Made using 82% Pinot noir, 10% Pinot gris, 8% Chardonnay, winemaker Rachel Rose first separated the fresh, hand-picked fruit into two batches. By whole cluster-pressing just some of it, she was able to incorporate more tannins and color into the juice. The second batch was destemmed and spent 2 days soaking before being pressed. This technique infused more color and tannins from the skins and seeds, but not the stems. Click here to read more about tannins in our Wine 101 post.

The two batches were then combined and fermented in both French oak barrels and amphora eggs. Once the rosé was finished, each individual bottle was carbonated on the bottling line and fitted with a crowncap, creating a limited supply of fun pink wine you don’t want to miss! Follow this link to read more about the carbonation process, as well as how other types of bubbles are made.
