Bonterra 2016 Rosé: Celebrating 30 years of organic farming and a new rosé!

Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is Bonterra 2016 Rosé. I recently had the pleasure of joining winemaker Sebastian Donoso and other wine personalities on Wine Studio (aka #winestudio), your source for grassroots brand marketing and beverage education, for a virtual Twitter chat. Just last year, Bonterra was named ‘American Winery of the Year’ by Wine Enthusiast magazine. This year, Bonterra – a forerunner of the green movement – celebrates 30 years of organic farming in northern California’s Mendocino County. In total, Bonterra farms 950 acres of CCOF-certified vineyards throughout the area. Their belief: “Organic grapes lead to flavorful, balanced wines perfectly in tune with nature.” Over the years, I have found Bonterra to be a very reliable producer. Their wines represent good value for the money across the spectrum. This is Bonterra’s inaugural vintage of rosé. It is made from organically grown grapes intended solely for the purpose of making rosé. For further information on this…
