Weinreich | Rosé
Summer in a bottle
This rosé is pure summer. Like freshly picked strawberries, salty grapefruit, and a pink lemonade finish. This wine comes from a tiny town and special viticultural area known as Bechtheim, Germany. The vineyards are situated on the center slopes of a horseshoe-shaped hillside that protects the vines in a pocket of mild weather. The winery is run by the two Weinreich brothers who farm organically and both a reverence for the traditional grape varieties of the region, as well as a thirst for carefully crafting modern, tasty wines – and we’re here for it!
Pinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser, Pinot Meunier
Great with summer food with a flair – salmon burgers, chicken kabobs, watermelon and feta salad. Combine any lighter meat or meatier seafood. Serve well chilled and prepare to smile.
The two Weinreich brothers took over the family winery in 2009 when their father suddenly passed away. Still in enology school, the boys took over and immediately converted to organic farming and native yeast fermentation in their tiny town and special viticultural area known as Bechtheim, Germany. While their father focused on red wines, they believe this region makes great whites and this beautiful rosé from native red varietals. The older, more traditional generation of German winemakers used the red grapes of the region to make traditionally dry red wines. Today, with the effects of climate change and a willingness to embrace the grape’s natural expression and thwart traditional styles, winemakers like the Weinreich brothers are making tasty wines we all want to drink.
