Wente Family Estates Announces the Nationwide Launch of Its Newest Wine Brand, Double Decker

2 May, 2012




Livermore, CA -Wente Family Estates is pleased to announce the nationwide launch of its newest wine brand, Double Decker. Featuring three easy-to-sip varietals, Red Blend, Pinot Grigio and Zinfandel, Double Decker wines are crafted to pair perfectly with the adventures of your life.

Double Decker Red Blend is a fruit-forward blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Barbera that is robust, yet smooth, with flavors of black cherry and plum – perfect for barbeques or dinners in. The refreshing Double Decker Pinot Grigio has flavors of crisp green apple and citrus – ideal for summer picnics or a day at the beach. The spicy Double Decker Zinfandel has a long, fruity finish and pairs well with pasta night or dinner with friends.

Artfully crafted by Fifth Generation Winemaker Karl D. Wente, all three Double Decker varietals are priced at $9.99 and continue to build upon the Wente family’s 129 year legacy of delivering top quality wines at great value.

“I’m fortunate to work with a great array of varietals and in the case of Double Decker Red Blend, I really enjoy the challenge of crafting a delicious focused blended wine,” said Karl Wente.  “Together with the Zinfandel and Pinot Grigio, I call these my porch wines, a perfect way to start the evening with friends, and hope our consumers will as well.”
