Altitudes is made from grapes selected from the best vineyards in the Roussillon region of France, situated close to the Mediterranean Sea, just 25 miles from the eastern Spanish border. This area is very warm but thanks to the altitude (600 feet), the wines have a nice mineral finish that balances out the ripeness.
This cuvee is from subtle blends of three or four grape varieties: Syrah for character, Grenache for richness, old vines of Carignan for structure and Mourvèdre for elegance. A lot of names in the area have a Spanish influence as the old border of Catalona used to be close to the town of Millas.

Domaine Santa Giulietta Corse Rosé
The Santa Giulietta estate has belonged to the Stefani family for several generations. Located on the plateau of Pianiccia, in the Eastern plain of Corsica. The 75ha property, planted on a soil consisting mainly of red clay and gravels, benefits from a climate and sun exposure that are optimal for the good maturity of the grapes: hot windy summer days and cool nights thanks to the proximity of the mountains.
The colour is a beautiful bright pink with copper highlights. The nose of red fruits is fresh and intense, with spicy notes on the finish. The finish is long and elegant.
“An energetic rosé, with light savory and cherry pit notes lending a pleasantly edgy feel, while the core of peach and watermelon pushes through the finish.”
