In its first year on the market, the new 30A Red Blend has been named the best of its kind under $25.
It earned a gold medal in the Bordeaux blends under $25 category during a blind taste testing at the South Walton Wine and Food Festival competition last month. Over 600 wines were entered.
A panel of 21 wine experts from around the country scored and selected a gold, silver, and bronze medal winner in each of approximately 80 categories.
“We’ve always known it’s a fantastic wine at an affordable price point, but to win the gold medal among red blends is really incredible,” said 30A’s founder Mike Ragsdale.
“We’re so proud of our partnership with the Mercer family.”
30A Company representatives worked with Mercer to come up with the perfect red and white wines to go with the beach lifestyle and stay in line with the company’s ideals of promoting high-quality, sustainable goods.
The 30A Red Blend is barrel-aged in a combination of French and American oak for up to 12 months and bursts with ripe black cherry and plum flavors, with hints of caramel, coffee and smoke. The 30A Chardonnay is a light, crisp white wine, perfect for enjoying with a sunset on the beach.
Both are available for purchase online and at retailers across the Southeast.
This spring, The 30A Company will be releasing a 30A Rosé in response to popular demand from 30A fans. Stay tuned for more info.
