Romance is in the air and spring is on its way! The birds are chirping, and the mustard is thriving in the Napa vineyards. The theme of love shines with romance & rosé. Romance & rosé act like a temptress, softly seducing the senses like a fervent kiss on the lips. Stepping into pink when it comes to wine and champagne is an adventure into a bright & refreshing taste, full of delightful nuances, and often lower alcohol. Pink is the color of young love, and what better way to embrace it than this amorous time of year.

Three rosés designed to take your breath away… The Kiss: Willm Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé This sparkling wine, created in Alsace, uses the same labor-intensive process used to make champagne. Derived from pinot noir grapes, it’s warm pink hue and well-rounded bubbliness are reminiscent of a first kiss. The taste of red berries and subtle, inviting notes will keep you coming back for more. Priced at just $17 a bottle, it’s an affordable luxury perfect for the everyday celebration.
The Seduction: Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rosé is the equivalent of a symphony on your palate. Comprised of 100% Pinot Noir from 12 cru (top quality vineyards) this is perfect for occasions of note. Its color is an intense salmon hue, the effervescence is perfectly balanced and the finish exquisitely long and dry. Dreamy. The essence of berries, raspberry, strawberry and black cherry takes you to another realm. This iconic champagne pairs well with love, romance, and occasions of all types. Priced at $99/bottle.
The Muse: Falesco Vitiano Rosato 2015 from Umbria is a delightful answer to rosé. This highly quaffable wine is dry and crisp. The red and black fruits with aromatic florals are bright & reviving. Strawberries beckon! Breathtakingly refreshing and inviting contemplation as you sip. The Rosato is a blend of Merlot 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Sangiovese 30%, Aleatico 10%. Perfect for sipping solo and with grilled vegetables and light seafood dishes. Affordably priced at $12/bottle.
