Korbel Brandy Celebrates 125 Years Of Handcrafted Excellence

GUERNEVILLE (RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY), Calif., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded in 1889, Korbel Brandy celebrates 125 years of brandy excellence this year. Like the smooth, award-winning flavor of Korbel Brandy, it is a milestone to savor. So, for the rest of the year, Korbel Brandy will mark the occasion with weekly 125th Anniversary Sweepstakes drawings and invites everyone to join the fun!

Francis Korbel must have seemed exceedingly optimistic when he built his first brandy still inside the brick tower at Korbel Champagne Cellars in 1889, but just four years later, Korbel Brandy was the surprise hit of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, perhaps the largest assemblage of brandies up to that time. His handcrafted approach – premium grapes, meticulous distillation, slow aging in hand-coopered oak barrels and careful blending – has guided Korbel Brandy ever since. In 1954, when the Heck family purchased Korbel Brandy from the descendants of Francis Korbel, it did so with the promise to continue this tradition of quality and two generations of Hecks have kept that promise. Today the Korbel Brandy portfolio encompasses four distinctive brandies: flavorful Korbel California Brandy, complex Korbel V.S.O.P. Gold Reserve, uniquely infused Korbel XS and rare, elegant Korbel 12.

The Korbel Brandy 125 Years of Handcraftology® Sweepstakes will begin on February 17, 2014 and continue weekly until December 28, 2014. Entries for each week's Sweepstakes drawing may be submitted either through the Korbel Brandy website at www.korbelbrandy.com/125years or through Korbel Brandy's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/korbelbrandy. Each Monday, a Sweepstakes winner will be drawn from the previous week's submissions. The weekly winner will receive an embossed, limited edition Korbel Brandy 125th Anniversary tin bar sign. Official rules for the Korbel Brandy 125 Years of Handcraftology® Sweepstakes are available at the Korbel Brandy website, www.korbelbrandy.com.

Unique among United States brandy producers, Korbel Brandy controls production from grape to bottle. Handcrafted in small batches, Korbel Brandy is aged to perfection in premium fire-toasted oak barrels to achieve golden amber color, generous butterscotch aroma and extra smooth taste.

Savor the taste – drink responsibly.
