Danica Patrick’s love for wine is fueled by the romance around it. The delicate process of making wine. The beautiful landscapes and regions of the world that encapsulate it. The rich history and arduous labor of love behind every cluster of grapes. But mostly, it’s about bringing people together. With all the distractions in the world today, we struggle to even sit at a dinner table without looking at our phone. The intention behind wine is to connect.
Danica sought to make a French rosé because it offers an authentic and universal connection. A wine that can please lovers of both red and white and declares, “Let’s share an experience.”
THE MORNING STAR BOTTLE
The name Danica comes from the Slavic word meaning “morning star,” a symbol of hope, guidance and courage. Each of these elegant, custom-made bottles is adorned with a twin morning star at the neck. Danica Patrick created this rosé in honor of her mother for giving her the name, and the power and perseverance that comes with it.
With its morning star symbols accompanied by a French flag neck label, the bottle itself is designed to pay homage to the wine’s French pedigree. Glow-in-the-dark lettering gives the white Danica Rosé logo a luminous presence in low light, drawing your eye wherever it sits. Further engaging the senses, the bottle is embossed with a raised floral design that provides tactile pleasure when picking it up.
Its beautiful shape, from tapered bottom to long graceful neck, represents a piece of glass artwork in its own right. At her dinner parties, Danica Patrick repurposes empty Danica Rosé bottles as stylish water containers for guests. It works equally well as a vase, proving that beauty has the power to transcend purpose, and that life, like art, is what we make of it.
It made perfect sense that Danica Patrick desired Provence to be her next wine adventure. The south of France produces some of the world’s best wines, where nearly two-thirds of the region is dedicated entirely to rosé.
The winemaking history there dates back more than 2,500 years when the Greeks planted the first grapevines in Provence, making it the oldest wine region in France.
Such deep-rooted viticulture history and the al fresco lifestyle of the region find a happy marriage in the ideal climate, terroir, and grape varietals suited to creating rosé.
THE DANICA ROSÉ TEAM
In her quest to create the best possible French rosé for American consumers, Danica built an all-star winemaking team that includes 100-point winemakers and Les Vins Margnat, a family whose winemaking tradition dates back to the French Revolution. The history of the region is abundant with their pedigree of producing the best-quality French rosé wine. Not to mention sharing a love of racing, with the Margnat family sponsoring a cycling team for many years in the venerable Tour de France.
This partnership is the foundation of Danica Rosé, an approachable wine produced in the traditional Provençal style. Fragrant, dry, and medium bodied, this proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot and Caladoc offers luscious, vibrant notes of crisp white peach, fresh-cut melon, tart strawberry, hibiscus, and lime blossom, complemented by perfect minerality, balanced acidity, and a refreshing finish.
Danica Rosé earns its status as a versatile wine: for pairing with food or sipping all by itself, for relaxing at home or – with its new 1.5 liter magnum bottle – for sharing at a dinner party or a posh nightclub. A Rosé for All Occasions.
