The blending of a fine rosé wine is a delicate art, and Santa Margherita is proud to share this delicious masterpiece. We start with a white wine made from the Glera grapes used to produce Prosecco, then add Chardonnay and a small amount of Malbec to add richness and color. This tantalizing blend undergoes a month-long second fermentation followed by 6 months of maturation in pressurized tanks. Only then is this dry, sparkling treasure ready for you to share at your next gathering.
