WOODINVILLE, Wash., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Matt Loso has done it again, and the timing couldn't be better for holiday tables:
2007 Vine & Sun Red Wine, $17 per 750 ml bottle

Total Production: 375 cases
Formed in 2001 by five business partners passionate about fine wine, Vine & Sun LLC (http://www.vineandsun.com) features two labels under the company name -- Vine & Sun and Barons V. While vintages are normally available only to a select mailing list of customers, wine shops and fine restaurants, the 2007 release marks the first time since the company's inception that the public will be offered this wine directly*. Only 375 cases were produced, so at the incredibly approachable price of $17, this food-friendly Bordeaux-style blend won't last.
Matthew Loso, Vine & Sun's winemaker, boasts extensive experience in the Washington wine industry and has a legendary talent and palate. Formerly the award-winning owner and winemaker of Matthews Estate in Woodinville (WA), Loso's ongoing mission is to fully express the vineyard while making world-class, Old World-inspired fine wines of intense character and great aging potential. In addition to being the winemaker for Vine & Sun LLC, he is also a consulting winemaker for several other respected Washington state wineries.

Not only is it offered at a terrific price, but it's an incredibly versatile wine, making it the perfect complement to a complex holiday meal with a broad spectrum of competing flavors and tastes," notes Loso.
