STACKED Wines Now Available At Bristol Farms Newest Concept in Wine Packaging Has Made Its Way into Leading Southern California Grocery Retailer
LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- STACKED Wines is excited to announce their newest retailer, Bristol Farms, the upscale California grocer known for providing the finest assortment of specialty products and natural foods. STACKED Wines is the sleek and practical "four pack" of stem-less wine glasses that vertically stack to form the equivalent of one full bottle of wine.
STACKED Wines will be sold in all twelve southern California locations of privately-owned Bristol Farms (Hollywood, La Jolla, Long Beach, Manhattan Beach, Newport, Palm Desert, Pasadena, Rolling Hills Estates, Westchester, West Hollywood, Westlake Village and Westwood).
The award-winning product is packaged in recyclable material made from the company's proprietary technology, Vinoware™ – a container that emulates the look and feel of a wine glass coupled with the durability of plastic. Each single-serve container is sealed with a foil top to maintain the freshness of the quality wine inside. The glasses stack neatly for easy storage, cooling and transport.
"STACKED Wines distribution in Bristol Farms is a natural fit for both Southern California companies based on the retail chain's locality and stellar reputation," says Jodi Wynn, VP of Marketing, "Our concept has the wine community buzzing and Bristol Farms is the perfect place to showcase the product."
The premium wines are refreshing, fruit forward, and reflect the true flavor profiles for each varietal. The Chardonnay embodies soft citrus notes with a hint of oak, the Merlot boasts a bright red plum flavor with traces of vanilla, and the Pinot Grigio is carefully crafted to offer a delicate yet whimsical taste. All three varietals appeal to the broad tastes of wine lovers of all levels of sophistication. The individually packaged glasses are the perfectly portable and outdoor-friendly solution for on-the-go wine lovers.
STACKED Wines shipped into southern California Bristol Farms store locations in July 2012 retailing for an introductory price of $10.99 a bottle. For more information or to purchase STACKED Wines online, please visit www.stackedwines.com.
About STACKED Wines
The idea was conceived as Matt Zimmer, creator and packaging engineer, drank a stale glass of wine from a bottle that had been opened just a few nights before. He knew he could invent a better packaging solution that added a portability factor combined with a stylish design. Zimmer started sketching and STACKED Wines was born. He succeeded in creating a 100% recyclable packaging that not only preserves wine longer but allows wine drinkers to enjoy single serve glasses at home or on the go! STACKED Wines, LLC was developed when Zimmer teamed up with fellow MBA students Jodi Wynn and Doug Allan at the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine. Since 2011, STACKED Wines has redefined both wine packaging and the consumption experience. Today, the innovative company offers wine for simple style, top quality taste and ultra convenience.
