Description

It’s Back – but not for long! One of our most popular wines of the year – Grenache Rose – is back and we’re giving Wine Club members a pre-release opportunity to stock your cellars for summer. Remember, last year’s release sold out before August!! Don’t wait on this delicious treat.

This refreshing Rosé possesses beautiful aromatics of guava, watermelon, passion fruit, papaya and cherry, an enticing vibrant light pink color and crisp fruit flavors of cherry, cranberry, guava, watermelon and strawberry with a touch of rose water. A seasonal wine, we craft this with warm weather in mind from Grenache grown on Rodney's Vineyard & Camp Four Vineyard, both located in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The perfect spring and summertime wine, refreshing and aromatic.  Stock up now, this wine sells out quickly!  

Hint: Pair this Rosé with your Easter ham - the fruit notes of the wine will be refreshing with the saltiness of the ham!
