Plant-based beverage innovator Napa Hills is launching a sparkling water that deliver the antioxidants of red wine, without alcohol, sugar or calories.
For the 2019 Natural Products Expo West, Chicago-based Napa Hills will add some sparkle to the functional beverage category with its new product: Napa Hills Sparkling Waters.
"The response to our original heart-healthy waters has been fantastic. Consumers have also been asking for a sparkling version to accompany meals and entertaining," said Napa Hills Founder Ellona Jarvis, in a statement. "Our new naturally flavored sparkling waters are fortified with red wine's antioxidants. They're delicious, unsweetened, and preservative free."
Packaged in 750- and 375-ml glass bottles, Napa Hills Sparkling Waters will be available in the brand's Cherry Rosé, Peach Grigio, Lemon Chardonnay and Pinot Berry flavors.
"Napa Hills Sparkling Waters make a beautiful and refreshing addition to any table," Jarvis added. "They also provide restaurants with a sophisticated hydration alternative, because each of our fruit flavors is designed to pair with your favorite foods."
A sugar-free beverage, Napa Hills also is paleo, keto and kid friendly. Napa Hills uses sustainably sourced ingredients and provides an upcycling path for the by-products and environmental impact of the winemaking industry, the company says.
Intrigued by the healthy components of wine, Jarvis was determined to deliver this to consumers without alcohol. She spent four years working with bio-science, winemaking, and beverage-production experts to develop VitaRes, the bio-available antioxidant blend in Napa Hills Water. In addition to red wine extract and grape skin extract, VitaRes contains resveratrol, the naturally occurring antioxidant in red wine.
