NEW: XO, G Moscato

xog-moscatoGiuliana Rancic has added Moscato as a new varietal to her wine brand, Xo, G. Available on select Walmart shelves in late spring 2015, the new Moscato is a semi-sweet wine with big, beautiful aromas of ripe peaches, a touch of honey sweetness and a wonderfully refreshing finish. Packaged in an innovative bottle designed for by-the-glass consumption, Xo, G consists of four prefilled, individually sealed, shatterproof, stemless wine glasses that snap together to form a perfect equivalent of a 750mL bottle, wonderful for those who prefer just one glass.

After the success of the initial launch of Xo, G with the Italian Pinot Grigio and the French Rose and Pinot Noir, Rancic was excited to add a Californian wine as a new addition to her wine brand. Rancic was looking to fill the high demand from consumers for a sweeter taste that has been trending in the wine industry. Perfect for summer, Moscato is fruity and sweet in flavor but still light and crisp.

“After hearing the positive reaction from consumers with the initial launch, I did an extensive amount of outreach through social media to find out what new flavors the Xo, G wine buyers wanted,” shares Giuliana Rancic. “As the wine industry is steering towards the sweeter flavors like Riesling and Sparkling Prosecco, it was no surprise that Xo, G consumers were demanding for a fruity Moscato.”

The California Moscato will hit shelves in late Spring and will be sold alongside the ever-so popular Xo, G Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, and Rose.

From a recent interview with LA Confidential Magazine:

ON WHAT TO EXPECT FROM HER NEW WINE COLLECTION, PS MATCH
PS: I’m going to have four flavors. We have a sweet red sparkling, we have a crisp green apple chardonnay, we have a cab—because we gotta have our traditional cab, but it’s a little more on the berry/jammy side—and we got to have our rose prosecco. Two of them come from Italy and two of them come from Napa; all four go with everything. These wines can be made into cocktails as well. With our sweet red sparkling, we do a sangria. Bringing people together was the big thing—bringing people together, sharing, relationships, intimacy, friendships have been built upon some the greatest wines of all time. And it is the elixir of the gods.

PS Match will be available at leading retailers in February of 2015.
