“Bien Nacido Vineyard”
Santa Maria Valley, California

Mondeuse has its roots in the Savoie, the region of France bordering Switzerland. Mondeuse from the Savoie is a juicy red wine with deep color and peppery flavor. These characteristics make this grape a good choice for Rosé production.

The Mondeuse is grown at Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. Mondeuse ripens late in this cooler growing region.

All the grapes are destemmed. The Rose juice is settled over night to keep the fermentation clean (to avoid any leesy flavors in the Rosé). The juice goes through primary and malo-lactic fermentation in clean, neutral barrels. After a short 4 month barrel aging the wine is bottled.
