2023 Rosé  -  Paoloni

The Paoloni Estate 

- Paoloni is a family owned boutique production winery that sits on some of the best land on the northern side of the valley.

- Paolo lives at his vineyard site where he takes great pride in farming close to the earth, organic is just a starting point.

- All wines are made from his estate vineyards, which were planted in succession by Paolo Paoloni himself beginning in 1998. His vineyard sites are more sloped and rolling than most, as well as at a higher elevation than the majority of the valley. His higher elevation sites contain more granite in the soil which results in a higher minerality and less of the saline presence that some of the lower elevation vineyard sites in Valle de Guadalupe occasionally contain.

- Paolo's technique mirrors an old school Italian approach to wine making, which results in a wine with fresh minerality and complex wonderfully nuanced floral aromas.


Total production: 9 wines, 10,000 cases

2023 Rosé - Paoloni

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    A Provençal rosé that is as fresh as a summer day is long, this wine drinks like a sunset along the coast of Big Sur. Generous and crisp with aromatics and a finish that make you reassess the limits of satisfaction, this wine is simply delightful. Perhaps the first rosé from the 2023 vintage to arrive in the US from anywhere on the globe, there were unfortunately only 300 cases made. Hopefully some is left when summer arrives!
