HEALDSBURG, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rack & Riddle Custom Wine Services, one of the largest custom wine operations in the nation, announced the release of the Kansas City Royals World Series Championship Brut sparkling wine. Product is available for sale online and at select retail outlets. For more information visit, mlb.com/wine.

Wine by Design, an official licensee of Major League Baseball, identified Rack & Riddle as the ideal partner to produce this limited-release commemorating the champions of the 111th Fall Classic. The Royals Championship Brut was crafted in the methode Champenoise process, and showcases premium grapes from California's renowned North Coast region.

"This is a celebratory bubbly created especially for the team and fans—soft in the mouth with bright notes of sweet red raspberry, strawberry and green apple, and hints of citrus flower on the nose," said Rack & Riddle Executive Director of Winemaking, Penny Gadd-Coster. "This Brut pairs well with any food, and its long shelf life means the 2015 Royals can be celebrated for months or years to come—it's a great commemorative bottle." 

Rack & Riddle produced its first MLB wine in 2013, a championship brut for the Boston Red Sox.

"We are excited to reprise this role," said Rack & Riddle General Manager Mark Garaventa. "It's incredible to see our bubbly popped and poured while fans celebrate this victory."

With its expansion in 2014 to two new locations in Sonoma County, Rack & Riddle is proudly committed to providing pristine facilities where winemakers craft both still and sparkling wines. Rack & Riddle offers complete grape-to-bottle, base-to-bottle, and private label wine programs, and houses nearly 2 million gallons of stainless steel storage and fermentation vessels. An exceptional winemaking team produces 1.2 million cases of wine annually. For more information, visit www.rackandriddle.com.
