About This Wine:
Vaison la Romaine is a village in the Northern Vaucluse, and is home to a world-famous weekly market for foods and dry goods. If you’ve read any of Patricia Wells’s Provençal cookbooks, you’ve seen pictures of Vaison with its Roman ruins, ancient (and still used) Roman bridge, and breathtaking stone houses hanging on a cliff by the river. Vaison la Romaine’s cooperative winery produces Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Ventoux wines – the latter named for nearby Mont Ventoux (famous in the U.S. for the Tour de France). While similar in composition to Côtes du Rhônes, Ventoux wines are a bit lighter and brighter tasting. The rosé is a perfect accompaniment to shellfish – it particularly brings out their sweetness – and also your holiday turkey. It is nearly like a white wine, except that it has a bit of tannins at the end that help it cut through heavier foods. Word is out that 2011 is a great vintage for rosé, so try it while you can!

The 2017 vintage is a little different from other years -- you'll notice it looks more like a white wine.  The winemaker decided to give the juice minimal skin contact, so it only looks pale, but tastes like a rosé.  It may fool the eyes, but not the taste buds!
