    GUERNEVILLE, Calif, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Glasses of Korbel Brut Rose
  Champagne will be raised in celebration when Mark Dale and Sarah Raley tie
 the knot live on NBC's Today Show September 16th.  A tradition at celebrations
 large and small, Korbel Brut Rose will be poured both before and after the
     "The Today Show Throws a Hometown Wedding" is one of the venerable morning
 show's most popular annual events.  Viewers vote to select various wedding
 elements and the Today Show creates the wedding as only the Today Show can.
 This year, Maryland couple Mark and Sarah want to be married by the water, and
 Today Show viewers chose the beautiful and romantic Chesapeake Bay Beach Club
 near Annapolis to be the site of the couple's nuptials.  From long experience,
 the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club knows how to make a wedding special, and it
 selected Korbel Brut Rose Champagne to serve at the pre-wedding toast and at
 the reception.
     Produced with premium California grapes, Korbel Brut Rose showcases the
 superb quality of time-honored methode champenoise (in which the bubbles are
 created by secondary fermentation in the bottle) in its delicate rose hue,
 generous fruit character and fine, persistent bubbles. Korbel Brut Rose has
 been recognized for excellence with Sparkling Sweepstakes Award at the 2005
 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Gold and Best of Class at the 2005
 Los Angeles County Fair, and Double Gold and Best of Class (tie) at the 2005
 California State Fair.
