Strawberry fields forever Recent Press

With prices for Premier cru vineyards in Burgundy approaching $1,000,000 per acre, it's no surprise that few Burgundian vignerons are producing rosé from Pinot Noir grapes. Generally, most French Pinot Noir rosé wines, these days, are from the Loire, where vineyard land is much less expensive. It is still possible from a cost standpoint to produce rosé in Anderson Valley and we love making and drinking rosé, even though red wines from Pinot are more lucrative. This bottling is a cuvée from two regions within Anderson Valley. The majority is from Navarro's Hammer Olsen block in Philo and about 10% is from our Boonville vineyards. Philo is closer to the ocean so it's a little cooler, producing wines with rose petal aromas and luscious strawberry flavors; Boonville produces fruit flavors more reminiscent of raspberries. Serve with Laychee cheese on a crostini, topped with a strawberry and tarragon leaf, for a picnic treat.

The rotating head has sixteen spouts; the carousel speed is adjusted so that when a bottle reaches the position where it started as empty, it is full of rosé; an empty bottle replaces the full bottle which continues down the line to be corked.
