Summer Water Debuts Highly Anticipated 2023 Rosé Vintage


Los Angeles, CA (April 2, 2024) – Summer Water®—the award-winning rosé brand from the sun-kissed vineyards of California’s Central Coast—announced today the debut of the 2023 Summer Water Rosé. Renowned for impeccable quality and a commitment to excellence since its inception in 2015, Summer Water set the standard for domestic rosé and has been captivating critics and enthusiasts nationally ever since. With this 2023 release and under the leadership of new CEO Alexandra Savona, Summer Water is ushering in a new era of innovation, energy, and excellence.

Meticulously crafted by long-time Winemaker Ryan Zotovich, the 2023 vintage boasts a vibrant blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah grapes, with notes of minerality and acidity boosted by bright flavors of strawberry, guava, pink grapefruit, and lime zest. The quality of the 2023 Summer Water Rosé is a testament to the distinct and vibrant terroir of California’s Central Coast combined with Zotovich’s principles of minimal intervention winemaking.

“After months of careful work and dedication, following years of testing and improvements, we could not be more excited to share this extraordinary new vintage,” said Zotovich. “The 2023 harvest season was notable: an unusually cool summer prevailed across the Central Coast, which gifted us extended hangtime for optimal grape ripeness, resulting in what we believe to be the finest bottle of Summer Water to date.”

The quintessential rosé of the season, Summer Water has garnered critical acclaim in recent years as a wine characterized by natural acidity and year-round drinkability, earning a Wine Enthusiast 91-point score for the 2021 vintage and a 90-point rating for the 2022. Transitioning seamlessly from grape to glass without the addition of sugar, a light and bright profile makes Summer Water Rosé an excellent companion. Best enjoyed chilled during the moments worth savoring, Summer Water evokes the essence of summer in a bottle, effortlessly transporting consumers to a serene, laid-back state of mind with every sip.

“This launch is at an incredibly exciting point in our brand journey,” said Alexandra Savona, CEO of Summer Water. “The Summer Water team has always poured endless passion and expertise into crafting the perfect rosé. The 2023 vintage is nothing short of exceptional, and we can’t wait to share it with our loyal fans and Societé members, and bring the Summer State of Mind to new drinkers across the country.”
