This is absolutely one of the best Rosés for the money. With good Rosés now hovering around $40, this producer is one of the top producers in Basque Country. While others have dramatically increased their Rosés prices, Ameztoi has inched their prices year to year.

Rosés have gotten so popular and their prices have skyrocketed relatively high in the last five years. So much so, I just read an article about fake Roses being produced in and exported out of France.

I selected this Rosé for Hedy’s Strawberry Gazpacho, Tarragon, Basil, Olive Oil. It married the bright fruits nicely, strawberry. The Rosé has just a bit of fizz from the carbonic tank process. The minerality & hint of herbs made for a even tug of war with the Tarragon & Basil.

Love roses. Will try and find this one. There are some amazing French style roses coming out of WA like Syncline Winery, a Mourvèdre blend. $25.

@Kim Brater Spent a week in Walla Walla and a week in the Willamette Valley. So many good producers, so little time. It still surprises me that more people haven’t reached out to discover these regions. On the bright side, because people really haven’t, prices have remained reasonable. Cheers! 🍷

A thin layer of bubble populates around the surface.lemon and lime melange, green apple, tiny bit of chalk. High acid, crazy citrus and green apple bites, lightly fizzy and super fresh but there is a silkiness if you palate can hold on past all that acidity. Yum — 9 days ago

Unexpected, bright, very lively and citrusy. Limey and a little briny. Perfect for a warm humid summer day. Was offered on draft so no bottle to inspect. Hoping to find a bottle. — 21 days ago

Writing advice: If you’re stuck at your desk into the evening on a hot August day, wrestling with a clunky lede, transport yourself to Basque country. It’ll work out. — 14 days ago
