The best California Rosé I've ever had
Let me start by saying, I hate rose. I really do. I’ve tried many different types over the past 3 years. None ever stood out until now. Below is a list of 3 Rose’s you need to be drinking this summer!
OAK FARM GRENACHE ROSE
This Rose is so refreshing. It’s crisp but not dry, which I really like. It has just enough fruit, but not overly jammy. The fruit that really pops is the melon and grapefruit. This rose is so refreshing that you really can drink it with brunch or lunch. After many years of hating rose, this was the one that really made me a believer. This rose is not sold in stores, but it’s 10000% worth calling and asking for a bottle to be drop shipped. This is definitely a place you want to stop on your next trip to Lodi.

2. Retzlaff Merlot Rose
The color of this rose will blow you away. It literally looks like koolaid.. or strawberry Snapple. But OMG, the taste is out of this world. We stumbled across the super cute vineyard of Retzlaff one day while visiting Livermore. Not only was their property super charming, but the owner was the most hospitable & passionate winemaker you would ever meet! This wine is not sold in stores, but can be ordered from their site!

3. Acquiesce Grenache Rose
Another beautiful & elegant rose to add to your collection. This one was full of strawberry and cherry, but not heavy. I imagine this being perfect for a bridal shower. The bottle alone makes it a gorgeous gift for any girlfriend that loves rose. All the wine from this winery is made by a female winemaker - her technique is so timeless, and her tasting room which is a barn (over 100 years old) offers the BEST pairings to make her wine come alive. This is a must stop next time you are in Lodi.
