Posted on January 07, 2019

Guerneville, CA, January 7, 2019 – The season of romance is quickly approaching… and to truly show loved ones you care, you can’t just wing it! Korbel California Champagne today announced the release of its new, limited-edition “Lovebird” bottle wrap. Whether toasting a significant other or popping some bubbly with a group of friends, the feather-themed bottle is the perfect accessory or special gift to celebrate the season of love and friendship.

The Korbel Lovebird design has romance in the air, with vibrant shades of hot pink feathers floating around the bottle. Trendy and festive, the blushing design pops against a striking white capsule and front label, accented with a sophisticated silver trim. With Korbel’s award-winning California Brut Rosé inside the bottle (Double Gold Medal | 97 Rating, 2018 San Francisco International Wine Competition), this exclusive release is sure to sweeten up any special occasion this season. Pleasant and crisp, Korbel Brut Rosé offers bright flavors of strawberry, cherry and melon. As with all Korbel’s expressions, it’s made using the time-honored méthode champenoise.

The Lovebird feather design is suitable for everything from a weekend brunch to a casual dinner at home, or from a special romantic occasion to a spontaneous “just because” celebration.

Limited cases (6,500 9L cases) were produced of the special Lovebird bottle. The wrap is rolling out now in select markets with a suggested retail price of $13.99. Be sure to grab one of these exclusive romance bottles before they fly off the shelf!
