“Barefoot has supported and advocated for the LGBTQ+ community for more than three decades and will continue to be an ally of the community and what Pride stands for,” said Barefoot marketing VP Anna Bell. “We support inclusion of all, and our LGBTQ+ initiatives exist precisely so we can contribute to creating safer, more welcoming spaces for the community.”

The Barefoot portfolio is made up of 20 still and 11 sparkling wines. Early last year, the brand branched out into hard seltzers with a four-strong range.

According to brand value consultancy firm Brand Finance, Barefoot is the seventh most valuable Champagne & wine brand worldwide.
