Wander + Ivy Unveils New Custom Bottling Line and Launches Sparkling Wines

Wander + Ivy is popping their own bubbly to celebrate the launch of Bubbles, the brand’s new sparkling rosé and white wines. The female-founded wine brand, specializing in elevated single-serve packaging, continues to innovate as they launch two new sparkling varietals along with a cutting-edge 2.2 million dollar custom bottling line. This monumental launch comes at an opportune time, as the brand is expanding wholesale distribution to Connecticut, DC, Delaware, Maryland, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, and Michigan. 

Wander + Ivy celebrates the launch of Bubbles

Wander + Ivy’s Bubbles continues to uphold the brand’s premium standards with added effervescence. Sourced from organic vineyards in the South of France, the sparkling rosé is a light, crisp pour with aromas of raspberries and strawberries. The sparkling white wine is sourced from organic vineyards in California and has hints of vanilla and aromas of pear and apricot. Each pour contains zero grams of sugar and is crafted with certified organic grapes, making these chic single-serve bottles this summer’s go-to drink. 

“I am beyond thrilled to see Wander + Ivy grow with these delicious new bubbly pours in-tandem with the launch of our multi-million dollar bottling line,” shares CEO + Founder, Dana Spaulding. “Sparkling wine is a personal favorite of mine. After years of R&D and investment, I am so proud and excited to break into this market just in time for summer and wedding season. Expanding even more across the US is just the icing on the cake of this sparkling launch”.

Designed to scale the brand and create massive efficiencies in the production process, the Wander + Ivy Bottling Line will ensure long-lasting bubbly freshness and the highest quality wine inside their patented, 6.3-ounce glass bottles.  Simultaneously, the brand is launching an innovative one-piece cap which provides a simple and seamless tasting experience.

Wander + Ivy’s sparkling launch comes hot on the heels of the announcement of expanded distribution to eight new wholesale markets. Now available in 43 states across the US, Wander + Ivy is honored to expand its partnership with female led Opici Family Distributing in Delaware, DC, and Maryland. The brand is also thrilled to expand with Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC), one of the leading distributors in the US and a Women of the Vine & Spirits member in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, and Michigan.
