New Popular-Priced Wine Collection Developed by The Wine Group and Anheuser-Busch
LIVERMORE, Calif. — The Wine Group and Anheuser-Busch continue their collaborative partnership with the release of 101 North which is now available nationwide. A popular-priced wine brand inspired by its California roots and the iconic U.S. Highway 101, the brand celebrates the spirit of adventure and discovery. The approachable, new collection was made to explore with rousing blends of richness and bold fruit flavors in every varietal. At launch, 101 North Wines are available in Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Moscato.
“We’re excited to introduce the 101 North Wine Collection. I’ve been a winemaker for 12 years and personally grew up in Northern California right off the 101. These wines are inspired by the adventures that await across California’s diverse terrain,” said Todd Jenkins, Winemaker for 101 North. “We hope the brand’s welcoming and colorful message piques the curiosity of consumers to try our unique blends and explore the wine category.”
101 North Wines are California grown and have a depth of flavors and richness:
- Cabernet Sauvignon features smooth notes of red cherry and rich blackberry.
- Chardonnay with notes of green apple and sweet peach.
- Pinot Grigio with notes of bright citrus, ripe pear and lemon zest.
- Moscato featuring sweet aromas of white peach, pear and hints of citrus.
Each wine embodies the spirit of California with varietally correct taste profiles based on its terroir. The brand evokes the California aesthetic not only from the wine, but the place-centered packaging, reminiscent of the ocean views and sunny beaches on the southern coast all the way to the lush forests and stunning mountain vistas of the north. Wherever the adventure takes you, 101 North is perfect for a refreshing, celebratory toast after a long hike or spending the day relaxing at the beach. The thrill of discovery pours out into each and every glass.
101 North Wines are available in standard 750ml bottles and 500ml Tetra Paks in the varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio only. These wines are now available nationwide, distributed via The Wine Group’s collaborative partnership with Anheuser-Busch. The 101 North Wine Collection will join Anheuser-Busch’s Beyond Beer portfolio which includes brands like CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer, Cutwater Spirits, BON V!V and more. Through this partnership, the two companies have also released MD 20/20 Spiked Punch which is available nationwide now.
