Winemaker Notes

This rosé was made by the saignée (bleeding in French) process of siphoning off pink juice from the red fermentation vats a few hours after crushing the grapes. The team then fermented the wine on the natural yeasts from each vineyard. Fill malolactic fermentation was completed in the vats, then bottled.

Betsy Spann

About the Winemaker:

Betsy’s love of wine was fostered by a move to Bordeaux with her family in 1975 where she explored the wines and cheeses of southwestern France.  After returning to California to attend college she went to work in a small wine shop where her interest grew and she opened her own boutique wine store. She then sold the shop and moved to Dry Creek Valley where she helped with the startup of Lake Sonoma Winery, working both in the vineyards and in wine production.

Betsy’s continued interest in European wines led her to Dallas, Texas to join the fine wine team of a large importing company.  This is where she met Peter, who charmed her with a keen sense of wine and an amazing wine cellar.  They fell in love, and married on one condition: that they would ultimately move back to her beloved California.  When they moved they decided to buy a vineyard and sell the grapes but when it came time to do so they decided to take the plunge and make their own wines instead.

Their experience with the wines of great producers around the world over the past 40 years has been invaluable. Peter and Betsy take the best ideas and techniques they’ve learned from European and California winemakers and apply them to their own wines.

They strive to create food-friendly, unique wines that are memorable and blend seamlessly into the occasion. Memorable in their purity, authenticity, distinctiveness, and enjoyment, seamless in how they integrate into the setting, whether it be with friends on the patio or accompanying a formal dinner. Whatever the time or place, Spann Vineyards will linger pleasurably on your palate and in your memory.

 

 

 

About the Winery
Spann Vineyards
Nestled among the majestic coastal redwoods of the Mayacamas Mountains, the steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. From this and select cool-climate vineyards throughout Sonoma County, Betsy and Peter Spann craft very limited quantities of European-style blended wines, strongly influenced by their admiration of Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and Tuscany.
