Winemaker's Notes

We celebrate the fact that we make wine in a region where vintage variations play an important role. Atypical growing seasons are a nightmare for commercial wineries interested in making consistent but boring wines. For us however, it defines our interest in wine. We look forward to seeing what Mother Nature gives us to work with each year. It is the effects of each vintage on the finished wine that urges us to start verticals of our favorite wines and then follow their evolution and discuss their merits at tastings with friends.

LaStellina, made by the "bleeding" method, is a Rosato with personality and elegance. It is very slightly off-dry and intensely aromatic. This style of Rosato will complement any hot summer day on the patio. The Cabernet Franc adds some beautiful spice and herbal notes, Sangiovese brings with it those classic bing cherry notes while the Merlot provides a melange of red and dark fruit notes.

Food Pairing

The off-dry and highly aromatic qualities of this wine complement dishes that have an element of spice or piquant flavours - Thai and Indian dishes would be a great choice! This wine will also work beautifully with strong cheeses - be sure to search out some local favorites. 


"Produced in the saignée method which "bleeds" juice from newly crushed red grapes imparting a pale strawberry colour and just a touch of tannin texture, the LaStellina is a blend of 62.6% Cabernet Franc, 29.9% Merlot and 7.6% Sangiovese with a fruity, joyful flavour profile of strawberry, rhubarb, cherry and mouth-watering tropical fruit. The balance between the sweet fruit and the acidic elements leans towards off-dry, but not fully. Drink now." Liam Carrier | IconWines.ca

"This rosé is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese.  The hue is a vibrant pink. The wine begins with aromas of cherry and plum, leading to refreshing sour cherry flavours balanced with a touch of residual sugar that gives the wine a juicy texture." 90 Points - John Schreiner
