Winemaker Notes:

We’re very serious about this festive and flavorful dry wine. Quality Rose starts with grapes grown specifically for this purpose. At Barnard Griffin, the best Roses are a deliberate result of careful winemaking, not an incidental byproduct of red production. Our Rose is conceived in the vineyard at pruning and matured to be crisp, lean and fruity. We are very proud of this wine and its string of awards going back to our first bottling in 2002. We are thrilled to announce that our 2015 vintage Rose won the Pink Sweepstake Award for Best Rose in the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Food Pairing:

A serious, dry, food-friendly Rose that can accompany a broad range of cuisine choices or is equally outstanding as a stand-alone sipper. Our Rose pairs well with a wide variety of foods and hence makes it an excellent choice for dinner parties with friends and family.
