This fact creates a special microclimate that protects the vineyards from the stifling summer heat and brings the wine a distinctive, fresh personality.

Sick and tired of the ever-more-pale-Provence-style-snobbish-would-be-French rosés. This is what I was looking for!!
This rosé is very versatile. You can drink it without food or pair it with Indian food and pasta. This product is excellent, and I think that the winery should be better known.
