A passion for rosé is a Bieler family tradition. In the mid 1990’s son Charles Bieler and sister Mira were taught by their father Philippe how to make and sell wine, and just seven years into producing his own wine, the sibling team sells out of every vintage and leaves the world waiting for more. Charles has named this wine “Sabine”, after his young daughter.

It is beautifully crisp and flavorful on the palate with medium body and notes of red berries, bing cherries, spice and no oak. The finish is long and refreshing.”
