Mawby to Bring Cheer with Cherry-T ‘Ball Drop Bubbly’

Mawby Sparkling Wine is happy to announce this holiday season that they will be offering a first ever Ball Drop Bubbly celebrating Traverse City’s New Year’s Eve Cherry-T Ball Drop. 

A portion of proceeds from the commemorative sparkling wine will benefit the Festival Foundation who produces the Cherry –T Ball Drop, the iconic National Cherry Festival, Iceman Cometh Challenge, and the Leapin’ Leprechaun 5K Run/Walk.  So, raise a glass to Traverse City traditions and community.

This holiday seasonal bubbly will have a similar taste profile as MAWBY’s most popular bubbly – Sex.   A sparkling rosé, it could be said that this flavor profile is MAWBY’s most provocative wine offering. A brut blend of Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Riesling and Muscat grapes, this wine has ripe red fruit aromas, soft fruit flavors and a smooth, rounded finish. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully whole-cluster pressed.

The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, then blended with reserve wines and fermented a second time in a closed tank, and finally filtered, dosaged, and bottled.

“We are thrilled to support this important work of the Festival Foundation, preserving tradition and community with $3 of every bottle sold online or in the tasting room and $1.50 of every bottle sold in retail outlets going to the Foundation,” said Mike Laing, Winemaker. 

Each bottle is priced at just $19 per bottle.“We are excited to promote something special for people to celebrate with at home during this trying time. We are very honored and thankful to be part of this project with MAWBY. We think that this is truly a perfect fit,” said Kat Paye, Executive Director of the Festival Foundation.

MAWBY is a sparkling wine experience with vineyards and a tasting room located in the rolling coastal hills of Leelanau County adjacent to Lake Michigan.  MAWBYness is a feeling of being, an everyday celebration, a toast to life … excluding none, welcoming all.  MAWBY produces a range of sparkling wines, ciders and now canned products with tastes to suit most any palate, each uniquely approachable, with their own personality and purpose.
