If you immediately think of Rosé when you think of summer, then you'll want to try our 2021 Roaming Dog Rosé. Crisp and light, with the fresh scent of strawberry, this award winning wine is sunshine in a glass. It's bound to brighten your day or evening, any time of year.
As best friends go, a good dog is tough to beat — like Blue, mascot of Roaming Dog Wines and official squirrel chaser of our vineyard. Seems like just the other day that a couple of our field hands spied this scruffy old hound traipsing among the vines, with his tail on high-wag and an expression that said, “I’m home.”
So, when we needed a name for our wine, Roaming Dog just seemed to fit. Crafted exclusively with grapes from Washington's panoramic Columbia Valley AVA, they’re easy going with just the right notes of fruit and oak and of course, as good of a companion as Blue.
Grapes were delicatley hand picked and pressed using a gentle, champagne style pressing cycle to minimize color and tannin extraction. They are then cold settled, racked, and fermented with a variety of yeast strains to dryness before being aged for four months in stainless steel.
Pomegranate, citrus and hints of fresh herb on the nose. Round and inviting on the palate, with hints of bright red fruit, finishing clean with vibrant acidity.
Perfectly paired alongside an arugula salad, vegetable pizza, or
soft cheeses like brie and goat cheese.
