    Winemaker Notes

    This is a beautiful French style Rose with a beautiful blush color. Fresh strawberries, lime and other citrus fruits on the nose. High yet balanced acidity provides a clean palate of limes, grapefruit, raspberries and strawberries.

    Pair this wine with curries, paella, seafood stew and sheep's cheeses.Blend: 100% Grenache

    Clos LaChance, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    Clos LaChance is a small, family-owned winery, located in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. We produce limited quantities of hand-made wines from local vineyards and other premium appellations throughout Northern California. The name Clos LaChance is derived from the French word "clos" for the fenced area around a vineyard (in this case the owners' home vineyard), and from co-owner Brenda Murphy's maiden name, LaChance.

    The Clos LaChance trademark - a hummingbird among the grapevines - is the primary feature on our label. The hummingbird was chosen not only for its grace and style, but also for its strength. The hummingbird is a welcome addition into vineyards for its "energetic" efforts in keeping other birds away.

    Central Coast

    View all wine

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
