What is Sunny with a Chance of Flowers?
In the words of its creators, Sunny with a Chance of Flowers is a wine that has been created to make you feel good inside and out. It is an innovative lower calorie, low carb and lower ABV collection of wines launched by the Scheid Family Wines in 2020.
According to Heidi Scheid, Sunny wines “started as an idea to create a wine that was positive in its message and provided moderation”. Hailing from California and bringing plenty of positive vibes both in its wine and its packaging, we think these wines really do offer sunshine in a glass.
We are really impressed with how Sunny with a Chance of Flowers is ‘mindfully made’ - something that we know is important to many of our customers. Sunny is sustainably grown and produced in the family's vineyard in Monterey, California, which is a certified California Sustainable Vineyard and Winery (California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance). Some of the innovations they use to support sustainability are detailed below:
- Natural pest control methods are used to keep the vineyards balanced
- Drip irrigation is used throughout the vineyards to reduce water consumption. This is where water is placed directly into the root zone, minimising run-off, drift and evaporation, therefore minimising wasted water. On average, drip irrigation used 20 to 50 percent less water than normal sprinkler systems
- The winery is 100% powered by renewable energy created by the onsite wind turbine. Whatsmore, this wind turbine also provides energy to 125 local homes - talk about added value!
In order to create a reduced alcohol wine, the Sunny team use an innovative and proprietary process that features a 2-stage filter. Alcohol is gradually and gently pulled from the wine, leaving behind a reduced alcohol product for you to enjoy.
