These grapes are left on the vine until 30 Brix. At this time, naturally occurring botrytis sets in the grape clusters, also known as Noble Rot in classic Sauternes production. The botrytis produces luscious honey notes and mouthfeel which perfectly complements the grapefruit and delicate floral aromas of Pinot Grigio.

Appellation

Atlas Peak, Napa Valley

Blend

100% Sangiovese

Luna’s Rosé comes exclusively from one of our best Sangiovese vineyards located on Atlas Peak. The high altitude of the vineyard provides cool evenings allowing our grapes to ripen slowly and delicately, achieving excellent balance and bright flavors.

The 2017 vintage is one we will not soon forget. The otherwise manageable growing season was bookmarked with devastating wildfires. Picked on October 6, just two days before the fires broke out on Atlas Peak, our Sangiovese grapes were spared from the widespread destruction. This wine serves as a reminder to always be present, to live in the moment, and to cherish time with loved ones. We hope you enjoy our Carpe Diem in a bottle!
