"It brings me great joy to partner with Mumm Napa to collaborate on the Supernatural Rose sparkling wine. Mumm Napa represents the best of Napa Valley and shares a commitment to excellence. The Supernatural Rose is a supreme compliment to this integrity," said Santana in a press release.
"Proceeds received from this partnership go to support The Milagro Foundation, for the purpose of helping underserved and vulnerable children by making grants to organizations in the areas of education, health and the arts. Funds received from Mumm Napa are used to support teen substance abuse programs.”
Supernatural spirits aren’t sold in stores. It’s available online at www.mummnapa.com and at the Mumm Napa winery. Supernatural, the wine, is Santana’s second bottling collaboration between Mumm Napa and Carlos Santana.
Mumm Napa winemaker Ludovic Dervin worked closely with Santana, using his feedback on wine style to create an elegant and lively sparkling wine with a rich, creamy palate featuring flavors of fig and blackberry jam.
"It is always a pleasure working with Carlos to make a wine because like music, wine can also really be about personal expression," notes Mumm Napa winemaker Ludovic Dervin. "Supernatural Rose is very much an expression of Carlos and Mumm Napa – not only is it vibrant and lively, but it is also approachably luxurious."
The Milagro Foundation, the recipient Supernatural’s proceeds, was established by Carlos Santana and his family in 1998. The foundation supports non-profit organizations and programs worldwide working with children and youth in the areas of the arts, education and health. Since its inception, Milagro has granted more than $5 million.
