Are you ready to welcome the New Year? Toast the arrival of 2024 with the new Zozobra 100 Sparkling Wine!
The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe is proud to announce that Gruet Winery, a leading domestic sparkling wine brand based in New Mexico, is the official sparkling wine sponsor of the 100th Burning of Zozobra. The celebration of the Zozobra Centennial will take place for the entire year leading up to the 100-yesr burn on Friday, August 30, 2024.
The Zozobra Centennial Gruet bottle will be available exclusively at Gruet New Mexico Tasting Room locations in Santa Fe and Albuquerque locations throughout the Centennial year.
“Zozobra and Gruet are a perfect match, both rooted in New Mexico and both celebrating cherished cultural traditions,” says Zozobra Event Chair Ray Sandoval. “Visionaries like Will Shuster, Zozobra’s creator, and Gilbert Gruet, the founder of Gruet Winery, epitomize the adventurous spirit that has animated New Mexico for centuries, and their mutual heritage lives on to inspire other creative souls.”
Zozobra, also known as “Old Man Gloom,” is a historic cultural event that takes place in Santa Fe, New Mexico, organized and hosted by the nonprofit Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe, the city’s oldest service organization, established in April of 1921.
Founded in 1984, Gruet Winery specializes in Méthode Champenoise sparkling wines. Family owned and run, the New Mexico-based winery produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-based sparkling wines and a small collection of still wines, with roots originating from Gilbert Gruet’s Champagne house in Bethon, France. More than 35 vintages later, Gruet Winery has achieved unprecedented acclaim and remains a favorite of the nation’s top sommeliers.
A sparkling wine just for Zozobra? What a great way to celebrate any special occasion during Zozobra’s centennial year!
