Forbes Award Rosé

Rosé is as popular as ever, and now with the world of stress we have found ourselves in, this playful, pretty wine style is the perfect choice for many reasons. Jim Laughren, certified wine educator and author of 50 Ways to Love Wine More, explains, “Rosé is easy to enjoy; no one needs a so-called mature palate. Rosé is a food wine par excellence; no one needs rules or pairing advice. Just chill, pour, and enjoy. And probably …
repeat.” In other words, don’t overthink it. We all have enough to think about these days.

There is a world of rosé to choose from and while Provence, France is still the global standard for style, Laughren notes that “now shelves are increasingly stocked with examples from the Loire, the Rhone valley, Spain, Italy, Austria, Chile, Napa, and New York. We’re seeing rosés made of varieties from Malbec to Zweigelt to Negroamaro, and, new to the scene, rosé cider and even rosé beer.”

This organic rosé was the fan favorite for its playful watermelon, strawberry, and peach notes and a gentle bit of fzz on the palate. Crisp, dry and playful, like a soft berry popsicle. $ 12,99

Pruning the vineyards

During the coldest part of the year, it´s usually January while the vines are “hibernating”, we will carry out the pruning.
