…and boat rides in sunshine. Pink bubbles rising and long skinny kite strings. These are a few of our favorite things! This rosé-inspired farmhouse ale underwent a second fermentation on 2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir grapes and has notes of ripe cherries and delicate rose petals. Mild acidity intertwines with a soft berry sweetness.

After taking the 2020 season off from harvesting wine grapes due to wildfires, we’re elated to have been able to make our next rendition of Raindrops on Roses with 2021 biodynamically-grown Pinot Noir grapes from our neighbors at King Estate. We decided to ferment this beautiful beer entirely on the skins for this go around, aging it briefly in stainless steel before letting it rest in French Oak puncheons we picked up last summer from our friends at Durant Vineyards. What we present to you today is a stunningly pink, rosé-inspired farmhouse ale with a medium tannin structure and wonderful jammy flavors and aromas.
