IT'S ALL ABOUT THE BLEND!
Winemaker Paul Scotto has watched Rare Blends grow from a "twinkle in his eye" in 2008 to become Scotto Cellars best selling brand.
"Blending gives us the freedom to create a consistent flavor profile that works for a wide range of consumers and occasions. People may not realize it, but most of the wines we drink are blends. Even if there is one varietal named on the label, odds are that another varietal or two are included to enhance the complexity and flavor profile. We tested Rare Red, the original release and still our best selling Rare type, with a variety of blends and flavor profiles before we found the one that had the most appeal."
Today, Impact Newsletter's Hot Prospects list of the 28 fastest growing U.S. wine brands ranks Rare at #8, due in large part to the quality and appealing taste profile. Critics like it too, with our 2014 Black Blend designated as a BEST BUY from the Wine Enthusiast, Double Gold for our NV Rare Red, BEST BUY for our 2015 Pinot Noir, from San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competitions and so many more!
