The Bachelorette’s Ashley Hebert and sister, Chrystie Corns, hosted a launch party at Eric Adolfsen’s The Wooly for Apothic White wine last night. The scene was reminiscent of a Juxtapose Magazine spread; eclectic tastes seamlessly strewn together to create the feeling of an oversized doll house attic from with belgian wallpaper, Claude Morais painted lamp shades and a nonworking piano.
Miss Hebert, vibrantly dressed in white, and Miss Corns, in black, played the part of the dolls adorably. Reflecting Apothic’s red and white selections, the sisters spent a few minutes charming the crowd, relating the wines to their own complementary personalities.
Apropriate for The Wooly's downtown lounge, Apothic is named after a secret gathering place that vintners used to store wines in 13th century Europe. California winemaker, Boyd Morrison, The Apothic White is a new blend combining Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato. Due in part to 2010's unusual climate, imbibers will notice a bolder collection of flavors including peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla spice, making it quite delicious.
With an alchohol content of 11.9% and $14/750ml pricetag, a chilled Apothic White is an excellent way to start off any evening. You can purchase a bottle for yourself at Apothic.com or do your own research on facebook.com/apothicwine and twitter.com/apothicwine.
