Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company, a collaboration between Underdog Wine & Spirits and Grammy Award-winning band Train, announces the launch of its second varietal offering, Calling All Angels Chardonnay.
Following the successful launch of Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co.’s inaugural varietal, Drops of Jupiter Petite Sirah, the new varietal is named for Train’s chart-topping single and embodies the story behind the music. “Even though Train was successful after we won the Grammy for Drops of Jupiter, I felt unsuccessful in my life,” says Train lead singer Pat Monahan. “A friend encouraged me to call my angels. Through this song, I thought I could help others call their angels, too.”
Inspired, Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. vintner Adam Richardson has interpreted Train’s song as a fruit-forward, medium bodied Chardonnay. “The song is uplifting and fulfilling, as is Calling All Angels Chardonnay with its soft tannins and long finish.” Train guitarist and wine fan Jimmy Stafford agrees, “Chardonnay is my go-to choice of wine after rockin’ out under the bright lights on stage. This blend has a fantastic citrus scent, a hint of pineapple that is refreshing to enjoy both with dinner or drinks with friends.”
Calling All Angels Chardonnay hopes to continue to inspire beyond the song’s message: a portion of the proceeds from Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. sales will be in support of Family House, a non-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children.
