Rosé, not made from any specific grape varietal, is a wine that has a color similar to a red wine, but just enough to turn it a shade of pink.  Rosé wines can be produced one of three ways: blending, skin contact, or saignee.  Get the conversation going and ask the tasting room attendant which method they use and why!

The red berry flavors of Rosé are especially refreshing on cool autumn evenings and hot summer days.  This wine style ranges in flavor from delicate, refined and dry to bright and sweet with a hint of creaminess.

Try Livermore Valley Rosé with everything from spicy sauces to crisp, light salads.
