Horizon Beverage Co. launched the arrival of Cupcake LightHearted at Haxton’s Tollgate Liquor in Warwick on August 31. Cupcake Vineyards’ Cupcake LightHearted, the brand’s newest addition to its lineup of premium, award-winning California wines, offers 80 calories, 8% ABV and less than 1 gram of sugar per 5-ounce serving. Vegan, gluten-free, low-carb and low-sugar, Cupcake LightHearted is available in four varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Rosé and Pinot Noir. “I created Cupcake LightHearted after realizing there wasn’t a lower-calorie and lower-alcohol wine option on the market that was delicious and complemented my active lifestyle,” said Jessica Tomei, Winemaker, Cupcake Vineyards. “I’m an avid runner, and some days I want something that’s lower in calories and alcohol but doesn’t sacrifice flavor. Cupcake LightHearted checks all the boxes.”
