Vanderpump Cabernet Sauvignon ($26.99) are currently rolling out nationwide. These two new offerings join Vanderpump Rosé, produced in the Côtes de Provence AOP, which launched in 2017 and has since grown rapidly, earning a Growth Brands award in 2020.
Both wines come out in collaboration with the U.S. wine and spirits importer Palm Bay International.
