Bodegas Ostatu Rioja Rosado 2017

Regular price: $17.99

Sale Price: $13.99

Light and fresh, this is a lovely rosado from a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha & Viura. Berry flavored and scented, this wine is all about ease and simplicity. It’s a brilliant aperitif and a refreshing al fresco selection.

Chateau Pigoudet Première Rosé, Coteaux d’Aix en Provence 2017

Regular Price $14.99

Sale price $11.99

This blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cinsault is the quintessential Provencal Rosé; bright, refreshing, aromatic and crisp. It has more length than it gets credit for…and to characterize it as ‘merely’ a summer sipper diminishes the the overall quality of the wine.

Domaine Pellé Menetou-Salon Rosé 2017

Regular Price $22.99

Sale price $17.99

This wine of 100% Pinot Noir is made to be crisp, fresh and friendly. But lurking beneath its easy and delightful flavors are hints of the chalky Kimmeridgian soil that gives wines from here their great depth and finish. Anyone hating on this wine is a miserable human being.

Le Fraghe ‘Rodon’ Bardolino Chiaretto 2017

Regular Price $16.99

Sale price $12.99

This classic blend of Corvina and Rondinella is just delicious; floral and strawberry aromas lead into fuller than expected flavors of barely ripe berry and savory earthiness. It finishes crisply and long; supporting whatever is being served. This is one of the most versatile wines on the market.

Daniel Boccard Pinot Rosé Bugey 2017

Regular Price $18.99

Sale price $14.99

Daniel Boccard is a former Alps Grand Prix racing champion who retired to his family farm to make wine from their almost Alpine vineyards. This wine of Pinot Noir, is fuller and richer than one would expect, as the grapes are picked relatively late, then vinified almost completely dry. Bright fruit abounds in this delicious wine

Domaine de Terrebrune Bandol Rosé 2017

Regular price: $37.99

Sale Price: $29.99

Terrebrune’s rosé is comprised of 50% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and 25% Cinsault, and the wine is a blend of 50% ‘direct-press’ rosé (i.e. fruit is destemmed, gently pressed, and the skins immediately removed) and 50% saignée-method rosé (i.e. wine ‘bled off’ during the early stages of a red-wine fermentation). The wine then spends about 6-8 months in used French oak barrels, an unusual move for rosé that contributes to its uncommon depth and complexity.It’s dense and rich with bold fruit (melon and berry) intermingled with herbs and stoney notes. Wow!
