A blast of fresh, ripe strawberry, raspberry zing and lemon zest make a lively start to this spunky dry rosé! Crafted from two local Central Coast Pinot Noir vineyards, it’s rich like a creamsicle® and succulent like a watermelon candy; bright, refreshing and full of flavor, it’s the perfect anytime sipper.
Wine Notes
Finally we received a decent rainfall after 4 years of intense drought. The growing season was close to ideal although a littler earlier than average. The Vin Gris is comprised of two vineyard sources right here in San Benito County not far from Calera; these lots were specifically dedicated, harvested and pressed to make this wine.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were pressed directly into a stainless steel fermentation tank. The wine was fermented at cold temperatures to retain vibrancy of the fruit. After fermentation the wine was racked and cold settled for two months to inhibit malo-lactic fermentation. We bottled the wine mid-January.
