R.W. Knudsen's 50th Anniversary Review and Giveaway

Sparkling beverages are one of life's little pleasures. The sweet drink accompanied by a layer of refreshing and almost addictive bubbles is just the best!



With a strong tradition for integrity, innovation and variety, the R.W. Knudsen Family brand proudly marks its 50th anniversary this year They are committed to producing healthful fruit products that have never contained artificial flavors, preservatives or added sugar. The R.W. Knudsen Family has established itself as a favorite organic and natural choice in households across the U.S.

I had not previously had the opportunity to try any of R.W. Knudsen's beverages, but now I had the great pleasure to!

I was sent a commemorative bottle of R.W. Knudsen's sparkling grape juice celebrating their 50th anniversary!



The bottle is very fancy and it feels like I'm about to have a glass of champagne on New Year's, but it's really grape juice! The juice was very sweet, a little too sweet for me though. It was still tasty though. The color of the grape juice was a very deep and beautiful purple. The drink fizzed up nicely and the bubbles were definitely in abundance. This is certainly a grown up version of the classic child favorite of grape juice. I do like that the beverage had no added sugar, preservatives or any artificial flavors. This is very important to me. This would be a fun drink to share with friends or family over a delicious meal.

This bottle is not available in stores anywhere, so you have an awesome opportunity to win a product that isn't available at all to buy!

  134. I think I will have to go with Champagne as being my favorite sparkling beverage, though I usually have a California version of Champagne so I guess it is really just sparkling wine since it isn't from the Champagne region of France?
