Cheers for Vignette!

Back in November, when we received our complimentary cheese assortment from Affinage Cheese, we saw an intriguing product on their website, the Vignette Wine Country Soda. It looked like an elegant alternative to the cloyingly sweet sodas found in vending machines. We read a little more about Vignette, and discovered they are a non-alcoholic soda, flavored with varietal grapes such as pinot noir and chardonnay.

We were intrigued and contacted the company to see if they would be interested in sending us some samples to review for Our Daily Green. We were delighted when they shipped us two bottles of their soda, the California Brut and Pinot Noir soda. We took them to an open house party to share with the guests. The party was a mid-afternoon event, so it was really nice to have a non-alcoholic option.

What everyone really liked was the delicate and sophisticated flavor of the Vignette Sodas. It completely overcame the previous impressions of artificially colored purple grape soda or overly sweet and bubbly non-alcoholic sparkling juice drinks, that is typically only enjoyed by the single-digit aged crowd. This was a soda for adults, without any added sugar and is actually made from the same vineyard grapes as California premium wines. According to founder Patrick Galvin,
“The goal from the beginning was to create a better soft drink and a new brand that captured a little bit of wine country magic in a soda bottle,” Galvin says.  “And I’m hopeful people who see Vignette on the shelf and give it a try will feel that we've accomplished that.
We highly recommend the Vignette Wine Country Sodas and they have generously offered a giveaway to one of our lucky readers. See for yourself how delightful they are. Just leave a comment on this post. Contest closes on January 29th at midnight EST. We will randomly select one winner from the comments.
