Iconic Winery, Sutter Home, Launches New Red Blend


St. Helena, Calif. (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

Sutter Home Family Vineyards, one of the best-selling wine brands in the world, announced today that it has added a new Red Blend to its growing portfolio.

By blending three distinct red grapes from California ̶ Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot ̶ Sutter Home has crafted a perfectly balanced red wine that is both smooth and delicious. With each grape imparting its own set of unique flavors and characteristics, this blend brings forth juicy red fruit flavors, soft tannins and a luscious, velvety finish.

The new Red Blend has an accessible price point and an approachable style that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. This latest release continues Sutter Home’s legacy of offering consumers what they want and at a great value.

In the 1970s, Sutter Home produced the first White Zinfandel, launching an international wine trend that forever changed the way wine is enjoyed. In 2005, the winery was the first to produce the groundbreaking single-serve, 187ml in light-weight plastic bottles. Additionally, they were one of the first wineries to produce Moscato over 60 years ago.

“Sutter Home quickly learned the importance of listening and responding to what our consumers are saying. We want our consumers to know that we understand what they want and we will continue to set the bar for the wine industry,” says Wendy Nyberg, vice president of marketing for Sutter Home.

In keeping with this tradition of listening to consumers and facilitating their conversations around wine, the new Red Blend is a natural addition to the growing portfolio. According to Nielsen, Red Blends are the fastest growing segment among the top 10 largest table wine varietals. They are growing twice as fast as Sauvignon Blanc, the second fastest growing varietal type, and six times as fast as the wine category overall. Today, the category is now the 5th largest “varietal” and makes up for 6% of total wine sales – up 17% versus a year ago in $ Volume*.

“Sutter Home has created a solid reputation with a loyal following. According to Nielsen, within the $ 5 – $ 7 price segment, Red Blends are the drivers of growth* which makes this a great opportunity for Sutter Home,” says Nyberg. “Sutter Home has been awarded more than 200 gold medals in the past ten years, a testament to the quality of the wines. We are especially excited about the Red Blend as its on trend, the package is stunning, and the wine is delicious,” she adds.

Sutter Home Red Blend comes in an elegant and sophisticated new package. This bold package will attract new consumers, as well as younger wine consumers, and creates an elevated experience for current brand loyalists. “For our original varietals such as the White Zinfandel and Chardonnay, we will keep with our traditional packaging. With our new Red Blend, we are offering consumers a new look and taste experience,” Nyberg explains.

Established in 1948 in Napa Valley by the Trinchero family, Sutter Home helped introduce wine to a new base of wine drinkers by developing and introducing White Zinfandel in the early 1970s. The consumer response and success of the varietal helped Sutter Home grow into a household name and one of the largest, independent family-owned wineries in the U.S.

Sutter Home Red Blend is $ 6.99 and available in retail stores nationwide.

Home Care Assistance Informs Seniors on Safe Driving in Winter Weather


Centennial, CO (PRWEB) December 12, 2014

Home Care Assistance, Colorado’s premier provider of in-home care for seniors, shares some helpful tips for seniors on how to prepare their cars to ensure safe driving through the winter months and snowy conditions. It’s predicted that this winter will be colder and wetter than years past, with above average snowfall. Weather forecasters are keeping watch of El Niño and the Southern Jet Stream, as both can have a significant impact on Denver’s weather. Seniors, in particular, need to be prepared, as they are more susceptible to harsh weather conditions. To this end, Home Care Assistance is offering some practical tips to seniors who may be behind the wheel this winter.

“Weather conditions in Colorado can change at a moment’s notice, so it is important that drivers are always prepared for inclement weather,” says Pete Lane, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Centennial. “Winter weather can prove difficult to drive in for people of all ages, and we hope these tips increase the safety on the roads this season.”

The key to safe driving is visibility, and it is particularly important for seniors to ensure that all lines of vision are unobstructed. To keep the front windshield clear, there should be plenty of windshield washer fluid in the reservoir. It is prudent to carry additional fluid in the trunk as an extra precaution. The windshield can also be cleaned by applying rubbing alcohol, which is said to eliminate streaks and make the front window perfectly see-through. When it comes to nighttime driving, rubbing car wax on the headlights is another trick that can keep the lights bright and free from build-up for up to six weeks.

Cold and wet weather can cause ice to form on car windows, obstructing visibility. A solution of three-parts vinegar and one-part water can be sprayed on the front windshield and left overnight as a cost-effective way to ice-proof windows. This not only clears up visibility when driving, but it can also put much less strain on seniors, who won’t have to endure trying to scrape the ice off their car windows every morning. Another convenient tip for seniors is to use shaving cream to defog windows. By simply spraying the shaving cream on the inside of one’s windshield and then wiping it off with paper towels just prior to driving, windows will stay fog-free. Many ingredients found in shaving cream can also be found in defoggers.

The Colorado Department of Transportation recommends that drivers are always prepared for bad weather by keeping supplies in their car. They recommend that drivers have a scraper, snow brush, coat, hat, gloves, blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, tire chains, matches and nonperishable food in the car. It is also important that car tires have good tread and are properly inflated.

If you are not comfortable driving in the winter weather, Home Care Assistance can help. Our highly-qualified caregivers are available for hourly or live-in care, with five locations serving the Denver Metro Area. To learn more about Home Care Assistance, please visit http://www.HomeCareAssistance.com or call 866-454-8346.

This not only clears up visibility when driving, but it can also put much less strain on seniors, who won’t have to endure trying to scrape the ice off their car windows every morning. Another convenient tip for seniors is to use shaving cream to defog windows. By simply spraying the shaving cream on the inside of one’s windshield and then wiping it off with paper towels just prior to driving, windows will stay fog-free. Many ingredients found in shaving cream can also be found in defoggers.

The Colorado Department of Transportation recommends that drivers are always prepared for bad weather by keeping supplies in their car. They recommend that drivers have a scraper, snow brush, coat, hat, gloves, blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, tire chains, matches and nonperishable food in the car. It is also important that car tires have good tread and are properly inflated.

Home Care Assistance Informs Seniors on Safe Driving in Winter Weather


Centennial, CO (PRWEB) December 12, 2014

Home Care Assistance, Colorado’s premier provider of in-home care for seniors, shares some helpful tips for seniors on how to prepare their cars to ensure safe driving through the winter months and snowy conditions. It’s predicted that this winter will be colder and wetter than years past, with above average snowfall. Weather forecasters are keeping watch of El Niño and the Southern Jet Stream, as both can have a significant impact on Denver’s weather. Seniors, in particular, need to be prepared, as they are more susceptible to harsh weather conditions. To this end, Home Care Assistance is offering some practical tips to seniors who may be behind the wheel this winter.

“Weather conditions in Colorado can change at a moment’s notice, so it is important that drivers are always prepared for inclement weather,” says Pete Lane, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Centennial. “Winter weather can prove difficult to drive in for people of all ages, and we hope these tips increase the safety on the roads this season.”

The key to safe driving is visibility, and it is particularly important for seniors to ensure that all lines of vision are unobstructed. To keep the front windshield clear, there should be plenty of windshield washer fluid in the reservoir. It is prudent to carry additional fluid in the trunk as an extra precaution. The windshield can also be cleaned by applying rubbing alcohol, which is said to eliminate streaks and make the front window perfectly see-through. When it comes to nighttime driving, rubbing car wax on the headlights is another trick that can keep the lights bright and free from build-up for up to six weeks.
