Gelson’s Introduces Winemaker Series With Barrett

Gelson's Winemaker series

Gelson’s has introduced a new Winemaker Series in partnership with Heidi Barrett.

Known as the “First Lady of Wine,” Barrett played a role in the 1992 creation of Screaming Eagle wine, which earned two 100-point scores from wine critics.

In partnership with Gelson’s, she has created a rich, ripe red blend that is a combination of Syrah, Petit Sirah and Cabernet Franc and has distinctive aromatics, as well as berry and plum flavors.

“When Gelson’s approached me to collaborate with them for their new Winemaker Series I did not hesitate. Our shared high standards of excellence and commitment to delivering only the best quality products are perfectly aligned,” Barrett said.

John Bagan, president and CEO, agreed.

“We are truly proud of this collaboration with Heidi Barrett, reflecting the attention to detail and quality that Gelson’s prides itself on,” he said. “Working with Heidi is just the beginning. We look forward to expanding the series with other renowned winemakers.”

The select wine is available in all stores or online on shop.gelsons.com.
