Barefoot Refresh Celebrates Spritzer Season By Taking Americans
Out To The Ball Game
This spring, over 40 million Americans – nearly 13 percent of the total population – are expected to attend a Minor League Baseball game. More than 160 ballparks will play host to baseball fans looking to experience America’s favorite pastime, cheer for the home team and enjoy the concessions. In celebration of Spritzer Season – the time of year when weather heats up, memories are made, and cold, refreshing drinks are in demand – Barefoot Refresh is hitting one out of the park for a number of Minor League Baseball fans.
To kick off Spritzer Season, Barefoot Refresh will be buying out a part of five Minor League Baseball parks, giving away thousands of game tickets to those in the surrounding communities. These celebratory game nights will be complete with Barefoot Refresh sampling stations, wine and food pairings, one-of-a-kind photo opportunities and plenty of swag. For fans looking to get a better view of the action, a ‘Refresh Your Seat’ digital upgrade challenge will offer attendees the opportunity to try their luck on social media for the chance to score a better seat. Fans across the country who cannot make it out to the ballpark can share in the excitement by using #SpritzerSeason to showcase how they are celebrating this refreshing time of year.
“Like Minor League Baseball, Barefoot Refresh recognizes the importance of building strong bonds in local communities across the country,” said Jen Wall, Winemaker for Barefoot Wine & Bubbly. “We look forward to introducing Barefoot Refresh and its unique versatility to baseball fans at Spritzer Season events across the country and knocking expectations out of the ballpark.”
Barefoot Refresh is a refreshingly vibrant wine-based spritzer, inspired by the classic spritzer style. Specifically created for the ever-increasing number of fun summer occasions, Barefoot Refresh is often served over ice and perfect for casual occasions and get-togethers, such as backyard barbecues or a day at the ballpark.
