Nothing says warm weather and relaxation as unambiguously as a glass of rosé. While we enjoy a crisp white as frequently or even more frequently than we drink rosé, when the rosé rack is overflowing at Windham Wines– as it is now– we know that summer is underway.

Druid’s Pink, 2023

Troon Vineyard Druids Pink Rosé Wine 2023 CompBiodynamic, Regenerative Organic (12.2%)

Applegate Valley $23

62% Mourvedre, 18% Grenache, 8% Cinsault, 7% Carignan, 5% Counoise

Our friends at Troon delivered what is so far our favorite 2023 rosé. Light-bodied yet flavorful, with plenty of fruit and minerality and a crisp, refreshing finish– charming and delicious!

There is so much to say about Troon as a producer. It is summed up with Troon as the embodiment of all we want to support as intentional consumers. Not inexpensive, worth more than you pay.

We have 18 bottles left for the summer of 2024.


VetriccieIle de Beauté (12%)


70% Niellucciu, 15% Sciaccarellu, 15% Grenache

Though a ‘terrritorial collectivity” of France, Corsica (Île de Beauté) is only 56 miles from the Italian coast (105 from the French coast) and its proxity to Italy is reflected in the blend. Niellucciu is the Corsican name for Sangiovese while Sciaccarellu is Mammolo, a variety that originated in Tuscany and contributes a violet perfume and a healthy dollop of acidity for freshness.

The fruit is dark cherry and black raspberry, accompanied by a tart note that accents spice and crispness on the finish– and this one is cheep and cheerful!
