True rosé is made with intention. The grapes are grown specifically for Lorenza. Four classic rosé varieties, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache are picked at our direction in August at a low brix to make rosé—only. The grapes go direct to press and the juice flows into cold stainless steel tanks for a slow, cool fermentation. The result? Lorenza True Rosé with low alcohol, high acid, delicate and focused flavors.
Lorenza Spritz is rosé + bubbles in a 250ml can. There is no water, fruit juice or anything else in Lorenza Spritz.
Lorenza is a family owned, female founded wine business in 2008 by Melinda Kearney and Michele Ouellet. The team has deep roots in the wine and restaurant business.
Lorenza values the environment and works with vineyards that are either CCOF certified organic or farmed according to the Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing.
Yes. A lot of people ask this question. No animal products and specifically no egg whites are used in the fining of Lorenza or in any other capacity.
Yes. Lorenza is made only from grapes. The wine is fermented and stored exclusively in stainless steel. Sometimes oak barrels are sealed with a wheat paste. No flour or wheat comes into contact with Lorenza Rosé.
Yes. During fermentation all of the sugars in the grapes are converted to alcohol. There is no residual sugar in a bottle of Lorenza Rose.
Alcohol is the result of conversion of sugar in the grapes to alcohol by the yeast. There is a direct relationship between the amount of sugar or brix in the grapes and the resulting alcohol percentage. Because we pick our grapes at a low brix, Lorenza is naturally low in alcohol, usually between 11% and 11.5%.
