Food & Wine: Best Winter Rosés

Tom and Steve Beck­men, the own­er and winemaker/​general man­ag­er, both say Rosé is their favorite wine and the wine they grav­i­tate towards no mat­ter the set­ting. Gen­er­al­ly speak­ing, how­ev­er, more Rosé is con­sumed dur­ing warmer months than dur­ing the win­ter, which was why we were so pleas­ant­ly sur­prised for our 2018 PMV Grenache Rosé to be includ­ed in Ray Isle’s lat­est arti­cle in Food & Wine mag­a­zine, 10 Pink Wines That Are Per­fect for Win­ter Nights.

Robb Report: 20 Stellar Wines Under $100 — and 5 Secrets for How to Find Them

At the the end of 2019 and begin­ning of 2020, Amer­i­can wine buy­ers were seri­ous­ly con­cerned that a 100% tar­iff on wines from the Euro­pean Union would cre­ate a major shift in the US wine indus­try. Winophiles knew this would affect their abil­i­ty to pur­chase and enjoy Euro­pean wines on a day to day basis. So, Sara Schnei­der, writer for the Robb Report, put togeth­er a list of incred­i­ble Amer­i­can wines that can hold their weight against clas­sic Euro­pean wines. We were so incred­i­bly hap­py to find our 2017 PMV Block Six Syrah includ­ed in this list!
