The wine industry is abuzz with the upcoming release of a canned Ah-So Rosé.
With many canned wines failing to hit the mark on authenticity, Ah-So Wines elected to take matters into their own hands. The carefully crafted rosé is held to the same stringent quality standard that the Lopez de Lacalle family practices at their Rioja property, Bodegas Artadi and Alicante property El Seque. The vineyards are farmed with the maximum respect for the environment, never utilizing fertilizers or synthetic chemicals, practicing organic viticulture. Low yielding vines average between 15 and 45 years of age are laid in clay and limestone soil providing premium quality fruit. Every grape is hand-picked, carefully selected to ensure absolute perfection.
Gravity is gently used to extract juice using a free-run juicing method that takes up to five hours. This method is then combined with the all-natural native yeast to yield a rosé that’s dry, crisp and delicious. To preserve freshness and flavor, vinification is completed in stainless-steel vats, while fermentation is spread over a time span of 18 to 20 days. To complete the process of ‘Vine to Can’ the Lopez de Lacallefamily purchased a canning line enabling them to control the process entirely.
The canned rosé is exclusively produced at the Lopez de LaCalle Artazu property in Navarra Spain. The winery was established nearly a quarter of a century ago when Juan Carlos Lopez de Lacalle (Carlos Lopez de Lacalle’s father) found old deprived vineyards in the town of Artazu. Captivated by the vineyards and landscape he decided to purchase the few remaining blocks of ancient vineyard blocks and plant new cuttings from the old vines. The new vineyards were planted to ensure that the Lopez de Lacalle family had the raw material to produce the most outstanding rosé wines from Navarra Traditionally, Rosé wines were the most famous and acclaimed wines produced in the region.
