Posted on June 06, 2017

Castello del Poggio, five year consecutive Hot Brand Award Winner, is proud to announce the launch of its expanded product portfolio of sweet wines. The winery’s flagship wine, Moscato IGT has enjoyed great success on the U.S. market, as the #1 selling Italian Moscato in national retail chains. The wine’s success inspired the winery to introduce a broader range of wines, complete with a fresh look and taste.

In addition to the Moscato IGT, Castello del Poggio will now offer a Sweet Red, Sweet Rosé, Prosecco DOC and Sparkling Moscato. The expanded portfolio will be introduced to the market through the series of launch events to be held in 20+ cities across the U.S., with the largest experiential event in New York City on June 7th at Manhattan Penthouse on 5th and a special event at the Aspen Classic on June 16th. The launch is supported by an experiential, nationwide marketing campaign in print, digital and broadcast, the largest marketing initiative Zonin USA, Inc. has undertaken for a single brand in its portfolio.

“We are excited to continue and expand upon the success of Castello del Poggio. Our Moscato IGT has hit a sweet spot with U.S. consumers and paved the way for the introduction of new line extensions of the Hello Sweet Life brand,” says Zonin USA, Inc. Executive Vice President – General Manager, Tim Matz. “There is a definite surge of consumer interest in sweeter wines, and our new portfolio provides consumers with more options to suit their palates.”

Castello del Poggio was recently ranked in Shanken’s Impact Newsletter as one of its “Hot Brands’ for the fifth year in a row. Impact’s “Hot Brands’ recognizes the most dynamic brands from the wine, spirits and beer industries, selected on the basis of strict growth and volume criteria.

The new Castello del Poggio Hello Sweet Life range is now available nationwide and is on track to become a million case brand, supported by expansions into growing categories like sweet red and rosé.
