Oregon Rosé of Pinot Noir
This Stoneridge Vineyard estate grown wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grape varietals and represents an Oregon style with Alsatian influences. In order to capture the rose (or rosé in French) color, the grapes are whole cluster pressed and remain on their skins for a short period of time before the wine is left to ferment on its own in stainless steel. Pairs well with seafood like crab and grilled fish tacos, light pasta, and salads, but we also enjoy it on its own with charcuterie.
Our Stoneridge Vineyard grapes are LIVE certified and Salmon Safe. We are proud to be one of only 321 vineyards to receive one of the highest certifications in the world for viticulture under the LIVE certification. Using the latest in internationally accredited and evolving standards, LIVE ensures that certified wineries and vineyards are "minimizing environmental impacts, preserving agricultural fertility, and sustaining economic viability for generations to come." As one of 350 Salmon Safe vineyards, we focus on reducing runoff and enhancing native biodiversity on our property, which means we make a conscious decision to avoid pesticides that would be harmful downstream.
