The rosé wine is not a combination of red wine and white wine. Except for Champagne rosé, this combination is forbidden by legislation.
Rosé wines are made from red grapes with a few coloured juice. We produce two types of wine making:

  • It can be produced as a by-product of red wine fermentation using a technique known as “Saignée”, or bleeding the vats. Some of the pink juice can be removed from the must at an early stage. The pink juice that is removed can be fermented separately to produce what we call the “Gris” wines.
  • Red-skinned grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice for a short period. The grapes are then pressed, and the skins are discarded rather than left in contact throughout fermentation (as with red wine making). The juice is then fermented to produce our Rosé wines.
