Why We Love It...

I’ve been a longtime fan of Lorenza’s still rosé – consistently among my favorite QPR rosés in California for over a decade. While Lorenza has now expanded their brand to include reds, whites, and bubbly – rosé has always been this mother-daughter duo’s focus, sourcing some fantastic old-vine material from across California’s top vineyard sites. Under $20 for a dry, crisp, and eminently drinkable Cali-sparkling rosé is rare – and this is one of the very best! 

Michèle Ouellet grew up in Napa Valley, the daughter of a couple of long-time wine and restaurant industry parents, so food and wine were always just a way of life. She snagged an international modeling contract when she was just fifteen, and grew up fast – traveling the globe and tasting the world’s cuisines and wines from an early age. After a summer spent modeling in Paris at sixteen, she returned home and shared with her mom, Melinda Kearney, that she particularly enjoyed Provencal rosé. Melinda responded, “Let’s make rosé together when you’re of age!” and a few years later, Lorenza was born.

Since 2008, the production has focused almost solely on still rosé – picking up some rather famous fans along the way…from grabbing a spot on Oprah’s “O List”, to being named Wall Street Journal’s #1 “Optimally Priced Rosé”, to articles in Wine Enthusiast, Forbes, and beyond – Lorenza has arrived on the catwalk of California wine. This bubbly is now the next great venture in their portfolio… and you’re gonna love it!

Mostly carignan, then some grenache, all picked early specifically for this rosé sparkling. The vines are up to 50 years old, from prime plots in Lodi – where Rhone varietals thrive in the warm days and cool nights atop sandy alluvial soils. The grapes are co-fermented in stainless steel, and bottled to finish fermentation in glass – conveniently topped with a soda-pop crown cap for easy enjoyment. 

And what a treat! Aromatics of cherries and strawberries, a kiss of raspberry, and orange cream soda get things rolling. In the mouth, this salmon-hued wine bubbles away soft and minerally – with accents of iron ore, and a salty sea spray character. The fruits are tart and citrusy – from pink grapefruit to lime, to pomelo, with additional notes of cranberry, and cherry. An intriguing finish pulls out this juicy watermelon character – all in all fun stuff that is a perfect sipper and cellar defender for a spectacular price! We bought the rest of what the winery had…but there is never enough when it comes to deals like this – grab a case and thank me when spring rolls along!
