SIMI Winery and Reese Book Club Expand Their Partnership With New to Market Wine, the Editor Collection Rose
Chosen by Staff Editors on 17-MAR-22
Today, SIMI Winery, one of the pioneers of Sonoma County, shared the next chapter in its novel partnership with Reese's Book Club (RBC), the book club established by Hello Sunshine founder Reese Witherspoon, by introducing the Editor's Collection Rosé.
This new-to-market rosé is the latest from the page-turning, wine-drinking partnership first announced in November 2021 with the Editor's Collection, a limited-edition box set of two SIMI wines. Together, these brands continue to spotlight diverse female narratives and deepen connections within the community by offering book club members, wine drinkers and lovers of literature more ways to engage with stories and each other.
The Editor's Collection Rosé is an elegant, pale pink, medium-bodied blend with light fruit flavors for a dry, Provence-style wine. This new offering was developed collaboratively over the last year and uses the best pinot noir grapes sourced from throughout California to create a premium wine that pairs beautifully with good conversation, books and many favorite book club snacks.
"As a partnership rooted in celebrating narratives that place women at the center, we could not be more excited to turn this next page together," said Mallika Monteiro, EVP, chief growth, strategy and digital officer, Constellation Brands, the parent company of SIMI Winery. "We believe the launch of the Editor's Collection Rosé really delivers on all key rosé trends: a celebrity collaboration, an American-origin product created by a world-class, female-led winemaking team and a fan-favorite Provence-style wine that over-indexes with female audiences."
The heroines of Reese's Book Club worked closely with SIMI's female-led winemaking team to develop the Editor's Collection Rosé, a wine that both brands hope will inspire book club members and wine drinkers to chart and share their own paths forward.
"Together, our teams collaborated on all aspects — from the liquid to the label design — to create an offering truly reflective of what our readers are looking for that also naturally pairs with a good book and great company," said Sarah Harden, CEO, Hello Sunshine. "The Editor's Collection Rosé exemplifies the quality and thoughtful craftsmanship behind both of our brands and will be a focus [of] many chapters to come."
The Editor's Collection Rosé is available nationally, as well as on the SIMI website, retailing for $18.99 per bottle. A portion of profits will benefit the Readership, the Reese's Book Club collection of efforts to support literacy.
