ST. HELENA, NAPA VALLEY, Calif. (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
The third annual Beverage World BevStar Awards were recently announced with FLASQ Wines receiving a Gold Award in the wine category. The BevStar Awards recognize innovation in each major beverage segment, where the editorial team evaluates candidates on ingredients, packaging, market positioning and uniqueness.
“The JT Wines team is grateful to receive the coveted BevStar Gold Award recognizing FLASQ’s innovation in packaging and quality wines,” said Jennifer Schreiber, partner and vice president of sales and marketing. “Being the first U.S. winery to bottle in quick-chilling and 100% recyclable aluminum bottles, we knew this approach filled a niche for active lifestyles, and the industry and consumers are responding.”
Today, FLASQ features Chardonnay and Merlot blends from California’s prominent Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties, and the new Cuvée Blanc calls Sonoma’s Alexander Valley home. Sold in more than 30 states across the country at such leading retailers as Whole Foods Markets, Total Wine & More, Fred Meyer, Safeway, Bristol Farms, Rouse’s, Giant and Farm Fresh, the 375ml half-bottles with screw-cap tops generally sell for $6.99 each (varies by market).
Beverage World magazine serves the global beverage market through in-depth intelligence, analysis and insights, plus coverage of innovation and news for beverage marketers, producers, distributors and retailers. A special editorial section in Beverage World’s July 2012 issue is featuring FLASQ and other BevStar Award winners.
