With National Rosé Day marking the unofficial start to summer, wine lovers across the world will be planning seasonal getaways, backyard barbecues, bonfires on the beach and plenty of poolside/patio parties. Whether on the go or at home, Ah-So Rosé makes the perfect pairing.
As Spain’s first estate grown, organic canned rosé, Ah-So comes from the celebrated Lopez de LaCalle Artazu property. Located in the small town of Artazu, this property is situated in the northernmost part of Navarra at the base of the Pyrenees mountains. The wine is sourced from local clones – 100% Garnacha – in a rosé-specific, high-altitude vineyard (400-500 meters), which features clay and limestone soils, that the family has been farming since 1996.
Utilizing organic viticulture, the vineyards are farmed with the utmost respect for the environment with no use of herbicides and pesticides. Grapes are handpicked and sorted from 15- to 45-year-old vines. The gentle press of gravity to extract the juice, combined with the natural transformation of native yeast, results in a crisp, flavorful and delectable rosé. To further ensure quality, the Lopez de LaCalle family purchased a canning line to package Ah-So onsite and ensure ongoing freshness from vine to can.
Ah-So Rosé is founded by Carlos Lopez de Localle, a third-generation vintner from Spain, and Dustin Chiappetta, a veteran of the wine and hospitality industry. It comes packaged in four vibrantly-designed, 8.2-oz. cans with a suggested retail price of $18.99.
