Rosé
Description

We strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way, practicing sustainable viticulture and utilizing minimally intrusive winemaking techniques. The grapes for our 2017 Rosé are Barbera and were carefully chosen from warm, sunny, sustainably farmed vineyards throughout California.

Tasting Notes

A lovely light mouthwatering wine with flavors of red fruit and strawberry shortcake.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2017 growing season was nearly ideal; the drought is over with the season beginning with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early at a normal pace in many regions, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing red grapes to ripen gradually.
