Our Uncommon Rosé Collection

We’ve been Rosé fans for years; some might say we're tickled pink! There’s something uniquely refreshing about rosé wine, something perfectly suited to the warmer months (although we like Rosé year-round).

We have about a dozen Rosé available online, with many more in the store.

Our Process
Our selection process begins in the depths of winter. Now that Rosé has become more popular (some would say trendy, we’re just glad others have caught on!) there’s a lot more on the market to choose from. That doesn’t mean they’re all great expressions of what they could be, so we spend countless hours poring through the wines well in advance to hand-pick the ones we really want. Believe it or not, that process still leaves a wide selection - we’ll have around 80 different rosé wines this year. But we passed over some of the bigger labels, the ones that seem to focus on marketing as much as winemaking, to find more unique and smaller production offerings.

We look forward to sharing this season's finds with you! And when you like one of our Rosé, snap a picture and Tweet, Instagram or Facebook it with the hashtag....
