Truffle Red is the #8 Sweet Red Wine in the U.S.!

Truffle Red Wine

Truffle Red continues to amaze everyone here at Maverick Wine Group with its popularity among female wine drinkers.

As we close out the summer and gear up for the holiday season, I’m proud to announce that Truffle Red is the #8 best-selling Sweet Red wine in the U.S.!  When I launched Truffle Wines, I saw that women were being underserved by the wine industry, especially female millennials, who were looking for something other than the same-old-same-old, and I wanted to create new wine blends that catered to this emerging group of wine drinkers.

Thank you for proving me right, and know that I am working on new blends for 2014 that will build on our portfolio of Truffle Red, Truffle Pink Moscato, and Truffle Chiffon Chardonnay.

As Sweet Reds continue to explode in popularity, we will soon unveil a new brand that I know you’ll love just as much as Truffle Red.

In the meantime, I hope you’ll click over to our Rockwell Wines page and look at our Christmas-themed wines that make perfect gifts for the wine drinker(s) in your life.

Thanks again for making Truffle Red a huge success!
