In August of 2012, just prior to harvest, a close friend in the wine business and I travelled through the Southern Rhone region of France.  Towards the tail end of the trip, we migrated south into Provence.  The following few days spent on the shores of the Mediterranean eating mussels and drinking bottle after bottle of Rose in the village of Cassis and enjoying lunches of roasted chicken with more rose in the small village of Correns were some of the most influential days in my life as far as wine is concerned.  I came back from that trip committed to making “true” rose. This is not a saignee or “bleed” of Pinot Noir or Zinfandel; the grapes were grown and picked specifically for this wine.  Our goal start to finish, is to create a wine that some how brings the feelings and flavors of the rose and mussels in the open air restaurant in Cassis to our homes, back yards, and tables here.
