Welcome to this wild side, West Coast style, red punch, yet structured Rosé – it’s a Cali vibe and oh he does it so well. Pink and hazy like a crunchy summer watermelon with a tinge of earthy freshly-picked tomato leaf to keep this grounded. Winemaker and owner Evan Lewandowski makes this almost entirely with traditional Portuguese grapes grown in Mendocino, California, with all the aroma, flavor and textural signatures of these deeper red varieties. Then he peppered in a tiny bit of Sauvignon Blanc like last year since it was so good. It’s unique and delicious – not your ordinary Rosé, and exactly what you want to drink.

So who’s Ruth? Read the full story here.

Delicious With

Ground turkey tacos, fish and chips, pizza night, and red sauce on anything. It’s great from salads to burgers to grilled fish.

Their Cred

Winemaker and owner Evan Lewandowski initially made his way to Salt Lake City to attend the University of Utah — or really, to ski. Sticking around after graduation, Evan began working at the wine bar The Spotted Frog (since closed), where he met then owner, and now national wine importer, Zev Rovine. It was here that Evan began developing a passion for natural wine and a dream of becoming a winemaker himself. Itching to learn more, Evan eventually left his gig in Salt Lake City to work at wineries around the world. While in Washington, he earned a degree at The Walla Walla Institute for Viticulture and Enology. After working at Binner’s in Alsace for several years, Evan moved back to his adopted state of Utah in 2012 to start his own small project. He began purchasing organic, dry-farmed grapes from Mendocino County (Fox Hill Vineyard & Testa Vineyard). Using his refrigerated U-Haul, he trekked these somewhat more obscure grape varieties back to his home in Salt Lake City to complete fermentation, aging and bottling.

Evan moved his operations entirely to California in April 2018. His winemaking is rooted in his hands-off philosophy, crafting heartfelt, honest wines made to showcase the true expression of the Mendocino terroir. No additives are used: no acid, no sugar, no water, no tannin, no filtration, and no cultured yeast. Low or no sulfur is used according to the blend.
