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.
We have been making a Grenache Rosé since our inaugural 1995 vintage. The Beckmen family fell in love with Tavel Rosé while travelling through Provence, France, and always knew they would create a similar wine in their portfolio. What makes our Rosé unique is how we craft it: our Rosé is made from grapes which are grown and harvested specifically for the Rosé wine, it is not a made from juice bled off our red fermenters. There is a big difference in this method because instead of manipulating the bleed off juice into Rosé wine we can harvest grapes with the proper flavor profile, acidity and potential alcohol for Rosé wine.
