Winery Notes:
Riviera Rosé, called "Riviera" as Santa Barbara is known as the American Riviera based on its' southern facing, Mediterranean climate. This is the perfect wine to accompany the picnics, dinners, and BBQs. Enjoy Riviera Rosé on the lake or by the pool. You can take this can of Rosé just about anywhere. Our winemaker, Doug worked at a winery in the south of France for 4 years where this style of rosé is made & Margerum Wine Company makes the private label Rosé for Auberge de Soleil and other top properties.

*Grenache and Syrah picked specifically for our rosé

*The grapes are crushed and immediately pressed to stainless steel tanks for a long cold fermentation

*The wine is blended with various lots of Counoise, Cinsaut, and other Grenache vineyards that were saignéed. Saignée is a winemaking process where we bleed off a portion of slightly pink juice from a red must right after crush.

*Maturation: 97% Stainless Steel and 3% Barrel Fermented

Vintage Conditions:
It was a warm dry summer with varying heat spikes and we had veraison quite early. The grapes ripened earlier than usual which is great for grapes destined for rosé. We want fruit just approaching ripeness with higher acid and a lower brix.
