We know how much you enjoyed that Private Property Chardonnay (there’s like 3 cases left after our restock!), so today, on this vibrant, sun-filled Friday, we’re bringing you their summer-loving, absolutely delicious Rosé of Pinot Noir for just $14, a smooth 30% off retail. Oh yeah. We got those TGIF/long weekend vibes in full force.

Underrated and an amazing source for high quality fruit without the high price tag, Santa Lucia Highlands is certainly cementing itself as a wine region to watch. Producers like Kosta Browne, WALT, Siduri and Twomey source from the foothills and benchlands of this rugged range, having realized the uniquely pleasing profile the wines produce. 

This Rosé is sourced exclusively from Pinot Noir vineyards in the sun and wind-swept hills of those highlands. Most of the blend is direct to press, though there’s a touch of saignée juice added to give the wine a bit more texture and zip. The result is a bright, acid-tingling, soft, fruit forward wine that saddles up nicely to outdoor activities and copious amounts of cheese. Lovely notes of strawberries, pink grapefruit, watermelon and orange zest with hints of wet stones, pomegranate and the slightest touch of lemongrass.

We’re taking our bottle to the backyard to join us in some garden puttering and important work on that suntan. Can you garden and suntan without a glass of Rosé in hand? Sure. But it certainly wouldn’t be as fun.

Get your summer sipper! And remember, shipping included on 6+ bottles ($84 a 6-pack). Happy weekend, friends!
