About This Wine:
Our Rosé is vinified from grapes grown along the benchlands of the Niagara Escarpment. Before pressing, the partially crushed berries are left on their skins just long enough to produce a rosé-tinged must. Fermented dry, this wine offers refreshing berry fruit and lively acidity, making it ideal for casual fare any time of the year.
