One of the most flavorful and lovely rosés that we’ve ever made, this is a perfect wine for everything from on its own as an aperitif to a great wine for a Spring or Summer BBQ.  
The Barbera from Heringer Farms is grown in a flat, gravelly vineyard with great weather conditions, and we were able to pick the grapes when they were an ideal ripeness for making rosé.
This rosé is made from a block of Barbara that is specifically set aside for us to make this rosé wine, from a vineyard in the Clarksburg appellation where hot days are mitigated by the cool breeze and fog rolling in from the San Francisco Bay.  The wine has a beautiful pale color, great aromatics, and a lovely velvety texture—perfect for drinking on warm days and as an accompaniment to a wide range of foods.
Since these grapes were picked for rosé, we were able to pick them at a perfect ripeness. On arrival at the winery the grapes are gently destemmed and pressed in our membrane press. We allowed enough skin contact to ensure a lovely salmon color. Pressing rosés on their own (rather than “bleeding” the rose from a tank of red grapes) is a way to make the finest, most subtle rosés. We fermented the wine on its native yeast, to obtain a distinctive wine that reflects its vineyard terroir.  The wine was quickly bottled just 5 months after fermentation to keep its freshness and bright fruit flavors.
