EW YORK, NY (August 17, 2009) – Vignette Wine Country Soda, a fresh and completely unique option in the growing market for upscale gourmet beverages, is an all-natural, non-alcoholic, lightly carbonated soda sweetened only with the juice of premium wine grapes. Vignette has announced that it will now be available at Dean & Deluca stores in New York.



Dean & Deluca, a purveyor of specialty foods, fine wines, and high-end kitchenware since 1977, makes an ideal setting for founder Pat Galvin to take Vignette Wine Country Soda to the next level. “Although already sold in numerous gourmet markets, upscale restaurants, and winery tasting rooms, availability of our beverages on the East Coast is not widespread,” says Galvin. “Our goal is to make our brand readily accessible to consumers in more markets and we could not be happier that Dean & Deluca, with its dedication to providing the finest assortment of high quality specialty foods and beverages, will be a key partner to help us achieve that goal.”



Founder Pat Galvin was inspired to create Vignette Wine Country Soda after discovering an opportunity to make use of the delicious wine grapes abundant in California in a sophisticated, non-alcoholic beverage. With his proximity to wine country, Galvin researched and realized that an effervescent soft drink utilizing wine country varietals did not exist. “With the growth of sparkling juice drinks, gourmet sodas and the increasing attention to natural ingredients, I was shocked to discover no one was making use of the high quality wine grapes for any type of soft drink,” says Galvin. “The goal from the beginning was to create a brand of uniquely refreshing beverages that capture a little bit of wine country magic in a soda bottle.”



Vignette Wine Country Soda is an all-natural, effervescent artisanal soda lightly sweetened with the juice of premium California varietal grapes. Currently available in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé varieties, the sodas have a sophisticated, vine inspired label and are presented in either single-serve, 12-ounce glass bottles or a convenient four-pack. Vignette Wine Country Soda is now available at Dean & Deluca in New York as well as online at www.winecountrysoda.com.
