Adler Fels Winery , in partnership with the National Park Foundation, this week announced the release of the National Parks Wine Collection.
The collection's first two releases, Yosemite Artisan Red Blend and Yosemite Artisan White Blend, will be available April 3, online at www.nationalparkswinecollection.com and at participating retailers nationally. $2.00 from each bottle sold will be donated to the National Park Foundation to support its mission to preserve and enrich America's national parks.
Featuring iconic national park images by American photographer Mark Burns, this wine collection celebrates the beauty of America's national parks and the bounty of California's premier vineyards.
Yosemite Artisan Red is a full-bodied, fruit forward blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah. The palate is highlighted by a core of dark berry and toasted spice flavors.
Yosemite Artisan White is a lively, effusively aromatic blend of Viognier, Moscato, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The palate offers citrus and pineapple notes with a hint of minerality.
Future bottlings will showcase collectible combinations of national park images and premium grape varietals, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
"We are honored to work with the National Park Foundation to produce this iconic wine collection," said Adler Fels General Manager Dan O'Leary. "As artisan winemakers, land stewardship is at the heart of what we do. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the protection and preservation of our national parks with the launch of the National Parks Wine Collection."
