LEXY’S TOAST WINES is a spectacular line of sparkling wines produced by Lexy Fridell, daughter of winemaker (and actor/clown) of Ronald McDonald fame!) Squire Fridell, of GlenLyon Winery in Sonoma Valley. While sipping a Sparkling Rosé at dinner sailing down the Mediterranean in Greece, Lexy’s creativity (and taste buds!) were suddenly sparked! The Fridell Family winery, www.GlenLyonWinery.com, NEEDED to offer a Sparkling Wine! Lexy decided then and there she was going to produce bubbles for the family winery.
SO…WHO IS LEXY? Lexy is a Bubbly Bubble Enthusiast, Wine Lover, and veteran of Broadway (The Pee-wee Herman Show), many voice-overs and audio books, TV commercials, and is a skilled puppeteer, having performed in Avenue Q in NYC off-Broadway and all over the United States.
WHY IS THERE A PUPPET ON THE LABEL? The label of Lexy’s Toast features a caricature of Lexy and her favorite puppet, Betsy Beastly (created by Jonathan Carlucci.) Artwork by clown artist Karen Gersh. Lexy’s Toast celebrates the Brighter, Bubbly Side of Life! So, don’t burst her bubble! Just Drink It.
GlenLyon Vineyards & Winery is a mini-boutique, family-owned, Scottish-themed, Mom and Pop winery where we specialize in high-end vineyard-designated small lots of wine. We do it all ourselves: from the growing and farming of our 4,631 hand-planted grapevines to the making and marketing of our much-less-than-a-thousand cases of wine. GlenLyon is also our home, nestled in the northern tip of Sonoma Valley between the Sonoma and Mayacamas mountains. Warm days, cool fog-laden evenings of summer provide the perfect environment for growing Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, the only two varieties planted on our two vineyards on our property.
