Speak Wines – a Southern California company with Fresno ties – has introduced its new line of specialty wines.
The company got its start last year and quickly gained national media attention for its unique labels. Each bottle contains a special saying such as Be Happy and Smile. This year, the company has introduced a new series of labels and a new white wine, a 2015 Torrontés from Argentina.
The new sayings include Oh So Grateful, Trés Rad, Meant to Be, You’re My Favorite, And So The Adventure Begins and She Believed She Could, So She Did.
Stephanie Fasi, managing partner of Speak Wines, said that while she and business partner Kerry Sutherland are red wine drinkers, they added white wine at the request of their customers.
Their first release was a red wine, a 2012 and 2014 Malbec. The Torrontés has aromas of melon, fig, and citrus with flavors of pear, melon and spice.
“Our customers really like it and we think it will do well,” Fasi said.
Fasi, whose father Ralph Fäsi owns Fäsi Estate Winery in Friant, said the wines make great gifts for any occasion.
Speak Wines are available online at www.speakwines.com or can be purchased at Fäsi Estate Winery in Friant, 42415 Road 208. The wines sell for $25 online; suggested retail is $20.
“Similar to the fashion industry, our brand will release new collections of wine at least on an annual basis, with new inspiring quotes and on-trend artwork,” Fasi said. “We couldn’t be more excited about Collection 2. Just when we thought wine couldn’t get any cuter, it did.”
