Copain winery is perched on a hill overlooking the serenely beautiful Russian River Valley. Wells Guthrie, Copain's winemaker, discovered early on that his taste in wine gravitated toward Europe in general and France's Rhône Valley in particular. So much so, he picked up and moved with his new bride to the region to learn from the best. For two years, Wells apprenticed for esteemed winemaker and living legend Michel Chapoutier in France's Rhone Valley. At Copain, he creates wines that are firmly rooted in California, yet with the sensibilities of the European wines that so moved him. He is as committed to crafting these elegant, nuanced wines as he is to building a legacy that will be passed down to his daughters in the great tradition of European winemakers whose estates have been in the same family for generations.
Composed of 100% Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley, it is bone-dry, vibrant, and refreshing. This peach-colored wine offers aromas and flavors of cherry blossoms, watermelon, and strawberry. Its bright acidity makes it all the more refreshing and a perfect complement for those warm days right around the corner.
Jean-Marie Rimbert, a native of Provence, arrived in the Languedoc nearly twenty-five years ago and managed the vineyards at Château de Flaugergues for five years until he saved up enough money to purchase his first parcels of gnarled ancient vine Carignan that had been nurtured in schist-laden soils for the better part of the last century.. From the beginning, his objective was to cultivate vineyards with the utmost respect for the environment and his wines reflect all of the natural beauty, depth and flavor originating from those vines. The wines Jean-Marie crafts are a passionate testament to this region's multi-dimensionality and ever-expanding potential.

Provence, in France's southern region, is THE place for quality Rosé production and the 'Cuvée Rosée d'Aurore' is a wonderful example. This classic blend uses Grenache, Cinsault, and Rolle in delivering a light, crisp, and pleasant Rosé that smells of ripe peaches and tastes like liquid sunshine. Open a chilled bottle and enjoy while the Spring sun is shining down. Best enjoyed with linen clothes and a deep, dark Mediterranean tan. $18.00

"The 2012 Rosé exhibits a beautiful pink color, tinged with a subtle salmon hue and coppered fuchsia edges. The aromas pop with wild strawberry, rose, cherry, subtle hibiscus and a touch of citrus, with underlying dried herb, crushed gravel and mineral tones. These bright fruit and savory flavors continue through the palate with great acidity that carries into the finish." $12.00
Les Mis is our first Rosé arrival of spring and we’re so excited about it! Vineyard sites throughout Paso Robles deliver the Malbec, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Petite Verdot used in the blend. A brilliant fuscia color is the first thing you’ll notice. Floral notes of lavender, red candy, and watermelon leap from your glass. Juicy red fruit flavors coupled with zippy acidity and a spicy finish make this a wonderful rosé to enjoy all Summer long.
