Sourced from the marl and clay rich soils of the Vogrsko and Brajda vineyards, this Rosé was gently crushed and left to spontaneously ferment in stainless steel. Geared toward freshness, expect a slight effervescence of fine bubbles.

New vintage! We don’t often dabble in international varietals but we have been enjoying the Bordeaux based wines from Gere for some time now and jumped at the opportunity to import them. The wine is absolutely classic with typical aromas of cassis, currant and espresso, but what makes it exciting is the “other” - that elusive gamey, almost musky quality that holds your attention. Having tasted Gere cabernets dating back decades, this will undoubtedly age well. Shop ➞
