Chrissy Metz has announced the launch of The Joyful Heart Wine Company. Created in collaboration with award-winning winemaker Nicole Walsh, the brand has started by releasing three bottlings, Joyful Heart Red Blend, White Blend, and Limited Reserve Red Blend.
Joyful Heart Wine Company “celebrates the union of sharing wine and the spirit of generosity,” says the brand. A portion of every bottle sold is donated to World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond. They have transformed the field of disaster response to help devastated communities recover and establish resilient food systems and have served more than 50 million meals to people impacted by crises around the world.
“These wines hold a special place in my heart, and it’s been amazing to watch our collective vision become a reality. Born out of my desire to live from the heart, to create purposeful moments, give back to the community, and to share delicious wine with loved ones, Joyful Heart Wine Co. has been a dream of mine for many years,” shared Chrissy Metz. “For me, a Joyful Heart is a reminder of the importance of breaking bread together, sharing in community, and knowing that we are all deeply loved.”
The Joyful Heart Red Blend ($16) features a smooth velvety finish, carefully blended to produce a delightfully robust and vibrant mix of rich, dark berry flavors. Sourced from several vineyards in California, it is a combination of cabernet, merlot, petit verdot, and petite sirah.
The Joyful Heart White Blend ($16) is bright and textured, with a fragrant mix of white peach, tropical fruit, and fresh flowers. A harmonious blend, this crisp and refreshing white wine is rooted in sauvignon blanc, with a splash of chardonnay.
The 2019 vintage Joyful Heart Limited Reserve Red Blend ($40) is full bodied with a dark ruby rich color, and has aromas of blueberry, black cherry, cedar and plum. Fermented in small lots using handcrafted winemaking techniques and matured for 22 months in a combination of new and seasoned two-year-old and neutral French Oak Barrels, the wine is expected to continue to evolve in balance, length, and complexity over the next ten years.
