Raeburn Winery Announces Release of 2021 Vintage Rosé


 Fourth Vintage Poised to Delight Palates for Spring Sipping

Petaluma, Calif. May 17, 2022–Raeburn Winery, an Impact Magazine Hot Brands winner, is embracing the warmer weather with the fourth vintage released in the United States. Raeburn Rosé 2021 vintage (SRP$19.99) is rolling out on shelves nationwide.

Raeburn is inspired by founder and chairman, Derek Benham’s mother Phyillis, who thrives outdoors by hiking, exploring lakes, and exploring nature from a plane. Her way of life is to leave a light footprint or none at all. Raeburn uses the same approach when making their wines by picking the best fruit from Sonoma county’s best vineyards and does not engineer the grapes.

“We are so excited to share our rosé with the world, says Purple Brands Founder and Chairman, Derek Benham “Our Rosé was carefully selected to create a Provencal style wine which is beautifully balanced, crisp, and refreshing.”

The northern California winery borrows its name from an Olde English term which means the river where one goes to drink. This Rosé is from the heart of the Russian River Valley, where some of the world’s best grapes are grown. The wine is ripe and flavorful with notes of raspberry aromas complemented by subtle Early Grey notes. Expect springtime fresh flavors of strawberry, juicy watermelon, and Hawaiian guava.

Coming off the heels of 90+ ratings from its previous vintages, Raeburn Rosé 2021, comprised of 61% Pinot Noir, 36% Zinfandel, 3% Grenache, is another delectable addition to the Raeburn portfolio, which includes award-winning Raeburn Chardonnay and Raeburn Pinot Noir. Available now, Raeburn 2021 Rosé (13.5% ABV) will be available in the U.S in 750mL.  Raeburn Rosé 2021 is best consumed chilled at (45-50 degrees Fahrenheit). It can be enjoyed on its own or paired with light and refreshing dishes like summer salads, seafood, or Asian inspired dishes.

Ripe, luscious, and delicious, let Raeburn take you to the river to share a laugh with friends, enhance your favorite meal or just let the day fall away. Enjoy your wines with Raeburn on social media (@Raeburn_winery).
