Get Picnic ReadyThe weather is heating up, which means it’s time to grab the rosé.
A few of our seasonal favorites include:
2020 CUTTER CASCADIA ‘STRAWBERRY MULLET’ ZINFANDEL ROSÉThis is a sustainably farmed mature-vine Zinfandel rosé from the Columbia Valley AVA. The warm, sunny climate and coarse loam soil allow the fickle Zinfandel grape to thrive. Juicy and tart red fruit gives way to mouthwatering acidity making this one of our favorite rosé of the season.
Division Winemaking Company is a Portland, Oregon-based winery founded in 2010 by Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe, inspired by the wineries of Loire, Beaujolais, Burgundy, and the Northern Rhone where they first learned winemaking and viticulture. They work with well-farmed terroir expressive vineyards, many of which are organic and/or biodynamic.
This rosé is crisp & refreshing with notes of red fruit, cool watermelon, and a creamy finish making this one of our favorite go-to rosé of the season.
Los Bermejos is a winery based on the island of Lanzarote – only 125 km from the African coastline – owned and run by the passionate winemaker Ignacio Valdera. This is one of our favorite island rosés.
This is the ultimate summer quencher. It’s a blend of Trollinger, Zweigelt, Spätburgunder and Portugieser, full of vibrant red fruit including Rainier cherry and wild strawberry, along with a touch of musky melon, a hint of bitter orange peel, and a streak of chalky minerality.
The story is just as cool.
Before starting his 10-hectare family winery in the municipality of Kernen im Remstal, 11km east of Stuttgart, in Southwest Germany, Jochen Beurer was a European BMX Champion. Looking beyond his own vineyards, Jochen created a platform in 2001 for quality-focused, young growers to exchange ideas, Junges Schwaben (Young Swabians) now includes more than 24 local wine growers. For his own vines, the transition towards organic farming began in 2003 and all his vineyards were certified organic in 2009 (EcoVin) and biodynamic in 2012. One of Jochen’s recent projects is among his most ambitious. The goal of the Wengert vineyard is the preservation of regionally endangered medieval grape cultivars (Heunisch, Räuschling, Frühroter Malvasier, Gelber Orleans, Gewürztraminer, Veltliner Rosa, Scheuchner, Portugieser, Urban, Affentaler among others). The project is a wide-ranging communal and collaborative effort, as well as a showcase for respectful viticulture, allowing local flora and fauna to thrive.
