50% Grenache, 50% Mourvedre


"We vinify our dry rosé from the classic Provençal grapes Mourvèdre and Grenache, picking the cooler sections of the vineyard, early (sometimes even at night), to capture the utmost acidity. Ours is a ROI (Rosé of Intent) rather than rosé-as-a-byproduct-of-red-winemaking, aka saignée: We whole-cluster press and coferment the grapes in stainless steel to make a wine that’s bracing, fruity, and so very refreshing on a hot afternoon at the ranch. It’s Joan’s favorite.
