Exploring the World of Rosé Wines from Northwestern Louisiana

Landry Vineyards is a family-owned winery located in the beautiful mountainous region of West Monroe, Louisiana. With love and rigor, their winemakers have crafted 24 different wines, including dry whites and reds, semi-sweet whites and reds, and port wines. They also buy premium wine grapes from California to produce premium, handmade barrel-aged wines. Rosé wines are particularly renowned in Provence, situated in the south of France.

These wines come in a variety of flavors and can be found in many regions around the world, such as La Rioja, the Ribera del Duero, the txakoli, Priorat, and even in unexpected areas like Vin de France. The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines provides information on the style and quality of wines made from grapes grown in more than 70 different regions. The Barceló family acquired the Vetriccie estate in 1966 and produces a blend of native varieties (50% Sciaccarelly, 40% Garnacha and 10% Niellucciu) from vineyards that are an average of 25 years old. From the fresh and fruity rosés of Rioja to the light and floral wines of Navarra, these wines capture the essence of summer with their refreshing notes of strawberry and watermelon. Other sparkling rosé wines can be found in Italy's Franciacorta DOCG, such as Crémant d'Alsace and Crémant de Limoux in France, and in several regions of the New World. Chateau Carignan employs sustainable farming techniques to produce this wine in the charming town of Carignan de Bordeaux.

Blending is another method used to make rosé wines, such as “blush” wines found in regions of the New World. Made with a blend of Garnacha and Mourvèdre, classic European grape varieties, this wine is grown in select vineyards in the Golden State. Nowadays, rosé is also made fresh and fruity in Vinho Verde and is fortified as port wine in the Douro Valley.
