JoieFarm was one of the first BC wineries to produce rosé, starting the rosé revolution back in 2004. Joie makes Rosé because we love drinking it and we believe it to be the most versatile wine to pair with the food of the Pacific Northwest. It is a versatile friend to any meal or picnic. The inspiration for this wine is the Pinot Noir and Gamay-based Rosés of the Loire Valley, particularly those of Sancerre and Anjou. We appreciate the moderate alcohol and natural acidity that sets them apart from southern Mediterranean counterparts. Pinot Noir gives the Rosé strawberry and Montmorency cherry flavours and a lovely fresh body. Gamay contributes black cherry and spice and adds a little more texture and weight to the mid-palate. Pinot Meunier adds a blast of raspberry fruit. JoieFarm continues to hang its hat on premium Rosé production in a consistent style that is a leader in the ongoing Rosé revolution.
