The gods have nectar.  Winemakers have rosé.   

In the Vineyard

Earthy, bright, bursting... Ambrosé reflects its California origins. Late-ripening Syrah kissed at the confluence of three Sonoma creeks, with a complement of complex Mourvèdre cooled by marine fogs rolling around Mount Diablo. 

to the Cellar

A light touch in the cellar makes for rosé touched by light. Start with a gentle press, brief skin contact, & slow ferment. Stainless steel preserves natural acidity, while a bit of neutral French oak rounds out the mid-palate.

On the Table

Crisp, cool, clear... pairs well with an afternoon breeze. Delicate enough for a picnic blanket: charcuterie, soft cheese, & roasted peppers. Complex enough for a table cloth: ginger pork, garlic chicken, & oysters à la mignonette. 

We started with a question:

"What is your favorite rosé?"

 

And found... most couldn't answer. It didn't matter whether they were winemakers, wine savants, or wine sippers. For red & white wine, most could name varietals, regions, labels. But only rarely for rosé.

A favorite didn't seem to exist. And so, we set out to create one.

Crafted as a winemaker's rosé, Ambrosé is not a blend of red and white, not a byproduct of another wine, not a bleed off concentrated red. Farmed, harvested, & cellared to be the very wine bottled before you, to be a rosé worth answering for.

 
  Thankful for the watch these bees keep over our Mourvèdre, and for the elegant logo they lend to our bottle... pay back for the years of shots Vincent endured to overcome his deadly allergy to them.
