We finish off our first season of virtual tasting with two west coast women that I had hoped to get for our COVID-postponed women winemakers tasting celebrating Women’s History Month in March. As her website notes, “many of the words used to describe Faith Armstrong Foster’s wines could be used to describe the winemaker herself. Honest, vibrant, unfiltered, true to her origins, bright, complex.” Faith makes low-intervention wines from fruit purchased from single-vineyards that reflect the diversity of grapes in California and the character of the growers who farm them. The Farmstrong field rosé comes from 80 year-old Carignan and 50 year old Zinfandel, both from Mendocino. It is light, crisp, refreshing and comes in a can or bottle. I actually prefer it from the can (but of course in a glass!), both because it is so fresh and because it provides the perfect serving size of two glasses.
To participate in our virtual tastings, send us your email and we’ll send you the invitation on the morning of the tasting. Info@windhamwines.com
We usually taste two wines, both of which are available at Windham Wines for Friday or Saturday pick-up.
