Napa Valley, Calif. (PRWEB) July 18, 2008
Gold Medal winning Napa Valley wine producers, Scott and Jana Harvey, celebrated the release of Batman, The Dark Knight by announcing their own Super-Hero brand, handcrafted for the fastest growing wine drinking demographic, the Millennial generation. http://www.inzinerator.com
InZINerator is a sexy, luscious, sun-kissed Zinfandel and Barbera blend with seductive raspberry, fig, cherry, mocha and violet notes. The Harvey's artist nephew, Michael Harants, who also designed for the next Star Trek film and the NFL created the brand's limited edition collector art labels.
Mr. Harvey, a leader in Amador County's starring role in the wine world, controls fifty per cent of the production of California's oldest Zinfandel vines that date from 1869 and produce one of the top three Barberas in the world, outside Italy.
The Wine Enthusiast, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines, California Grapevine and the San Francisco Chronicle are among the publications that have lauded Scott Harvey's elegant and affordable wines.
"Everyday we are asked where to buy them," enthused Gary Saperstein, General Manager of The Girl and the Fig, a popular restaurant on Sonoma's Historic Old Plaza that has held-over Scott Harvey wines, by popular demand a record two years on their wine by-the-glass list that is traditionally changed weekly.
The Golden State's first vineyards were planted in 1769 at the San Diego Mission. Today, California is the fourth largest wine producer among the world's 70-nations engaged in the 8,000-year-old craft of winemaking.
California produces 90% of U.S. wine exports, which adds $45 billion to the state's economy, compared, say, to Hollywood's total 2007 worldwide ticket sales of $25.6 billion. And Napa Valley is the epicenter of U.S. wines, added a glammy unnamed mystery woman in dark glasses and a trench coat.
In this week of celebrations and tongue-in-cheek rivalry between the states two famed industries, bean counters noted that Batman (aka billionaire industrialist, Bruce Wayne) made Forbe's List of Richest Comic Characters. Assets of The Caped One's alter ego were calculated at a muscular $7 billion. The California Wine Association countered that Northern California's wine industry is the state's second tourist destination after Disneyland.
Super-Heroes All Around:
Scott and Jana Harvey are passionate about their secret ingredient -- premium grapes that bask in mountain warmth and are blended with the same kind of meticulous artistry that is devoted to creating a BMW, Apple notebook or a fine import cheese from Whole Foods. Every sip of Scott and Jana's wines contains the sensuous taste of glorious Napa Valley.
In celebrating the releases of their new vintage and the new Batman film, Scott and Jana hosted a "Batman Barbeque Bash" at their Victorian home surrounded by the verdant vineyards in Napa Valley. They combined succulent baby-back ribs with choices of refreshing InZinerator, Jana Napa Valley Riesling, One Last Kiss and the Jana Rose.
InZinerator grabbed a Gold Medal at the California State Fair, and makes summertime grilled chicken, meat, burgers, pizza or pasta totally rock, chimed one of their 20-something partygoers.
"It brings out the Superhero in all of us," Scott exclaimed, "In fact those super-villains just don't have a chance anymore!" Their guests cheered at the unveiling of the new wines, which promised to rescue them from the menacing summer heat. "His German-European training brings an elegant expression to his wines", opined Dr. Richard Peterson.
As the temperature rose, Jana Harvey entertained in legendary style, and revealed her trick, "Our refreshing One Last Kiss with an ice cube helps me to keep my cool." Soon darkness approached and the warmth faded in Napa Valley, the dangers of Gotham City evaporated from all of their minds.
