OF BIKE RIDES AND A SHARED LOVE FOR WINE

“The glory of friendship is not in the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is in the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If there’s something that binds the Franzia Executive Cycling Team, it is that they have a shared love for wine, sports, and a friendship that keeps them riding together. Just as Franzia wine is an easy-to-drink, everyday wine, the Franzia Team was formed to celebrate the daily successes of the executive life.

Team Franzia is composed of forty-four middle-age individuals composed of doctors, business owners, lawyers, and other professions – all successful executives who value health and fitness. Even with their busy schedules, they are able to hold group rides around Metro Manila at least two to three times a week. Road biking keeps them in shape, develops their resistance, endurance, increases their cardiovascular fitness level and metabolism. It is their preferred form of exercise which allows them to manage stress and perform at their best in the work place.

On October 17 to 18, Team Franzia will be joining the most-awaited cycling event of the year – Tour of Matabungkay 2014. The team has been joining this prestigious event since 2010. Other tournaments they have joined include Tour of Friendship in Thailand, Tour of Subic, and Tour of Baguio to name a few. As Team Franzia, they share the same values of sportsmanship, camaraderie, and passion for keeping active.

Franzia is America’s No. 1 selling wine brand. Founded in 1906 by Giuseppe and Teresa Franzia, the winery is located in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Over 30 million cases of Franzia are sold each year and over 3 million glasses are consumed every day, in the U.S. alone. Franzia wine variants include California Red, Chillable Red, and Sunset Blush in 750ml and 3 Liters. Franzia boasts of a unique packaging as it comes in a Winetap. It has a spout with an inner pouch to prevent oxidation, keeping Franzia fresh for four weeks after opening. The Smart Tap minimizes spillage and provides convenience for several wine occasions. The three liter is equivalent to 4 bottles and makes 24 glasses.

Franzia California Red is a smooth, easy to enjoy, medium bodied red wine. Its fresh berry aromas with hints of black pepper and spice give a nice introduction to the wine. Take a sip and enjoy ripe blackberry and cherry flavors which give way to a crisp and clean finish. Made from premium California grapes, it is recommended with a wide range of beef, chicken, pork and pasta dishes. Franzia Chillable Red is a light-bodied red wine that is made to be served chilled.

It has more body and flavor than the Franzia Sunset Blush variant, but is softer than traditional red wines. Franzia Sunset Blush has a delicate pink hue with a sweet strawberry flavor. It is a refreshing, light and easy wine and best served chilled. Franzia is exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation. It is available in all major supermarkets, grocery stores, select restaurants, and bars nationwide.
