WILLAMETTE WOWS WITH ROSÉ

Look at this gorgeous rosé rainbow
I know I already did a post on great American rosés, but I’m giving a whole separate post to ones from the Willamette Valley for a few reasons:
1) Willamette is one of my favorite wine regions in the US – it makes AMAZING Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, and you should be drinking a lot more of both. Most of the rosés are made from Pinot Noir, but the color runs the gamut as you can see from the lovely pic above.
2) The wineries sent wines in full force, and my doorman hated me as he piled boxes onto a cart to take up to my apartment. There were so many good ones I didn’t want to just shove one or two into the American post! I got a little carried away…
3) I’m grapefriend, so I can do anything I want.
So without further ado, here were my favorite 12 bottles (so you can put together a case). Many of them are from really small wineries so you may have to order directly from the winery (hyperlinked in each title). Otherwise, you know what area to look for in your local store now.
2011 Ponzi Pinot Noir Rosé
Another light piece of Pinot Noir perfection – strawberry, watermelon – from a historic Willamette winery. We had this before dinner and it paired very well with the sunset.
