HEALDSBURG, CA. (June 21) – The Chateau Diana Winery has partnered with
legendary sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer to produce Dr. Ruth's Vin d'Amour, a low
alcohol wine. The new label will consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and White
Zinfandel selections.

The new wine is in line with Dr. Ruth's philosophy of having a glass of wine before
intimate moments. "My philosophy has always been for couples to enjoy a glass of
wine before things get intimate. Wine is a perfect way for couples to relax provided that
like anything else, they do not overindulge. "Wine aids in arousing couples but drinking
too much leads to other things - such as a man losing his ability to perform or a woman
falling asleep before the moment," Dr. Ruth said. She added, "we chose to work with
Chateau Diana Winery because they have been a pioneer in the development and
marketing of low alcohol wines for more than 25 years." Owners Corey and Dawn
Manning point out "the winery's specialty is producing wines with 6% alcohol which is
different from other low alcohol  wines." Dr. Ruth personally selected the varietals
used for her label. Manning adds, "the quality and consistency consumers will find
across all of the Dr. Ruth's Vin d'Amour offerings  is because we are experienced in reducing the alcohol without removing the flavor."

Dr. Ruth's Vin d'Amour will be available nationally beginning in July 2012 and will retail
for $7.99 at wine and spirit retailers and through  the Chateau Diana Winery Tasting Room, or contact 707-433-6993 for ship direct orders.
