We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of the new vintage of Ocean Reserve – with a gorgeous new label and a new beneficiary. The “official” debut is March 17th, in time for Earth Day in April. We can’t wait for you to dive in!
Kudos to our winemakers Sofian Himeur and David Munksgard and our label designer Mark Berry for taking this special bottling to a new level. Proceeds will now go to marine conservation non-profit Mission Blue, founded by legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle. The mission of Mission Blue is to establish a global network of marine protected areas, called “Hope Spots”. The current count is 120 around the world. The goal is to protect 30% of our marine resources by 2030.
Dr. Earle is a National Geographic Explorer in Residence. She was the first woman Chief Scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Time Magazine’s first Hero of The Planet, a Ted Prize winner, and is lauded as “her deepness” because she has logged more than 7,000 hours underwater..
It is an honor to partner with her and her organization and help safeguard the “blue heart” of our planet. The Pacific is the engine of our special, cool, foggy microclimate, which allows us to make Sparkling Wines on this level of finesse and elegance and makes giving back so essential.
The link to purchase this wine will be posted on March 17.
