Here’s the Scoop! Humphry Slocombe and Domaine Carneros Team Up Once Again for Rosé Inspired Ice Cream Flavor

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Just in time for Rosé season, San Francisco small-batch ice cream brand Humphry Slocombe - known for its imaginative ingredient-driven flavors - has partnered with the Napa Valley's first name in top quality sparkling wine, Domaine Carneros, to revisit its smash hit "Rosé All Day" flavor, this time as a dairy-based ice cream.

This year's iteration of "Rosé All Day" is a deliciously refreshing Rosé ice cream made with Domaine Carneros 2018 Brut Rosé and a hint of lemon. This boozy ice cream is the perfect complement to backyard cookouts, afternoons by the pool or beach, or anywhere you want to have #RoséAllDay this summer.

Humphry Slocombe Co-Founder and Chef Jake Godby says, "Pink bubbles make everything better, and 'Rosé All Day' is like summer in a cup or cone."

"We love this really delightful interpretation of our Brut Rosé, and we know our diehard rosé fans, and rosé newbies alike, will go crazy for it," commented Domaine Carneros' CEO, Remi Cohen.

The 2022 "Rosé All Day" ice cream is available the entire month of June for $11/pint at Humphry Slocombe's original scoop shop in the Mission District, as well as at their Ferry Building location and their locations in Oakland and Berkeley; in addition, the flavor is available as of June 2, 2022 via Goldbelly as part of a special 4-pack, offered for $94.95 (including tax and shipping; available while supplies last).

"When I heard about the work that Jameson Humane does for animals and the planet, I knew that I had to be a part of this year's WineaPAWlooza. Being a lifelong vegetarian and activist; sustainable and vegan or vegetarian-friendly causes are extremely important to me. What's even more unique about the work we do at Bellissima is that we go beyond the bottle - we are committed to giving back to the planet and supporting animals and communities in need," said Christie Brinkley.

The legendary Animal Parade will be led by celebrity wine auctioneer and personality, Fritz Hatton, followed by a delectable plant-based menu designed and executed by Goatlandia.

"This year's WineaPAWlooza is bigger, better, and more important than ever. Not only do we have the best-of-the-best, most generous vintners and winemakers sharing their most sought-after wines, but we take our mission to the next level with true innovators and disruptors in the food and wine industry who join us to share their solutions for the future and to benefit all of us, the animals, and the planet. The time is now to innovate, learn, share, and enjoy all that our wine country and its community have to offer," said Jameson Humane Co-Founder and WineaPAWlooza Co-Chair, Monica Stevens.

"I'm thrilled that we are back in person for WineaPAWlooza 2022! Our Friday night format will showcase everything Jameson Humane does not just on behalf of animals but also for the people and the entire planet. Having Christie Brinkley at both nights, lending her star power to WineaPAWlooza, truly shows us how the great work that Jameson does is being noticed nationally. The funds we will raise on Saturday are more important now than ever and our amazing vintners and donors will make the future brighter through their generous contributions," said Vanessa Conlin MW, WineaPAWlooza Co-Chair.

Parallel Napa Valley Promotes Adrienne D.A. Smith to General Manager / Partner

NAPA VALLEY, Calif. -- The partners of Parallel Napa Valley are pleased to announce the promotion of their General Manager Adrienne D.A. Smith to General Manager and Partner. After four years with the company, Adrienne has overseen strong growth for the brand in her role overseeing marketing, hospitality, sales and operations with an innovative and high energy approach. She was appointed by the partners to oversee their next stage of growth in 2018 and quickly moved from Director of Hospitality and Marketing to the General Manager role six months into her tenure.

With an MBA in Finance as well as an Associate's Degree in Culinary Arts from the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, Smith has brought to Parallel Napa Valley a sound business mind and a savvy knack for wine hospitality. During her tenure, Direct-to-Consumer Sales has grown by nearly 200% while membership in their Black Diamond Wine Clubs has increased by nearly four-fold.

Parallel Napa Valley utilizes the stylish, appointment-only tasting rooms and wine-making facility at Brasswood Napa Valley, just a few miles north of St. Helena in the beautiful Napa Valley. Smith works closely with internationally renowned Winemaker Philippe Melka (who has been with Parallel Napa Valley since its inception in 1999) and his Atelier Melka Team in order to best translate and promote his inimitable style to Parallel Wines devotees.

Smith also takes Parallel Wines on the road fairly often, meeting with wine club members, working closely with chefs on pairing menus with the wines and attending high touch marketing events that showcase the wines.

Upcoming events and important dates include:

* High Museum Atlanta Auction, March 24-26, Atlanta, GA: Parallel Napa Valley is pleased to participate once again alongside their Atelier Melka colleagues in this event which raises critical funds to provide educational programs and various outreach efforts to local youth and to consistently deliver world-class art exhibitions that make Atlanta proud.

* 33rd Annual California Winemasters, May 13, Burbank, CA: This extraordinary event showcases 57 international chefs and 75 of California's finest wineries. "Winemasters" has raised more than $34 million in support of the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

* Parallel Napa Valley Bud Break Party, May 21, St. Helena, CA: Celebrating the spring release of their limited production 2020 Napa Valley Chardonnay. In addition, the winners of the 2018 Name the Vintage Contest will be presented with an etched 3L of the 2018 Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "Captivator" - a black diamond ski run at Mt. Rose Ski Resort, Tahoe, CA. Additional vintages of Parallel Wines will be poured along with amazing dishes from the Brasswood Kitchen, plus music and fun on the outdoor courtyard lawn! Tickets are $150 and can be purchased here:

Of Smith's promotion, Park City, Utah based partner Mac MacQuoid stated, "Adrienne has consistently overdelivered in her role as GM of our winery, adapting creatively and ahead of the curve during a challenging yet exciting time for wine sales. Her programming ideas, sales drive, deep knowledge of food and beverage and strong hospitality gene are just the right alchemy to take our brand forward. She deserves this recognition, and as a close group of partners, we are thrilled to see her succeed."

Smith says, "I am beyond excited to take on an even deeper role with Parallel Napa Valley and its founding partners. We have collectively put in a lot of work together over the past four years (and had a lot of fun!), and it's rewarding and extremely humbling that they feel so confident in my abilities to carry the brand forward as a next generation vintner. I am proud to serve in this role and continue their 23+ year legacy in Napa Valley with the Atelier Melka Team."

About Parallel Napa Valley

Parallel Napa Valley is an artisan winery producing less than 700 cases annually of top-quality Napa Valley designated Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, created by Philippe Melka (and his Atelier Melka Team), well regarded by leading critics as one of the pre-eminent wine consultants in the U.S. and beyond. The winery was established originally as a partnership in 1999 by close friends who felt the concept of their dream represented their parallel lives in Deer Valley (in Park City, Utah) where they have spent more than 40+ years, and Napa Valley, their second home.

The Parallel Napa Valley label captures the essence of the lines carved by skis on the first run of the day, and the reserve wines are named for famous ski runs. In addition to making a great wine, the partners of Parallel Napa Valley are dedicated philanthropists and have made it a priority to extend their wine and its success to support their communities and various charities in Utah, California and across the country.
