Cupcake LightHearted Wines

Cupcake Vineyards has announced the launch of Cupcake LightHearted, the brand’s newest addition to its lineup of California wines.

Cupcake LightHearted has only 80 calories, and less than 1 gram of sugar per 5-oz. serving. The wines are 8% ABV, vegan, gluten-free and low carb.

“I created Cupcake LightHearted after realizing there wasn’t a lower-calorie and lower-alcohol wine option on the market that was delicious and complemented my active lifestyle,” says Jessica Tomei, winemaker for Cupcake Vineyards. “I’m an avid runner, and some days I want something that’s lower in calories and alcohol but doesn’t sacrifice flavor. Cupcake LightHearted checks all the boxes.”   

Cupcake LightHearted is available in four varietals: chardonnay, pinot grigio, rosé and pinot noir. Company-provided tasting notes include:

  • Chardonnay: Medium-bodied with flavors of pineapple and ripe pear. A portion of the wine was aged on oak to impart notes of toasted oak and vanilla on the finish. Per 5fl.oz.: Calories 77, Sugar 0.5g, Carbohydrates 3.5g
  • Pinot Grigio: Citrus aromatics that lead into bright, crisp flavors of lemon and honey crisp apples. The finish has hints of white nectarine and apricot. Per 5fl.oz.: Calories 76, Sugar 0.8g, Carbohydrates 3.5g
  • Rosé: Blush in color, with notes of grapefruit and bright watermelon. Hints of peach and honeysuckle. Per 5fl.oz.: Calories 78, Sugar .6g, Carbohydrates 3.7g
  • Pinot Noir: Light in body, with juicy fruit flavors of strawberry and plum that mix with notes of cherry and vanilla. Per 5fl.oz.: Calories 78, Sugar 0.5g, Carbohydrates 4.5g

Cupcake LightHearted is available nationwide in 750-ml. bottles with an SRP of $9.99 each.
