Huge cheers to our girls Erica and Nikki of Yes Way Rosé! Their new site is killer and is your go to for all things Rosé Vibes. Now… Meet the Rosémaker!
Tell us all about Lorenza! Lorenza is a dry, true rosé meaning we harvest the grapes early in the season with the intention of making rosé. We have been making rosé since 2008, before it was cool! We are still making the wine in the same way working with 100 year old Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvedre vines. We started our brand because we love Provençal rosé and wanted to up the game on our own turf with an authentic rosé coming out of California. We’re thrilled the rest of the world has caught on. We believe that Rosé makes people happy and Lorenza is our way of spreading the love.
Where’s your favorite place to stop and drink the rosé? Of course the obvious: on a boat, by the beach, on a pool floatie. Anywhere Slim Aarons would have been. And we love it in the unexpected, like on top of the mountain apres ski style. End the night with Lorenza as a palate cleanser or night cap!
Who would you most like to have a glass with? The whole world! Each other and Everyone! We love turning people onto rosé, especially the skeptics!
When you aren’t drinking rosé what’s your go-to summer drink? Lillet on the rocks with a splash of sparkling water, aromatic summer white wines, grower bubbles.
Wow. Talk about a fun shoot!!! When fab photographer Anna Wolf asked if we could shoot for her magazine, Tidal in Napa we jumped at the chance! Better yet, we got to invite some of our friends to a Ad Hoc fried chicken and Rosé dinner amongst the vines! Check out the magazine for the full feature!
Here at Lorenza, we love a good pairing. Take one part delicious cashmere and one part delicious rosé and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven. We’ve long admired what our friend Greg Chait does with his brand The Elder Statesman and it was a dream to collaborate on a few pieces together! We tapped our resident artist/brother/son Stefan Ouellette to design a pink rosé which we placed on a cashmere t shirt and handkerchiefs! The only thing left to do was have a party! So party we did. Greg hosted us in his gorgeous West Hollywood shop where guests ate tacos, sipped rosé, and draped themselves in the softest fabric known to man. Much love and many thanks to Greg and all our friends who came through! Can’t wait to do it again!
As you might imagine, Summer time is Lorenza time! We love seeing all the rosé fueled fun from all of our friends! Huge love and thanks to everyone for sharing your Summer with us and good news is… Its just getting started!!! Send us your pics and tag #lorenzalife because what other life is there!
As we prepare for the exciting release of the 2015 Lorenza it takes us back to our favorite time of year: August, harvest and the vineyards where Lorenza begins. The warm 2015 growing season and our early picking resulted in the dream: focused flavors and bright acidity. Our harvest with its early mornings and a lot of time in the car began on August 10 and ended August 22. To help fuel the growing demand we re-sourced one of our original gorgeous Carignan vineyards planted in 1900, and thanked the stars for a couple of extra tons of the outstanding Bechtold Cinsault. The Grenache expressed its flashy vibrancy during fermentation with bright aromatics and so much action on the palate. The Mourvedre came in with great acids and intensity. We always count on this varietal for its texture on the mid-palate. The result? 2015 Lorenza! An authentic, dry, delicate, minerally Rosé with a lot of zip. We can’t wait for you to taste it! Below we share a few gorgeous photos from the harvest.
WOW! It was an absolute honor getting to chat with one of our favorite wine writers and awesome humans, Lettie Teague! Huge thanks for sharing our rosé story with the big wide world! Check out the full article here!
