3 Badge Beverage Corporation Debuts Cedar + Salmon

Posted on October 24, 2017

Sonoma, Calif., (Oct. 24, 2017) – 3 Badge Beverage Corporation has introduced Cedar + Salmon, a new line of wines from the Pacific Northwest that honor the spirit of the region and the distinctive character of its wines. Cedar + Salmon debuts this fall with a Willamette Valley Pinot Gris and a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir; and a Cedar + Salmon Cabernet Sauvignon from Horse Heaven Hills in Washington will be soon introduced, as well.

“The Pacific Northwest is a unique location and as such, we are proud to showcase its authenticity through a line of equally authentic wines, true to its history and unique terroir,” said August Sebastiani, president of 3 Badge Beverage Corporation. “The origins of the Pacific Northwest continuously focus on two of the most important and celebrated natural resources - cedar and salmon. We decided it was the perfect opportunity to incorporate both elements to appreciate the regions natural beauty as well as its cultural spirit.”

The inaugural releases from Cedar + Salmon include a 2016 Pinot Gris ($19) and 2016 Pinot Noir ($25). Both wines are 100% Willamette Valley fruit and come from top growers in the region. Gentle handling, minimal racking and other small-lot winemaking techniques are used for the Cedar + Salmon wines.

Cedar + Salmon will be available in select markets around the country from 3 Badge Enology. In addition to Cedar + Salmon, other 3 Badge Enology wines include Gehricke, Leese-Fitch, Plungerhead, Moobuzz and The White Knight.
