Ménage à Trois, one of the top selling super premium wine brands in America, announced today that it has been named the official wine sponsor of the 2015 San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade, with the theme – “Equality without Exception”. The annual two-day celebration features a massive colorful parade through downtown San Francisco, 2 days of festivities with 23 community entertainment stages and over 300 exhibitors. This year’s Market Street parade begins on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. from Beale to 8th street. The celebration and festival takes place at Civic Center Plaza on Saturday, June 27 from noon – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 28 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Approximately 1.2 Million people are expected to attend the weekend’s events.

The Ménage à Trois “Love the One You’re With” campaign will be prominent throughout the parade and the wine will be available at the wine and beer garden at San Francisco’s Civic Center Park. “We are excited to be a part of this legendary event. As a company that has been in the Bay area for over 65 years – and brand that was built by taking a risk – we think this is the perfect pairing.” Mark Dunlea, Ménage à Trois’ Marketing Director noted, “We are looking forward to participating in the parade and celebrating equality without exception in the city that helped establish it.”
