&pizza Launches Its Own Wines Perfectly Paired for Pizza


&pizza, wine program, wine, pizzeria, pizza businessWASHINGTON, DC (6/11/15) Here is another spot to add to your happy hour rotation. &pizza, the first Washington, DC-based fast casual pizza company, known for its trademark ampersand, gourmet handmade pies, inventive flavor combinations, localized store design and dedication to the communities they serve, announces the launch of &WINE. The brand’s custom red and white wines are the perfect complements to their pies and will be available by the glass and bottle beginning Thursday, June 11 at all DC locations.

“We are always looking to elevate the experience for our guests,” says &pizza President and CEO Michael Lastoria. “Adding custom wines to our menu puts us another step closer toward becoming an all-inclusive brand. Like our carefully selected craft beers and housemade sodas, &WINE goes great with our pizzas.”

The two wine options include &pizza Central Coast Red Wine and &pizza Central Coast Chardonnay. The red wine has hints of rich, dark fruit, firm tannins and a clean finish, pairing it well with &pizza’s signature Farmer’s Daughter, Maverick and Kiss + Fire pizzas.

With tastes of candied orange blossom, vanilla oak-inspired spices and pineapple creating nice minerality and vibrant acidity, the Chardonnay has a fruit-filled finish that complements &pizza’s Moonstruck, Gnarlic and Backyard Garden pizzas. Both wines are available for $20 a bottle or $5.45 a glass before tax.

&WINE will be available at all 6 of their DC shops: Brookland, Dupont South, E Street, H Street, K Street and U Street.

 

About &pizza

Founded in 2012 in Washington, D.C.’s historic H Street NE corridor, &pizza set out to create a different kind of pizza shop – one where experience is the focal point, and every shop reflects the culture and people of its neighborhood. Evidence of their disruptive success can be found in the organizational culture of its employees (the brand calls them Tribe Members), its rapid expansion and numerous recognitions, including Best Pizza and Best Vegetarian in Washington D.C. &pizza currently owns and operates twelve locations in the Washington D.C. area with three more locations expected to open in 2015.
