ABOUT DES AMIS

 

"Friends don't let friends drink bad wine." 

 

We chose this name because friends are at the core of our philosophy. Our friendship is the reason we wanted to make a wine together, and we’ve relied on friends to make this wine a reality.

Our first vintage was 44 cases of whole cluster Pinot Noir rosé made using gifted grapes, illegally under the cover of night over one large pizza (half Meat Lover’s, half Hawaiian) and a few bottles of really good wine. Now into our 6th vintage, Des Amis has become an exciting project for us and the friends that help make this rosé brand a reality.

 

DES AMIS - CA ROSÉ 

Tasting Notes

2018 Blend:
This bone dry Rosé is summertime in a bottle, enjoyable year round. Playful notes of strawberry and blood orange open, followed by bright tropical fruit flavors of kiwi and watermelon. Like a California sunset, this beautiful wine finishes long and slow, with fragrant floral notes and a wonderful, light minerality. Grab a picnic blanket, a date, and say, “Yes way,” to  Des Amis Rosé!

After trouble with fires in 2017, the 2018 growing season was ideal from start to finish. Consistent warm days followed by cool evenings developed a bright, natural acidity into the grapes.
