Merlot and Sangiovese from Pestoni’s vineyard between their winery and Highway 29 is the source for this dry, spicy Rosé wine. All saignée, which is surprising based on the peach skin color. Lite spice, fresh strawberries, blood orange, peppercorns, etc. You know, all the good Rosé smells and flavors. Very dry and nicely fruity too. This is sold exclusively at the winery from the tasting room and to Pestoni Family wine club members, so buy online or visit Pestoni Family’s winery & tasting room in Rutherford to get this.

Andy Pestoni returned to the family business, Pestoni Estate (previously called Rutherford Ranch) as winemaker in 2017. Most of the wine on the market now, made by Andy’s predecessor, are good. As more of the wines made by Andy Pestoni come onto the market, you’ll hear more about Pestoni Family.
