  • The Bountiful Valley

    While enjoying the holiday dinner last night I happened to read a bottle label and that made me think of the Bountiful Valley, which many have written off as a failure. The bottle is Martinelli's Sparking Cider, and here specifically is what it said

    "Established in 1868, S. Martinelli & Company is a fourth generation family business in California's beautiful Pajaro Valley near Monerey Bay, where the cool coastal climate and the fertile soils produce some of the world's most flavorful apples. More then 50 gold medals for product excellence have been awarded to Martinelli's Gold Medal apple juice products, including Sparkling Cider, the non alcoholic version of our founder's original Champagne Cider."

    website http://www.martinellis.com

    THIS would have been the perfect company for the Bountiful Valley. They are a family owned CALIFORNIA business, based on Agriculture, considered best in the business, and hold a special place for most individual's childhood and holiday memories. I think a demonstration of the old apple presses would be fun, in the summer you could have a taste of cold apple juice, in the winter there's hot apple cider.

    Just a thought.

      I was slightly disappointed because the actual bottle labels also had historical photographs and I had hoped to show those as well...

          I'm sure this would have gotten mocked the way my beloved tortilla factory gets mocked.

            It would have been throughly mocked. All the joke about the Disney Mint Julep would have been recycled about the 'champagne'.

                  Martinelli's would have been a good fit, but now that BVF is just Bugsland I don't think they'd be into it.

                        The tortillas were great if you could make it through the whole tour to get them. I'm not sure how it would have worked out because it never was. I started this thread because I sat there at the Thanksgiving table and thought "Wow, what a lost opportunity". Then I flipped the bottle around, poured some cider, and ate some more turkey.
