NOVATO, Calif., March 11, 2019 — WX Brands, a top 20 U.S. wine company, continues to see success with its nationally-distributed Bread & Butter Wines. The wines have continued to attract a loyal and enthusiastic following since WX integrated the brand into its portfolio in spring 2017. During the last year, Bread & Butter Wines grew 67% making it one of the fastest growing brands in the super premium wine segment in the US*. In recognition of this substantial growth, M. Shanken Communications’ Impact Newsletter recently named Bread & Butter Wines as a ‘Hot Brand’ for the 2018 calendar year.
“We’ve always known that Bread & Butter Wines has enormous consumer appeal,” said WX Brands CEO Peter Byck. “We also believe it is one of the hottest wine brands in the business, so it is gratifying to be recognized by a leading authority.”
Known for their quality wine, approachable style and iconic black and white label, the Bread & Butter portfolio is comprised of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and a newly added Rosé launched last month. All varietals are offered at a suggested retail price of $15.99.
“Expanding the offerings of Bread & Butter Wines to include a Rosé was an easy decision,” Byck continued. “This new wine mirrors the brand’s goal of offering classic wines with an effortlessly stylish twist. We feel confident this wine will be received with the same enthusiasm from our fans. We look forward to another year of growth.”
