(November 7, 2018) — The Boston Red Sox have won their fourth championship title in the last 14 years. To commemorate their momentous victory, the Boston Red Sox 2018 World Series Championship Brut has just been released. Club fans and baseball aficionados can purchase a limited-edition bottle of this premium bubbly worthy of celebrating the team’s big victory at MLB.com/wine, or at select retail locations.

Wine by Design, the exclusive wine licensee of Major League Baseball, has again partnered with Rack & Riddle to deliver a premium limited-release World Series Championship Brut. The bubbly is sure to be a home run for both the Boston Red Sox and its loyal Red Sox Nation.

Winning the World Series is always a significant and historical victory. The winning club and fans deserve a unique, branded bubbly to honor the occasion. Wine by Design is the creative force behind the 2018 and other championship wines that have commemorated historic World Series titles, such as the San Francisco Giants (2012 & 2014), Boston Red Sox (2013), Kansas City Royals (2015), Chicago Cubs (2016), Houston Astros, (2017), and now another for the Boston Red Sox (2018).

“This is our 7th year creating a Limited Edition World Series Sparkling with MLB to celebrate such a momentous occasion for baseball fans. We are fortunate to have found such a great partner in Rack and Riddle and are excited about adding a sparkling wine from one of the most prestigious wine-making regions in California to the Boston Red Sox Club Series lineup.” said Diane Karle, CEO, Wine by Design.

Rack & Riddle, one of the nation’s largest custom wine services, specializes in premium private-label sparkling wines. Their esteemed winemaking team, led by Penny Gadd-Coster, Executive Director of Winemaking, custom-blended the exclusive World Series Championship Brut to be a grand slam. Crafted in the true French Méthode Champenoise style, the wine is rich and complex with fine bubbles, highlighting premium grapes grown in California.

“This wine is truly worthy of repeat champions like the Boston Red Sox, with fresh fruit aromas of yellow delicious apple and citrus flower nuanced with tropical notes on the nose. The taste follows through with citrus that livens the palate—begging for another taste,” said Gadd-Coster. “The beauty of a well-balanced Brut like this is it pairs well with a variety of foods – from fresh oysters to fish & chips or the perfect greasy slice from your neighborhood pizzeria! It’s perfect for drinking now, and ages well so you can celebrate with bubbly for months to come.  Save a bottle to enjoy with a homemade Fenway dog on opening day next season!”
