The fruit used for the 2020 Rosette was sourced from Crawford Vineyard in Prosser, Washington. Pend d’Oreille Winery values the long-standing relationship with the family-owned, Crawford Vineyard. The care and attention to the vineyard is reflected in the quality of the fruit. The Syrah fruit from Crawford Vineyard and the amount of time on the skins promises an attractive Persian pink color in a Rosé.

The 2020 Rosé complements sharp cheeses, salads, and chutneys nicely.

2018 Bistro Blanc
SOLD OUT – Bistro Blanc is Pend d’Oreille Winery’s white table blend, representing fruits from several white grape varietals. The juice of the fruit is pressed directly after harvest. The Chardonnay is transferred to 100% French Oak barrels. A small percentage of the 2018 Chardonnay was tank fermented for added freshness. The Pinot Gris and Albarino complete fermentation in stainless steel tanks to establish the fruity, fresh flavors representative of these wines.
Pairs well with seafood, chicken dishes or a light pasta salad.
