2022 Out of the Closet, Red Wine, California

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show

Get ready to sashay and slay with the newest addition to Tank Garage Winery's collection, Out of the Closet! This limited-edition red wine is more than just a drink, dreamer, it's a celebration of love, diversity, and Pride!

Our bold and fruity 2022 California Red wine is a tantalizing blend of 70% Ruché and 30% Barbera, guaranteed to make your taste buds tingle and your heart sing. Taste the tartness of cranberries and strawberries, the sweetness of red apples and raspberries, and the tanginess of sour patch kids. You'll also notice a subtle stemminess and green quality that evokes the freshness of spring and the dewy essence of wet rocks. With low tannin, this wine is chillable, easy to drink and pairs perfectly with any occasion.

And the label art, darlings, the label art is simply divine! It's designed by the talented Hizze Fletcher King, whose art is grounded in queer-core culture and celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. Her masterpiece for Out of the Closet, Closet Door #2, is a powerful symbol of coming out and living your truth.

Not only is Out of the Closet a delicious wine, but it's also a wine with a purpose. We're proud to donate $1 per bottle to Out of the Closet Thrift Store, a foundation founded in 1990 to help raise funds and awareness for AIDS Healthcare Foundation.  So, whether you're voguing in the ballroom or dancing in the streets with a bottle of this mouth-watering red, you can do it knowing that you're making a real difference in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Crafted with love and passion from Ruché and Barbera grapes from the Siletto Vineyard and Sierra de Montserrat Vineyard, this wine is a tribute to the fearless and innovative ballroom culture. Blending two unlikely varieties, we created a wine that is as bold and distinctive as the queens who grace the ballroom floor. With meticulous foot stomping for the Ruché and extended maceration for the Barbera, this wine delivers a truly unforgettable taste experience. Aged for 6 months in used French oak, it's ready to be sipped now through 2028 or beyond if you're feeling the Italian wine vibes.

And honey, when you drink this wine, you'll be coming out too. Coming out with boldness, sass, and style. So raise a glass to the dreamers, the crazy, the unique, and the bold. To the artists, the freaks, the lovers, and the ones that never quite fit in. To our friends and family, our queens, our kings, and everyone in between. Out of the Closet is here, and we're proud to celebrate Pride with you.
