When the JetSettingFashionista picks you as one of the “The Best 2022 Rosé Wines I’m Loving”, you know you’ve arrived! She describes our Amista Sparkling Syrah as “aromas of freshly picked raspberry and orange blossom leave the perfect bright taste on the palette.”
We call is simply, “Joy in a Bottle!"
We first made our Sparkling Syrah in 2008 and it’s been a cult favorite ever since. Other than our club members and frequent visitors, it is still a best kept secret. That was the bubbly that launched us on our journey into sparkling. It started out as a class project at Santa Rosa Junior College, and it was so good and so beautiful in the bottle we decided we had to make it.
We now make six different sparkling wines, all from grapes grown on our estate vineyards, and all using the traditional Methode Champenoise. The post says, “Amista Vineyards produces some of the best rosé wines right here in Healdsburg, California.” We are honored to be on the list!
Our other sparkling wines include Blanc de Blanc, Sparkling Grenache, Sparkling Mataró, Fusión (a blend of Chardonnay, Grenache and Mourvèdre), and our newly debuted Sparkling Tres (a GSM rosé blend). We love bubbles and we are the only winery in Dry Creek Valley with an all-sparkling wine club.
In addition to our sparkling rosés, we also have two limited edition still rosé wines this year, a Rosé of Grenache and a Rosé de Tres, a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. We made only 68 precious cases of each.
We love to have a chilled rosé with our favorite summer meal, linguine con pesto (made with basil, fresh from the winemaker’s garden) topped with wedges of just picked tomatoes. Now that is summer!
The Sparkling Syrah can stand up to heartier flavors, including spicy foods. It’s wonderful with sushi and spicy Chinese or Thai dishes. We even love it with taco salad, which is another of our easy summer weeknight meals. And did we mention the holidays? It not only goes with all the dishes on the holiday table, but it adds a festive pop of color and refreshing brightness to any occasion.
