Summer Water Rosé Awarded 91 Points in Wine Enthusiast's 2022 Buying Guide

The 2021 vintage was also specially designated as an Editor's Choice

LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Winc, Inc. ("Winc" or the "Company") (NYSE American: WBEV), a differentiated platform for growing alcoholic beverage brands, today announced that Summer Water Rosé's 2021 vintage has been awarded 91 Points by Wine Enthusiast. The renowned magazine's 2022 Buying Guide of Spring Rosé Releases also designated the wine as an "Editor's Choice."

"It's quite impressive that this wine stays fresh and vibrant even though it's a rather large production, available nationwide," writes Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast Contributing Editor. "Fresh and crisp aromas of melon, pink rose petal, citrus peel and strawberry pop on the nose, while the palate picks up a lightly rocky minerality before fresh citrus cuts into emergent stone fruit flavors on the finish."

Summer Water Rosé is the #1 best selling domestic premium rosé, produced in California's Central Coast with an SRP of $19.99. Summer Water is Winc's largest and most recognized brand, and stands apart from the majority of floral and feminine brands in the category with its bold look and iconic name. In addition to being a top rated wine by Winc's customers, this is the second such award for this fast growing rosé. In 2020, Wine Enthusiast awarded Summer Water 92 points and included it in the Top 100 Best Wines of the year.

"Our evolution from an ecommerce startup to producing world class wines year in and year out is an anomaly in our category and a true testament to our team's commitment to quality and innovative spirit," said Brian Smith, President & Co-Founder, Winc. "We have known that customers love this wine through our proprietary Winc.com data with nearly 10,000 ratings from younger Millennials and Gen X, so to have this validated by some of the most respected palates in the industry is extremely exciting for our team and for the future of our expanding portfolio and omni-channel platform for growth."
