A unique and fresh take on domestic rosé, made from Touriga Nacional? This Portuguese variety isn't planted widely across the United States unless a Port-style wine is being made, so it's extra special to have this made into a rosé! Aromas of lilies, citrus oil, radishes, and cantaloupe are accompanied by flavors of light red fruit, minerality, and honeydew melon on the palate. Light (only 11.5% ABV) and crisp, you'll be sure to make many friends pouring this!

Rosé lovers, rejoice. This is a Rosé to be chilled, to be savored, to be remembered. Coming to us from a single vineyard in Lake County AVA, known for It's volcanic and obsidian soils, this is a quite dry, light wine chock full of minerality. Direct pressed from Touriga Nacional grapes, (the main grape in Port) whatever this wine lacks in body it delivers in ethereal, otherworldly aromas and flavors. Aromas of frozen strawberry and white mushroom give way to a palate with hints of canteloupe, tangerine skin and flinty mineral.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
