The Pacific Northwest summer unofficially kicks off the day after July 4, and this wine will pair beautifully with any summer picnics, grilling plans, and al fresco dining.
June 22nd – “If summer were a wine, it would be a refreshing Rosé! We are delighted to release our 2021 Rosé of Counoise, just in time for summer,” said Teresa Spellman Gamble, co-owner of Tinte Cellars. “Crafted in the style honed over generations in the south of France, this iconic style of wine highlights the beautiful qualities of this rare and unique varietal, grown in the Rattlesnake Hills of Eastern Washington.”
2021 Rosé of Counoise tasting notes:
This wine was made entirely from whole-cluster pressed Counoise, a red varietal originating from southern France. It retains high acidity and a low amount of tannin and color making it perfect for Rosé. Fermented and aged in concrete, this wine retains aromas of rose petals and peach, with flavors of stone fruit complemented by faint guava and grapefruit.
This delightful Rosé will be available at all Tinte Cellars’ tasting rooms, located in Seattle and Woodinville (please see *locations below my signature), beginning Friday, July 1st.
Price: Bottle: $28 / Case: $336
About Tinte Cellars
Tinte Cellars was founded in 2018 by co-owners and husband and wife team, Tim Gamble and Teresa Spellman Gamble.
Community, volunteerism, and philanthropy formed the foundation of Tim and Teresa’s upbringings; their culture. When they established Tinte Cellars, the business needed to reflect those values and their desire to leave the world better than they found it.
Each year, Tinte Cellars selects a few nonprofit organizations to receive a portion of all wine sales (right off the top).
Five percent of all retail sales and 10% of all wine club sales are split equally between area non-profits each year. In 2022 these charities are: Mary’s Place, Northwest Harvest, Seattle Children’s Behavioral Health Crisis Care Clinic, and the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic. In addition, Tinte invests in a wide range of programs and activities to enable their customers, employees, and partners to amplify their own positive impact on the world. Since it’s inception, Tinte’s philanthropic commitment of cash and in-kind donations to local non-profits has exceeded $800,000.
Tinte operates two tasting rooms near its winery in Woodinville, a third tasting room and event venue in Seattle’s historic Georgetown neighborhood, Tinte Estates Vineyard on Red Mountain in Benton City, Washington, and Tinte Red Mountain Retreat, a short-term vacation rental property nestled in the vineyard.
The Tinte team secured dozens of wine awards over the past four years, recently earning Gold Medals for their Viognier and “Irish Eyes” Red Wine at the Sunset International Wine Competition.
Tinte Cellars wines include: Bishops Blend, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, “Irish Eyes” Red Blend, Malbec, “Ramblers Red” Red Blend, Rosé of Counoise, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Viognier.
