Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts are two of the most dynamic, young winemakers in California leading the charge for site specific wines with balance and integrity.
From Luschinger Vineyard in California's Lake County, and planted at over 1300ft elevation, this unusual, serious rosé is made from the great Portuguese grape Touriga Nacional. In the Portuguese tradition, whole clusters are trodden before receiving 24 hours of skin contact. Fermentation is with native yeast, without any MLF. Full of delicious wild cherry, Mandarin orange, Indian spice, pink rose, and violet aromas.

Bedrock Wine Co. was started in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson. Working out of a small converted chicken coop in a friend’s backyard, Morgan focused on making personality-filled wines wrought from a small array of thoughtfully farmed vineyards.
Composed of 55% old vine Mataro and 45% old vine Grenache, Ode to Lulu is Bedrock's love letter to Bandol rosé. The Mataro is sourced from the sandy soils and own-rooted vines of Oakley along with a dash of 1920s-planted fruit from the famed Pagani Ranch. The deliciously feral and wild Mataro element is enlivened by Grenache planted in the 1880s at Gibson Ranch in Mendocino’s McDowell Valley. From a color perspective, this is the palest rendition of this wine made in a while, something that belies its richness and density.
In 2001 LA SPINETTA expanded over the borders of Piedmont and acquired 65 hectares of vineyards in Tuscany, between Pisa and Volterra to make three different 100% Sangiovese wines, as Sangiovese is the true ambassador of the Tuscan terrain.
Il Rose is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile. The six hectare vineyard sits at about 300 meters above sea level and enjoys southern exposure. The wine has a salmon color, petal like with orange reflections. On the nose, aromas of sliced peaches, flowers, stones and chalk very complex with full body and round yet agile and dynamic intensity, salty, linear, energetic backbone of acidity, great structure and lovely finish.
Matilde Poggi's organically farmed rose-hued take on a classic Veneto wine is all you could want in a summer bottle. In the Bardolino zone of Veneto, producers work with Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes – the same varieties used in Amarone – to craft their rosato, which is known as Chiaretto. These are in a lighter style, a la Provence rosé from France, and have currant and delicate strawberry flavors, with tangy citrus, a savory elements.
