“We truly believe we have the best tasting low alcohol wine on the market,” says Heidi Scheid, Executive Vice President of Scheid Family Wines. “Receiving high scores and Best Buy recognition from a top publication such as Wine Enthusiast is wonderful validation, as it’s always been our goal to craft a wine that allows consumers to enjoy a great tasting, low alcohol option of the world’s greatest beverage. Starting with fruit that is sourced from our sustainably certified vineyards in Monterey County, we’re very proud of Sunny’s quality ethos and our vineyard and winemaking teams that make it happen.”
