Reif Estate Winery and Design Duo Steven & Chris launch new wine collection.
This new partnership was inspired by the international design duo’s love for entertaining and designing all things fun and fabulous. It seemed a natural progression to expand their home décor line, S&C Collection, to include quality VQA wines at an affordable price.
The CBC co-hosts of a lifestyle talk show sought out winemaker Klaus W. Reif, near Steven’s home town of Niagara Falls. Both Steven and Chris were attracted to Klaus’ philosophy that “great wines start in the vineyard”. His precise management of soil, grapes and growing conditions in his 125 acre vineyard allow him to produce small batches of original and exceptional estate bottled VQA wines.
“I have always believed wine is a part of a healthy lifestyle. I was inspired by Steven and Chris to create a signature collection for them that signifies the trend to go local and enjoy wines while dining or entertaining with friends and family.” Klaus W. Reif
The first two wines in the Trend Wine Collection are now available in LCBO’s across Ontario. These unique blends were designed to reflect Steven’s love of Chardonnay and Chris’ affection for Merlot, as well as their desire to create versatile wines that would be perfect for any lifestyle.
“The un-oaked Chardonnay-Pinot Grigio blend he created for us has fresh, fruit flavours that make it a refreshing aperitif, and it also pairs well with white fish, poultry or salad greens. The Merlot-Cabernet blend has aromas and flavours that are sensational. We love to serve it on its own, with cheeses, or at dinner with grilled meats.”
Steven and Chris
The wines are a new undertaking for a team best known for their television shows, the original Designer Guys, Design Rivals and So Chic with Steven and Chris. Highly regarded internationally in their chosen craft, these beloved design experts have appeared regularly on the talk show circuit including The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The official launch of Trend Wines will be in Toronto on September 2nd and in Niagara at the Winery on September 18th.
TREND WINES now available at over 100 LCBO’s across Ontario and at trendwines.com.
