With the introduction of both a still and Sparkling Rosé, Cupcake Vineyards is providing two delicious Rosé options that allow consumers to enjoy Rosé with any occasion.
Rosé remains one of the fastest growing wines, with the still Rosé category having grown over 62% in volume from last year1.

Cupcake Vineyards Sparkling Rosé is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes in Italy. The non-vintage wine has floral notes with refreshing hints of raspberry. As a limited time offering, Cupcake Vineyards Sparkling Rosé will only be available from April through September with an SRP of $15.99.
