Entwine, a California wine portfolio from Wente Vineyards, the oldest continuously-operated family-owned winery in America, today launched a 100% Money Back Guarantee program. In collaboration with Nomacorc, the world’s leading producer of high-tech wine corks, the 100% Money Back Guarantee program ensures that all consumers who purchase a bottle of entwine wine will enjoy every sip or they will get their money back.
The 100% Money Back Guarantee program is driven by entwine’s new smart closure, Nomacorc Select Series, which eliminates the risk of wine faults, including cork taint, oxidation and reduction, and ensures consistency from bottle to bottle. In addition, Nomacorc closures are fully recyclable and do not break or crumble when removed from the bottle.
“The switch to Nomacorc wine closures allows us to be more confident in guaranteeing customer satisfaction and ensuring that all entwine wines are expressed the way our winemaking team intended,” said Karl Wente, fifth generation winemaker at Wente Vineyards. “This new partnership will help maintain Wente’s long tradition of producing high-quality wines.”
Initially inspired to make food and wine pairing more approachable, entwine offers a portfolio of food-friendly, high-quality wines in partnership with Food Network. The portfolio consists of four varietal wines: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, each with its own distinct personality and flavor. Working with Food Network Kitchen, all entwine wines come with a diverse menu of food pairing possibilities ranging from comfort foods like macaroni and cheese to show-stopping recipes created by Food Network Kitchens.
“entwine is a brand that is backed by exceptional quality and a strong passion for expressing a wine’s vibrant aromas and flavors,” said Lars von Kantzow, president and CEO of Nomacorc. “These same values are intrinsic to Nomacorc and our products. Our company’s entire reason for being is to offer consumers the chance to enjoy wine without worry.”
Beginning in October, all entwine wines will come with a 100% Money Back Guarantee, promoted through in-store point-of-sale. If a consumer is dissatisfied with his/her entwine wine purchase, they can submit their claim to the winery for reimbursement of the purchased wine. The guarantee will be offered through October 2015.
“In a crowded retail environment where thousands of wines are available, our 100% Money Back Guarantee program offers added assurance to consumers that our wines will taste exactly as we intend,” continued Wente.
Nomacorc is a worldwide leader in wine closures and the No. 1 closure brand for still wines in many countries including France, Germany and the United States. Dedicated to technological innovation, Nomacorc manufactures its portfolio of products using a patented co-extrusion process.
