Road to Rosé: Vineyard Tour and Tasting
June 24, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Rosé – however you wish to pronounce it Ro-Say or Ro-Zay – has gone, in the past few years, from being little regarded to the fastest growing segment of the global wine trade. We offer some opinions on this phenomenon, and comment on various styles. We discuss the various grapes we use in Muse rosés as we walk through our vineyards.
We will visit the winery for a discussion of how rosé is made and the choices available to the small production winemakers who craft the finest rosés. (French Bandols made from the Mourvedre grape, exemplify such wines). We describe the various methods we employ in crafting our rosés. Among those methods are vin gris, saignée and other traditional rosé fermentation techniques. Throughout, our goal is a handcrafted, non-industrial product that begins in the vineyard and ends in your glass.
At the end of our presentation we will return to the tasting room to taste the following Muse Rosés: Nebbiolo, Urania (our Aglianico and Sangiovese blend), Cabernet Franc, and a Vin Gris made from Gamay. Accompanying these wines will be small plate creations from our chef.
