The last Saturday in September, a friend and I hosted a brunch for six people with seven sparkling wine producers. One of the producers who so generously provided samples was Frank Family Vineyards, a beautiful vineyard and winery in the Calistoga AVA of the Napa Valley owned and operated by three generations of Frank family members. This sample was facilitated by Jarvis Communications.
Without letting the cat out of the bag completely for future articles related to this brunch, the 2014 Frank Family Vineyards Brut Rosé, Carneros, was one of the standouts of our gathering. I may have accidentally set the tone of anticipation and excitement by thinking aloud, “I know this is going to be one of my favorites!”
However, in addition to the fact that this is a lovely brut rosé replete with juicy, red berry flavors enveloped with yeasty creaminess, I discovered during my writing research that during the month of October, Frank Family Vineyards is offering a Drink Pink for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) Package for $75, which includes a bottle of this brut rosé (SRP $55) and a T-shirt, and will donate 10% of each purchase to the BCRF, a foundation whose mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. BCRF recently announced a $63 million commitment to fund breast cancer research for 2018-2019.
As the sister of a breast cancer survivor, this is a cause near and dear to my heart, so I wanted to share this with my readers immediately, with a thank you to Frank Family Vineyards. To order your package, please call Jennifer Higgins at 707-942-2314.
Cheers to drinking pink!
