Summertime Whites, Rosés and Chillable Reds
With Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault berries perfectly ripe and full of varietal flavours, the fruit quality was no less than superb. To capture these delicate aromas, flavours and freshness, the berries are picked as early as 4AM and fermentation takes place at low temperatures. This is part of a state of the art production process to minimize the influence of oxygen, an innovative technique stemming from traditional methods in which AIX Rosé heavily invests to create the best possible rosé in the world.
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir Secret de Famille ("Family Secret") is crafted from a carefully sourced blend of grapes from prestigious terroirs of the Côte d'Or region only (around Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin, Marsannay…). We treat these wines as “villages” wines, where yields are restricted and ageing is adapted for each wine.
This charming wine features predominant fruity aromas of blackcurrant and wild red berries. Velvety and silky, this wine boasts soft, balanced structure on the palate, which ends with a delicate finish reminiscent of red fruit.
Beautiful salmon pink color thanks to a short maceration on the press. Fermented in natural yeasts, without malolactic fermentation. Aged from 12 to 18 months on the lees to reveal optimally the notes of fresh red fruits.
"Based on Pinot Noir the NV Crémant d'Alsace Rosé Brut has a very pale color. Very delicate fruit aroma with hints of red berries and flowers on the very subtle, fresh and elegant nose lead to a full-flavored and quite expressive palate. The wine is quite powerful and fruit intense but in a discreet and elegant way. Firmly structured but provided with fine bubbles and an aromatic aftertaste there is really finesse in this very well-made and distinctive sparkling wine." -Robert Parker
As assembly of each of the blocks and clones from their estate holdings within the Sta. Rita Hills and predominantly fermented as whole clusters. We have always viewed the stem as an inherent part of the cluster, much like a skeleton within a body. The approach is akin to cooking meat on the bone such chicken breast on the ribs. The outcome is that the stem’s participation acts like a corset to render the wine more stern and to lift up the fruit aromatic by fermenting largely as whole berries. The tannin architecture in the wine is also largely a stem derivative which substantiates the back of the palate and is more savory in nature much like tea or soy, but has aromas of pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry. Flavors of dried fig, white truffle and ripe cherry.
This is Greg Brewer's appellation blend rather than his single-vineyard expressions, but it's still incredibly dynamic and delicious. A fresh and fruity strawberry-slushie aroma is met with notes of crushed slate and star anise-spiced cookies on the nose. The palate is bright in flavors of slightly tart cherries and ripe cranberries, but then come juniper and pine needle on the midpalate. Acidity pumps into the pomegranate and menthol finish.
VARIETAL: 100% Chenin Blanc
VINEYARD: Shell Creek Vineyard
LOCATION: Paso Robles (East Side)
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 800 cases
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: We use the Petillant Natural method for making our Love Sparkling. For 2020, we left the juice on the skins overnight and pressed into stainless steel tank. We fermented the wine until it reached 15 grams of sugar, then chilled the wine down to stop fermentation and bottled the juice. As it warmed up, fermentation occurred again in bottle. Wine spent 7 months in bottle and was disgorged by hand with no dosage. This is our first year bottling Love Sparkling Chenin Blanc. We wanted to have a sparkling join the Love label. This wine is made to be enjoyed until the last drop. Have fun and drink up.
VITICULTURAL AREA: Shell Creek Vineyard has sandy top soil and calcareous fossilized sea shells underneath. It was planted in 1972, and owned by the same family (Sinton Family), since the late 1800’s. The vineyard is SIP certified – it is sustainably farmed with no spraying of round-up.
At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The Love Red grapes were harvested in the second week of September to preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The Carignan and Syrah were both whole cluster fermented and destemmed in concrete and stainless tanks. The Valdiguié went under carbonic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 8 months in concrete and neutral French oak barrels.
VITICULTURAL AREA: The grapes come from 70 year old vines in Solano County’s Green Valley. This area is tucked between Napa and Suisun Valley. Parenti and Wirth Ranch each provide Syrah and Valdiguié for this blend. The Carignan comes solely from Parenti Vineyard. The grapes of each vineyard grow in clay loam soils and come from mostly dry-farmed and head-pruned vines.
BLEND: 77% Carignan, 15% Valdiguié, 8% Syrah,
ALC: 12.5% alcohol
The grapes were harvested in August and early September to help preserve their natural acidity. All varieties were fermented separately, then aged in neutral French oak barrels with no S02. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to happen naturally. All varieties in this blend play a key role to delivering its unique balance. Picpoul grapes are from cuttings from Rorick Vineyard vines that we grafted onto Marsanne vines at Love Ranch a few years ago. The Picpoul adds brightness to the wine, while Albariño (new for us this release) comes from North Canyon Vineyard and adds beautiful aromatics. Marsanne and Roussanne add lovely texture, while Grenache Blanc provides the balance. Love White is meant to be a fresher style of a Rhône-inspired white that is structured, delicious and infinitely drinkable.
Sourcing Sauvignon Blanc fruit from all over Napa Valley gives the wine great complexity in aroma and flavor. The nose is fresh, with aromas of guava, green apple, lemon, lime, white peach, lemon grass, green melon, and orange blossom. The palate is soft and juicy with flavors of banana, Meyer lemon, pineapple, mango, lemon meringue, cantaloupe, and grapefruit. The wine finishes with a bright acidity, a touch of minerality, and a nice creamy mid palate texture.
Danielle ferments our Sauvignon Blanc with 10 different strains of yeast in new and used French oak, concrete egg, stainless steel tanks and drums. Fermenting the juice in stainless steel preserves the wonderful, varied fruits of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The portion of juice that is fermented in oak barrels and concrete gives the wine a texture and creaminess, balancing the natural bright acidity of the grape.
An elegant, original and inimitable personality. Rich in red fruit mixed with notes of licorice typical of the variety. Great harmony with anything from traditional pesto to charcuterie to cherry pie.
"Bright medium red. Pungently perfumed nose offers violet, lavender, Szechuan pepper, lemongrass, blood orange and small red berries. Then juicy and very fresh flavors similar to the aromas, plus a building licorice nose, linger impressively on the medium-bodied mouthfeel. Closes with magical, persistent inner-mouth perfume and truly exceptional clarity and cut. This sees no oak whatsoever and therefore the wine's magical perfume is really allowed to shine through. A real knockout of a wine and easily one of the two or three best Perricones I have ever tried." 95 Points Vinous
Elegant pale-pink color, evoking a rose petal. On the nose, Miraval Rosé shows all its elegance: beautifully fresh, it exudes aromas of fresh fruit, currants and fresh rose with a zest of lemon. The refinement continues in the mouth with beautiful liveliness and gourmet notes that subtly balance the mineral and saline notes. An irresistible wine that ends with a long finish with lemony notes.
"There is an attractive richness to this wine produced by the Perrin family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is full of ripe red berries mingling with spice and citrus. With a fresh, crisp and textured aftertaste, it is ready to drink." 91 Points

In 2016 Cleto Chiarli started a collaboration with local farmers in the Castelvetro area that have long embraced organic viticulture practices. These individuals are members of the Cantina Sociale di Settecani, with whom Chiarli has been partners with for many years prior to this project. Chiarli supervises and controls the quality of the farming and viticultural practices of the vineyards. The grapes are brought to Cleto Chiarli at the time of harvest and the Chiarli winemaking team proceeds with vinification.
Aromas of white flowers and a strawberry nose lead to a fruit forward yet balanced entry and mouthfeel. The round and juicy palate is supported by structured acidity and a lingering texture that leaves your mouth watering for the next sip.
Grenache, Syrah and Grenache Blanc
Offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate.
A Rosé of reference, to be enjoyed year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine.
"Vivid orange-pink. Strawberry, orange zest and pungent flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy red berry, citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors show good depth and a bracing undercurrent of juicy acidity. Opens up slowly on the back half and finishes long and silky, with repeating florality and a refreshingly bitter touch of orange zest. Drinking window: 2021 - 2023"- 90 Vinous
This domaine is one of the estates owned and run by the three, hardworking Aubert Brothers, which they inherited from their father and named after him. They make very good Cotes de Rhone using a Grenache and Syrah blend. It is perfectly weighted, with ripe dark fruit and peppery spice.
