An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled; there is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Luckily there is wine.
The Last Wine Company brings The Walking Dead Blood Red Blend and a companion Cabernet Sauvignon wine to market, featuring labels that respond to the Living Wine Label App, an augmented reality experience that bring the labels to life. The Blood Red Blend features an image of Sheriff Rick Grimes staring down the Undead and the Cabernet Sauvignon features a horde of Walkers. Will you join the living or rise with the dead?
A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.
While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.
Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.
