“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.

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

CELLAR
All the grapes are destemmed and the juice for Rosé is separated immediately after destemming to keep color and tannin extraction to a minimum. 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.
