On Wednesday, April 3rd, I attended the launch of Magnifico Giornata's new sparkling wine infused essence collection at Beaumarchais, hosted by VH1's Carrie Keagan, a partner in the brand. The three essences include Ginger Pêche, Grapefruit Blanc, and my favorite, a unique Lavender Honey.
Notable attendees included Phillip Bloch, VH1's Janell Snowden, Z100's Trey Morgan, Kristen Ruhlin, J Smith Cameron and Cara Castronuova, Fitness Personality/Trainer, The Biggest Loser, Season 11.
Guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and a pairing table with small bites including an amazing tuna tartare with avocado, to compliment each of the essences. DJ Jeffrey Tonnesen spun the tunes and burlesque troop Nuit Blanche also performed. Attendees received a lovely gift bag featuring two bottles of Magnifico Giornata and decadent truffles.
The event marked the official launch of Magnifico Giornata in the Greater New York Area. The collection will be available at a suggested retail price of $24.99 a bottle in finer liquor stores and lounges throughout the city, and will roll-out to other key markets in the U.S. during 2013.
This is definitely my new favorite wine - very affordable and makes a great gift too. Look out for it and learn more about Magnifico Giornata at magnificobrands.com.
