Windsor, CA – Bricoleur Vineyards, a beautiful new winery, tasting room, culinary showplace, retreat and event venue located in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, is excited to announce the release of two rosé wines for spring: its 2019 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir and 2019 “Flying By the Seat of Our Pants” Rosé of Grenache. These new wines, crafted under the direction of consulting winemaker Cary Gott and assistant winemaker Tom Pierson, mark the third vintages of rosé from the boutique, family-run winery.
“Both of these vintages are products of our estate vineyard’s remarkable 2019 growing season,” said CEO and founder Mark Hanson. “We’re proud and excited to share these beautiful wines with friends and family who want to take a piece of our estate home with them or enjoy them right here in one of the estate’s many picturesque locations.”
Sourced from 100 percent Russian River Valley Appellation Pinot Noir estate-grown grapes, the 2019 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir (12.6 percent ABV) is a lovely peach hue and evokes the style of classic California rosés. The wine has a supple texture and crisp minerality, with hints of raspberry, orange zest and white orchid flower. The 2019 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir is now available for purchase at bricoleurvineyards.com/wines with an SRP of $32/bottle.
Sourced from 100 percent Fountaingrove District Appellation Grenache from Kick Ranch Vineyards, the 2019 “Flying By the Seat of Our Pants” Rosé of Grenache (12.7 percent ABV) is light and elegant and based on the rosés of Provence. The wine is a beautiful rose petal color and the aromas carry subtle hints of peach, citrus fruits and watermelon Jolly Rancher. On the palate, the rosé is crisp and light with an addictive tartness that begs for another sip. The 2019 “Flying By the Seat of Our Pants” Rosé of Grenache is now available for purchase at bricoleurvineyards.com/wines with an SRP of $27/bottle.
