Wölffer Estate Vineyard, a sustainable vineyard in the heart of the Hamptons, announces the release of Summer in a Bottle, the newest addition to the vineyard’s portfolio of rosé wines, inspired by the epic 2013 vintage.
Summer in a Bottle joins the iconic gold-label Wölffer Rosé and thewhite-horse-label Grandioso Rosé, becoming Wölffer’s third still dry rosé.
What distinguishes Summer in a Bottle is its fruit character. An homage to the glorious summer of 2013, Summer in a Bottle is a literal taste of the Hamptons high season. “We waited as long as possible to harvest the fruit for Summer in a Bottle. Choosing the perfect moment to pick was crucial to make this highly anticipated wine, bursting with the aromas and flavors of the seasonal fruits that reach their peak ripeness at the height of summer,” said Wölffer Winemaker/ Partner Roman Roth.Learn More
Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The chateau’s cellar structure or foundation (known today as the oldest in the region) housed an original Chateau that was given by the Comte de Provence to Gérard De Villeneuve, in 1201. The current chateau, inspired by Tuscan Villa design, was built during the mid 19th century. Château d’Esclans lies in the center of the Department of the Var, where the majority of Provence AOC rosé is produced. The land was occupied as long as 2500 years ago when it was probably used as a lookout point for intruders sailing into the Gulf of Frejus. The original château—of which now only the cellar remains—dates back to before the 12th century. Tasting notes Delicate and breezy… With flavors of dried cherry, licorice, cream and spice. Finishes with notes of dried mango and hints of sage honey. Learn More
