    LAKE BLUFF, Ill., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Terlato Wines International
 continues to pioneer new categories with the release of two new innovative
 California blends that speak to today's informed and engaged wine consumer.
 Created to provide an approachable introduction to the sophisticated art of
 blending and to complement the move toward light, fresh and healthier
 cuisine, the vibrant Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends, one white and one
 red, are each composed of seven carefully selected varietals that
 complement each other to produce a blend much greater than the sum of its
     "Today's wine consumers are curious and engaged. They are interested in
 learning more about grape varietals, the process involved in winemaking,
 the aromas and flavors that result from blending wines, and now, they want
 to know what's next," said William Terlato, President and CEO of Terlato
 Wines International. "We created Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends to
 provide wine drinkers with a way to experience the art of blending, in a
 unique package that balances sophistication with fun."
     Seven Daughters White Winemaker's Blend is composed of seven distinct
 varietals including Riesling, Symphony, Chardonnay, Orange Muscat,
 Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and French Colombard. Sultry scents of
 orange blossom, musk and melon hint at a palate with the fresh flavors of
 lychee and tangerine. Full-bodied and alluring, the wine finishes with a
 satisfying spicy note.
     Complete with seven different grapes, Seven Daughters Red Winemaker's
 Blend is a sophisticated melange of Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Carignane,
 Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet displays
 blackberry and pepper, supported by subtle notes of lavender and vanilla.
 After an exuberant palate of red fruit, including dried cherries, the wine
 finishes with a touch of spice.
     Both blends take cues from today's hottest culinary trends which
 feature healthy, fresh and more vibrantly spiced food. Seven Daughters
 Winemaker's Blends pair well with a variety of foods and are perfect for
 casual entertaining or a night in with friends. The blends deliciously
 complement a wide range of cuisines including grilled meats, seafood, Latin
 cuisine, sushi and Asian fusion.
     As consumers have grown increasingly adventurous and interested as to
 how food is grown and prepared, their curiosity also extends to wine. To
 provide greater clarity to today's actively aware consumers, the
 percentages of each grape used in Seven Daughters Winemaker's Blends are
 clearly listed on the labels.
     "I meet people all the time who struggle with getting their friends and
 family to love wine as much as they do," says Maureen Petrosky, author of
 "The Wine Club" and Seven Daughters ambassador. "It doesn't matter if it's
 on the runway or in a bottle, today's trendsetters want something with
 flair that fits their style and personality. With Seven Daughters Blends
 they now have easy access to vibrant wines as fun and fashionable as they
