Rosé Weekend is Here. Think and Drink Pink.

Rosé wines are perfect for Summer sipping. Heck they are event great all year long with lamb, turkey, pork, burgers, and more! The 70’s and 80’s made us afraid of sweet pink blush. These wines barely passed for wine and were sugary headache causing drinks. As Rosé has evolved it has gone back to the traditions of Provence France and become a delightful dry drink for daily drinking.

Our 5th Annual Rosé day tasting has evolved to a two day event with 160 reservation spots available. Join us June 13-14, 2020! Due to popularity and to maintain social distancing restrictions we have put our reservation system online in our store for you to buy tickets. Club members use the code NECTARVIP to save $5 on your order.

Rosé is traditionally made in one of three different ways.

  1. INTENTIONAL HARVEST – Grapes are grown and harvested with the intent to make Rosé. After harvest the juice has minimal contact with the wine skins, 12-48 hours. This typically means earlier harvesting to keep sugar levels lower and acid levels higher. These Rosés are treated with great care and intention and are usually a love of the wine maker. They are typically lighter in color and very dry (low to no sugar).
  2. SAIGNEE METHOD – Saignée (“sohn-yay”) means “to bleed,” and it also describes a method of rosé winemaking that involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds. Saignée is considered a byproduct of red winemaking because its primary function is to increase the concentration of red wines. Still, Saignée is a unique style of rosé wine because it is so often bolder and darker in color than any other rosé wine. So, if you’re not a fan of traditional rosé, you might like Saignée because: It’s bigger, darker, and stronger than other pink wines. (source Wine Folly)
  3. BLUSH METHOD – These rosé wines are often of the sweeter variety. A still white wine is made and then sugar and a small amount of red wine is added to give the wine its pink color.

Eager and Ready to ‘SAFELY’ Serve You

UPDATE: We are now open at 50% in store and patio seating capacity.

We have missed you! As the quarantine eases and businesses like ours are allowed to resume service to customers we want to assure you that we are ready to serve you safely. In phase two we have to limit our seating capacity to 50% while also maintaining a safe distance between existing tables. It is also important to proceed through these times with both our guests AND our staff safety as a priority. While things may look differently and we may not be able to serve as many of you, we promise to deliver the best craft wine and beer experience in town.

What will you notice? Aside from the obvious physical changes of less available seating we have installed Plexiglass barriers at the front cash register and at the bar. The bar barriers allow us to seat six more people than we would have otherwise. Servers will be wearing masks (for their safety and yours) and a sanitation schedule is being implemented to regularly clean surfaces every two hours as well as routinely during the shift.

To manage the flow of seating a host will be in charge of welcoming you and seating you to a freshly sanitized table inside or on the patio. Our seating chart must remain fixed. If you need to adjust any seating arrangements please ask a server if that is possible. The changes we are implementing are not there to inconvenience you. They are there to ensure that we comply with state mandates so we can continue to serve you. We know you will be respectful of our team and their efforts. When enjoying our establishment please practice social distancing, utilize our sanitizer provided at every table, wash your hands and keep all seating arrangements to no more than five guests.
