France: Château des Annibals Coteaux Varois en Provence Rosé Suivez-moi-jeune-homme
Crafted from an entirely solar-powered, certified organic winery, this classic Provence rosé is aged 5 months in stainless steel tanks on its lees, giving it some complexity.

Austria: Schloss Gobelsburg Rosé Cistercien
Produced from one of the oldest wineries in the Austrian Danube area with history dating back to 1171, the Rosé Cistercien represents ancient Austrian winemaking. This rose is a blend of Zweigelt, St. Laurent, and Pinot Noir grapes grown on the cooler side of the Danube river. This rose carries the weight of white wine and the subtle taste of fresh fruit. Just an interesting side note, Schloss Gobelsburg had ecological winemaking in mind before the majority of the industry. In 1995, the monks of the Zwettl Monastery managed the winery and used organic fertilizer, abstained from employing herbicides, and aimed to reduce the use of plant protectants.
Spain: Bodegas Latúe Rosado
In 1954, 131 winemakers formed Bodegas Latúe with quality wines in mind. Over time, Bodegas Latúe has grown to an international platform without compromising it’s efforts to create environmentally sound and certified organic wines. Today, we get to enjoy this delicious rosé. Hints of strawberry, peach, tart cherry and hibiscus show through this rosé with the weight and concentration of red wine. This 100% tempranillo blend is equally as refreshing as it is exciting.
Corsica: Terra Santa Ile De Beaute 2020
This 100% Sciaccarellu rose hailing from the gorgeous island of Corsica is refreshing and direct in taste. The Terra Santa vineyards lay between the Miocene sea and the coastal mountain located on the East coast of Corsica. The Terra Santa vineyard, meaning “Land blessed by the gods” pays tribute to the Mediterranean lifestyle and Corsica landscape with its grape varieties. The grapes are picked at night in low temperatures to preserve their aromas and avoid oxidation resulting in a crisp rosé with peach and watermelon notes.
