Veuve du Vernay has unveiled an extension to its line in the new Sparkling Extra Dry.
An alternative to Prosecco, this launch was timed alongside National Prosecco Day, August 13. Veuve du Vernay Sparkling Extra Dry is the French counterpart, the company says.
“This sparkling wine is a complement to the Veuve du Vernay portfolio, adding an option for those Prosecco drinkers who are looking for a more fruit driven profile” says Carlos Varela, COO of BGPL USA.
Veuve du Vernay Sparkling Extra Dry is a Blanc de Blancs made from a selection of concentrated grapes. This proprietary blend gives the wine a floral and fruity nose with fresh brioche aromas, the company says.
Varela notes, “As more consumers are looking for options similar to Prosecco that match up to diverse cuisines, the Sparkling Extra Dry is a standout option that combines fruitiness and acidity for the ideal balance.”
The suggested retail price is $16.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
The Veuve du Vernay range is widely distributed in the U.S. Trade information is on RangeMe and a store locator on veuveduvernay.com.
