TRUE ROSÉ – OUR STORY
Lorenza Rosé was founded in 2008 by the mother daughter team of Melinda Kearney, a wine industry veteran from Napa Valley and Michèle Lorenza Ouellet, an international fashion model. Sharing a love of the beautiful Provençal Rosé, they make in California a wine of intention that is vineyard driven, delicate, dry, low alcohol and full of light. Old vines lend the wine complexity and authenticity and feed their desire to create a rosé of substance. On their rosé journey, strangers become friends and doors generously to open to the outstanding vineyards that have long been the source of Lorenza True Rosé.
True Rosé means that our top priority is rosé. All decisions are made with this focus. In the farming to the timing of harvest, picking by hand and the gentle treatment in the cellar ensure freshness and integrity. We aim to produce a gorgeous rosé that inspires joy!
The sandy soil of the California Delta is home to the ancient vines that provide the grapes from which Lorenza is made. Head trained, own rooted vines, weathered and with stories to tell, these vines are central to the blend. The grapes are hand picked, go direct to press and fermented in separate stainless steel tanks. This allows the individual lots to develop and express their beauty before the final blending. Lorenza Rosé delivers a sun-kissed, mineral driven palate, low ABV and perfect pale hue.
