Pine Ridge Unveils New Design and Image for ForeFront Wines

Napa, CA-  Pine Ridge Vineyards revealed today a new design for ForeFront by Pine Ridge, its companion brand featuring innovative, open-sourced vineyard and varietal blends. The new look is boldly modern with a sophisticated edge to match the fine wines.

Rooted in tradition but forward thinking, the ForeFront brand takes a modern and adventurous approach to winemaking, crafting wines of exceptional quality and distinctive style.  ForeFront wines are unique blends sourced from a variety of exceptional appellations throughout California and Oregon.  Contemporary winemaking techniques are employed with the goal of creating luscious, approachable, and intriguing wines. The brand also experiments with unusual varietal blending, such as including a

dose of richly textured Syrah in its Cabernet Sauvignon. Open sourcing makes it possible to harness the diverse flavors found throughout California’s varied appellations at price points that appeal to wine lovers at any budget.

Pine Ridge maintains the same standards for excellence in its ForeFront wines as it does in its higher-tiered estate wines.  The new ForeFront iconic logo alludes to the brand philosophy of combining the best fruit, regardless of appellation. The new package will appear on the recently released 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2010 Pinot Noir.

Pine Ridge produces wines that have a distinguished reputation for capturing the unique qualities of their corresponding appellations within the Napa Valley. ForeFront builds on this tradition, extending the range of possibilities to Sonoma County, the Willamette Valley, Lake County, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. Since its founding in 1978, the winery has committed to produce quality wines with forward-thinking techniques—hence the name ForeFront.
